    Online entry is open for the 2017 USMS Spring Nationals. The entry deadline is March 27, and late entries are not accepted. Please be sure to enter the meet when you are contemplating your travel arrangements. Don't be one of the unfortunate swimmers who books flights and hotels but forgets to enter the meet!

    I can't remember a life before Google.
    Fortunately, I can Google it.

    If you're a male distance swimmer: bring on the pain. 1650 and 1000 on Thursday. 500 first thing Friday morning.

    Thanks for the list! Can you comment generally on the Corona or Moreno Valley areas? Those seem to be the other two areas with quite a few hotels.

    Kirk, I wouldn't be too concerned that the listed hotels are already booked. This just means that the discounted rooms are sold out. I booked at one of these hotels (Hyatt Place) several days ago for a very small amount over the discounted rate.

    I don't know too much about the Corona or Moreno Valley areas, but I do know that they are not that far. I only know that the Hospitality Lane area is freeway close and should take about 11 to 13 minutes to drive to the swim venue. Traffic will be an issue during the week anywhere in the area but is light on the weekends. The venue for me is a 11-15 minute drive from my home.

    Thanks for the replies. Turns out the Courtyard Marriott that's on the "official" hotel list had a room for me, so I'm all set.

    Why are the men's medley AND freestyle relays back to back?

    The order is the Men's 200 Medley Relay, then Women's 200 Medley Relay, then Men's 200 Free Relay, then Women's 200 Free Relay.

    normally there's a day between men's / women's relays though I realize sometimes there's a mixed relay right after a men's or women's relay. Just doesn't seem like much rest to me.

    Could be worse. My 4 best events (1650, 1000, 500, 200 back) are the within the first 5 events offered. Fortunately, I have the 100 breast for some quality rest before my 200 back See you there!

    but Kurt you're a distance god who thrives on the challenge. I am a lowly whiny sprinter who needs his recovery time. 😝

    Hey, I saw the 3:12 300 you did in practice last week. You can't play the sprinter card with us!

    Just catching up with old threads and noticed this post. I'm skipping spring nationals to go to World Master Games in New Zealand. I'm bummed to miss nationals, but after seeing these events stacked on each other (I didn't even look at the order of events), I'm a little less bummed. If I had to miss one, I guess this is a good one to miss!

    Does anyone know whether the backstroke wedge will be used, or for that matter, whether the blocks have the back foot wedge? Inquiring sprinters want to know.

    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 .
