    Re: 2013 nationals

    I have seen two different dates for Indianapolis - last week in April or May 9-12. Which is correct? The minutes from last year state April but the link above announces it is in May. Thanks

    The flyers distributed at Spring Nationals in Greensboro say May 9-12, 2013 for Spring Nationals in Indianapolis.

    The bigger question: Which day will each group (male/female) swim the 500s?

    Re: 2013 nationals

    I thought I'd share my experience with trying to make hotel reservations for 2013 Nationals. The hotel information is posted now at http://www.usms.org/comp/scnats13/hotels.pdf. The rates for the Fairfield Inn, Springhill Suites and Courtyard Downtown are for one person in the room, per night. If you try to book either of these with 2 persons in the room the rate increases $10 per night. The Fairfield and Springhill online registration only allows you to get the group rate for one night, but you can get longer stays at the group rate by making a phone call, still $10 more if you have more than one person in the room. The least expensive rate online for Embassy Suites with or without our code was $179 unless you go advanced purchase. Perhaps calling would be different. All the listed hotels have fees for parking - $23 per night for Fairfield, Springhill and Courtyard Downtown, $19 per night for Courtyard Canal (at the Capitol) and Residence Inn Canal, $28 per night at JW Marriott and $22 per night at Embassy Suites. Breakfast is included at Embassy Suites, Fairfield Inn, Springhill Suites, and Residence Inn Canal.

    Is it just me or are the QTs substantially easier for 2013? I guess the tech suit bubble is bursting.

    I aged up also but, for example, the 1650 is 8 seconds slower than Greensboro.

    It's you- possibly. I still have the pdf for 2012 NQT's and all three of the women's 50-54 breaststroke events have faster qualifying times than last year.
    In my age group, the 1650 has a qualifying time that is 7 seconds faster than Greensboro!

    So, who's going to Indy? I wasn't sure we could squeeze it into our travel budget, but my husband is encouraging me to go. I haven't decided for sure, but I do have a hotel room reserved, just in case.

    Indianapolis is also the location of the Association of College and Research Libraries conference about a month earlier. Librarians, being helpful people, have put together a list with information about music and theater in downtown Indianapolis that may be of interest if you are planning to do some sightseeing, etc., during your time at nationals. It is available here: http://crln.acrl.org/content/73/10/601.full

    Re: 2013 nationals

    I worked out @ the Natatorium Friday night. All the pools up in my end of Indy were broken or shut down. I had to swim between the bulkheads due to a couple college teams in the rest of the pool. The water really felt warm.....yuk. I thought the Nat always kept the water @ 78 degrees. Other than that it was a great swim.
    Oh, they have a big, new parking garage adjacent to the old one. For some reason I didn't have to pay to park. I'm really looking forward to Nationals!
