    Per Championship Policy, the meet landing page is due to be published on the USMS website by January 15 for the upcoming Summer Nationals (October 15 for Spring Nationals). The initial meet landing page shall include Order of Events and NQTs.

    If anything is available sooner we'll certainly post it.

    I don't know the answer to your question about Pan Ams. But my answer above relates to the question about 2017 USMS Nationals in Minnesota.

    Will there be shuttle service from the hotels to the pool? I notice they are all downtown and miles away.

    According to an information sheet that was distributed at USMS Convention: "The Light Rail connects the MSP airport and the Mall of America to Downtown Minneapolis and Downtown St. Paul, and includes a stop 2 blocks from the Aquatic Center."

    The hotels they are promoting are located anywhere from 1-3 blocks from the Light Rail station.

    We reserved a room at the Crown Plaza Northstar and plan on walking to the Light Rail Station (3 blocks), and then to the Aquatic Center (2 blocks).

    Thanks Elaine, that is very helpful. My mom is going to be my travel companion, so we are trying to keep the walking to a minimum. 1 city block is do-able, 3 might be pushing it. I will keep investigating.

    I tried to book at The Commons hotel( the host hotel) and the only rooms they had left at the USMS rate were the 2 double bed rooms. Is there a plan for USMS to add more rooms to the block(preferably with king size beds).

    Allen,
    Check with the hotel on what their non-discounted rates are for a greater room selection. They are often just minimally more.

    It was over $100 more per night.

    I would try travelocity or even groupon and see if they might have a better rate.

    I thought it was the most perfect order I've ever seen. 1500, 800, 400, 200 back, 200 free. My best events all on separate days. See you in the 400!

    Forget what I said about "perfect." From the meet info: "Swimmers may enter either the 800 or the 1500 free but not both."

    Booked my hotel and airfare. Now I am impatiently waiting for registration to open I haven't been this excited for a meet since I planned to go to my first nationals at Indy a few years ago.

    The Commons is adding rooms to the block as they are able to add. They are looking into adding King rooms. Should know by early next week if this is an option.
