    See post #37 in this thread. Kathy Casey is the chair of the USMS Rules Committee and she will be at the meet:

    Whew! I'd ordered an acid green Powerskin Carbon Pro last week, only to be unable to get it above mid thigh (size 32). Overnighted a return and exchange for a LZR Racer Elite 2. Glad I did, otherwise I would have been up a creek!!

    The latest wrinkle in this story is that USA Swimming is going to allow the suits until June 3rd!

    That's great Kirk! Now, if only I could afford one, I could use it for our home USA-S LCM meet here in Wenatchee, Apple Capital, which ends on June 2nd.

    In that article it said USMS still won't allow the suit at nationals even though USA Swimming will allow the suit to be used till June 3. This makes no sense to me.

    I found the Arena website less than helpful.Evidently there is supposed to be some place to take or send the suit,but I couldn't find on the site where.I assume people at Nats can turn them in there,but it says it will take 8 wk to get the new suit.

    Me either. I'm not swimming in Indy and, if I were, I wouldn't have a Carbon Pro (not worth the $$ for a jammer even if legal IMHO), but, c'mon USMS, let's save a lot of people some headaches this weekend and let the suit in the meet.
