    Re: 2016 Nationals

    Question: Can online entries be amended (e.g., add an event, change an entry time) after they've been submitted (assuming they are amended before the deadline)?

    Yes. Contact Tracy Grilli at meetentry@usms.org if you need to change your entry.
    I can't remember a life before Google.
    Fortunately, I can Google it.

    Is there a reason that qualifying times for LCM summer nationals cannot be posted yet?

    Are there late entries for people who qualify for Nationals after March 28th? Our Zone meet, Colonies, is not till April 8th. Was hoping to qualify there. Thanks

    Late entries are not accepted at Nationals. The March 28 deadline is firm.

    Re: 2016 Nationals

    OK I pulled the trigger sand entered my 6 events for sc Nationals 5 Q times and one that is within 1 sec.
    Let's see if I can do those times now that I have aged up this year?

    Re: 2016 Nationals

    I finally made my first QT! In the 1000 Free. Really going to try to get to Greensboro this spring since it's so much closer for me than this summer and next year's meets. The schedule is cleared, the hubby has given his blessing but I still need to work on the cost. I'm hoping to convince someone into coming with me so we can split a room. Next weekend, I'm hoping to make a couple more times.
    Anyways, I like the 1000, so I'll swim it. But it leaves me pretty wrecked for the next day which is a bummer since I like the 500 Free & 200 Breast as well which are on Friday. My Saturday choice would be the 50 breast my Sunday choice would be the 200 Free and/or 100 Breast. Which leaves me wondering...
    For those of you with more experience flying and swimming, how do you book a flight out on the same day as your last event. I would guess if I left Saturday, the 50 Breast might be noon or 1ish? And on Sunday if I picked 100 Breast, that might be around 4? Does that seem reasonable? Maybe allow 4 hours from estimated time of last event to be super comfy? 20 minutes cool down, 1/2 hour change, 2hours drive/security/wait for plane...that leaves an hour leeway for guesstimated time of event. Does that sound like enough or cutting it close?

    Although I can't provide an accurate response on your questions (I will be driving in, and I have no clue about their airport or the timeline of events), I can say that misery loves company! I'll be swimming the 1650 on Thursday, and the 500 free and 200 fly on Friday.

    CONGRATULATIONS ON MAKING NQT'S!
    Although I made them in 2013 in three events, I think it will be a long time before I make them again (thanks to my hip surgery).

    I have never seen a 400 relay at nats, and I have been going off and on since '73. I believe this is a debut event.

    2009 LCM Nats was 5 days in Indianapolis. The middle day was just relays. 400s and 800 and 200s.

    I am pleased to see a 400 relay at SCY Nats...but I don't understand why it is just a mixed relay. If they are offering a 400 relay, why not one for men and one for women as well!!!

    I wish they did that more often! The 4 x 200 free relay is about the only relay distance that I'd be a valuable team member!!! I'm a liability on a 50 A 100 is long enough that I can contribute, but is certainly not my best distance.

    Hopefully they have a relay day at some future nationals meet and they offer all relays again. That would be fun!

    I'm definitely coming. We looked and have just enough points to help with the travel costs. And it's something I've wanted to do for quite sometime (oddly even in some non-swimming years) but I put the dangling carrot out there that I had to make at least one QT to go. I've decided I shouldn't put it off until another year when I would hopefully be better trained and better prepared since we've got the time, money and health now. If I wait a year, there are so many things that could come up to stop me from coming and I would be disappointed to have wasted this opportunity. We'll have to touch base there! I'll pick my events after my swims this weekend.

    OK, if its the first day or last day. In the middle, its a completely wasted day for those of us who don't have enough team-mates who go to nationals to be able to field any kind of relay.

    That's a good point. Would be best to do it on the last day, I think. Kind of a "going away" party for those of us with enough teammates to field relays

    My advice is to pick as late a flight as possible and then just set a hard deadline for when you need to leave the pool. Just realize going in there's a possibility you'll miss your final event. Looks like the pool is only about a 15 minute drive from the airport, so I would think as long as you've got an hour and a half to two hours between your event and your flight departure you'll make it fine.

    Re: 2016 Nationals

    The Summer Nationals in Oregon seem to have a very unusual (preliminary) schedule.It is proposed as a 5 day meet,there is only the 1500 on Weds, and the relay on Sun is not the first event. What is the thinking for this schedule?
