    The SCM pendulum is swinging away from us this fall. Last fall there were three SCM meets in Oregon alone! (Plus two in PNA, two in Utah, and one in Alaska.) This fall is looking like slimmer pickings with the two you mentioned plus Alaska's meet and two in Utah. The Alaska meet and the first Utah meet both get asterisks due to technically occurring in the summer. The other Utah meet is a Senior Games so infants like myself cannot participate.

    I'm going to the SCM in Modesto this Saturday. The only event I've ever tried SCM is the 1500, so I will be doing several lifetime PR's at age 50.

    Where did you find this? I've been looking for the dates for a couple of weeks, and I confess, I can't find them. Do tell!

    We'll possibly be having a SCM meet in Sandpoint, Idaho this fall/winter. I missed the conference call this last week, but they may have mentioned something about it. The pool is SCM, but it's nothing to write home about. Mainly the gutter system, or lack of, is the downfall of the pool. I remember swimming the 100 and 200 Fly there about 3 years ago, and it was "fun".
    But it is another opportunity.

    Good to know. Sandpoint is not much further than Coeur d'Alene. Depending on the timing, I might be able to get my family to trek out there.

    Only a little over an hour more from CDA. But the meet is usually held in mid-November (at least in the past). I've got nearly a 4 1/2 hour drive, and doing that over and back the same day just isn't fun for me.

    Hey, that one isn't listed on our Dixie Zone Meet Calendar. Thanks.

    Nevertheless, my main focus will be this one:
    Nov. 30-Dec. 2 / SCM: South Carolina SCM Championships. Columbia SC

    Re: 2012 SCM meets & Regional USMS SCM Championships

    According to the ILMSA.com website there are two SCM meets with pending sanctions:

    • Libertyville Sink or Swim Classic (Oct 28) - SCM
    • Leaning Tower Pentathlon and Relays (Dec 2) - SCM


    I think I will aim for the Libertyville meet. I haven't been in a meet in a couple years, and never swam SCM. I suppose I should swim as many as possible since they would all be personal bests. Not sure what the schedule will look like for the Leaning Tower meet.

    This will be my next meet. There are two others in Florida including the Rowdy Gaines Classic.

    Thanks!!! But what a wildly unexpected place to look ... I routinely have trouble finding the dates for this meet.

    I will almost certainly go to this one. The pool in Columbia is surprisingly fast, and the meet is very professionally run. Diann Uustal set two world records at this meet the last two years (both in Lane 1!), and the officials had the paperwork filled out almost before she got out of the pool. It's a really good meet.

    Yes indeed, a high paced meet in super fast water, AND less than 90 min drive for me


    But looks like Orlando this October see below

    I wish I could go, but I have commitments on every day of that meet! Have fun, Swimosaur and Steve! I'll see you guys at Georgia Tech, instead.
