    [QUOTE=orca1946;319819]I also would like to know, will we have BS ledges? I really liked them at Greensboro. I am even planning to build a "sort of like " ledge to practice with .[/QUOTE} When you design it, let us know how it works/how you did it. Thanks.

    To the best of my recollection and notes from our site meeting in February (Mark Moore, [Head Coach, Mission Viejo], and I are the USMS Championship Committee Liaisons):

    Starting block back foot wedges and backstroke ledges will NOT be available in Riverside.

    1,155 people entered as of now. Anyone want to guess on the final number? I know lots of people typically enter near the deadline (Monday), so I'll say about 1,800.

    I also emailed the Riverside CC head coach, and he also said "no" to both.

    That is big! West coast meets seem to bring 'em out. Maybe Jeff can remind us the size of the subsequent SCY nationals.

    The Championship Committee has decided not to drop the sixth event. Swimmers who entered six events will be able to swim all six.

    Psych sheets will be available soon and all seeding decisions will be announced by next week.

    That's great news! Now if I will be allowed to swim my 200's against my own age group I will be one happy swimmer.
