    Illinois State Short Course Meet in.... Wisconsin?

    Just heard that ILMSA has awarded the short course state meet. Hosted by Illinois teams, but the facility is in Wisconsin. Were there no bids from within the state lines that could have been considered?

    Really?? Is this a 1st? Were there NO bids from Il. sites? What did we in Il. do to scare them all off??

    I guess this site puts a BIG HOLE in my thinking of limiting out of state swimmers entering "OUR" state meet.

    I don't know if it's the first time, but I was at the meeting. The Pleasant Prairie Recplex sounds like it's better than anything we have in the greater Chicago area.

    According to the draft meeting minutes, the current date looks like April 4-6. I'm sure that's subject to change.

    Looks like you (Jeanne) will have to sanction this meet or whomever is the sanctions chair.
    Will this be one week after the Wisconsin State Meet?
    One a separate note, I just swam with the Sarasota Sharks last week and Rick Walker wants us to really encourage swimmers to attend YNats this year since it will be at the Sarasota Y. Spread the word...

    I couldn't find anything on the RecPlex website about the facility, so I contacted them. I got a reply back with this link:

    They do realize they are going to have to measure before the meet and after every session, right? Unless it is a locking pin, then only before. By the way it looks, we will be swimming into a bulk head.

    The idea of running two pools like Nationals will, I hope, shorten up the meet time line!

    Not to sound mean or putting it down, but moving it out of state just made it shorter! You will most likely see less from down here because it was already a 2+ hour drive plus tolls.

    Not to mention the added swimmers from Wis. to take away medals & points from Il. teams. I'm sure lower & middle Il. swimmers are really confused!!

    Anyone with any questions about an Illinois state meet in Wisconsin should take a look at the pool. If you want to swim in a fantastic pool, this is it.

    Looks like a great pool! Two competition pools should mean we don't have to wait all day...
