    Either drive back down the river on the other side and do more sightseeing, flying out of Montreal, or fly out of Quebect City to Maryland.
    LC Nationals, University of Maryland, August 14-17
    Fly back home to Georgia.

    I'm saving my ++++++ up for an awesome trip with my husband!

    I haven't really kept track, but I always make a priority of meeting other Forumites at swim meets. At December's St. Nick's meet, at Georgia Tech, I met ekw for the first time. Swimosaur and Frank Thompson were there, as well, so I made sure we all hooked up at the end. As it turned out, we all won high points trophies in our age groups; see the photos in my profile.

    At Greensboro, a bunch of the Forumites were sitting across the aisle, so my husband shot a group photo of us that is on my profile, too. And, in Mesa, the previous year, bzaks1424, Debaru, and I all met each other face-to-face for the first time. I also met Jaadams1, knelson, Frank Thompson, Jeff Commings, and Rich Abrahams for the first time. It was also fun seeing Allen Stark, SealGirl, Ande, jayhawk, and matysekj, again, as well as my non-Formite buddy, Bob Bugg. (I'm probably forgetting a bunch of others, too...)

    When I'm at a swim meet or training at a pool out of town, I enjoy meeting other swimmers and inviting them to join us on the forums. I met Bill Sive at the Belmont Pool, in Long Beach, when I went "home" for my 50th birthday. It's nice to see him on the forums, now, and know who he is.

    To me, meeting other people is one of the best things about going to Nationals and other swim meets!

    Yes, you will! I am hoping to meet EKW and lots of other people, too! Not going to the social this year (didn't enjoy the food last year) but intend to kibitz with everyone all day Saturday & Sunday! You swimming all 3 breast events?

    MY 2014 includes a three week trip to the Netherlands in Late July/Early August. My son is over there & we are going to tour before bringing him home. I've noticed the Dutch have quite a few OW events, that I might consider when I'm there. I might just not even worry about swimming though.

    I look forward to seeing you at Auburn and introducing you to ekw. Swimosaur will be there, too.

    We are passing on the social, this year, as well. Both times I have gone, the food was just to heavy for me to be eating the night before racing.

    Yes; I will be swimming all three breaststroke events, as well as 200 fly (
    ), 100 bk (first time ever), 400 IM, 500 free, 50 back, and probably some relays with my team. What are you swimming?

    Your Netherlands trip sounds awesome! I love it there!

    Forumites, sorry about the
