    Thank you very much, Jillian. That was very helpful.
    Perhaps this or other such communication should be distributed to all USMS members?
    Surely I'm not the only one who expected a 2018 long-course USMS meet and who now wonders how the decision to defer to the UANA meet affects their plans.

    You will like the Pan Am championships. When held 4 years ago in the US,, it was extremely efficiently run! The pool in Orlando is an indoor pool. It is in a great area in Orlando; lots to do and see, many good restaurants.

    Re: 2018 Summer Long Course Masters UANA Pan American

    I was looking at the UANA Pan American Championship website to get the schedule of events for swimming. If you click on Swimming at the top of the home page and then scroll down, you see the schedule of events. The dates listed on the USMS website and the dates listed on the UANA website do not include August 4th. On August 4th they have the 100 breast and 400 free. Open Water is August 5th. So the dates for swimming on our calendar should be July 28 - August 4 (not August 3). Date for Open Water August 5th with warmup August 4th. Event limit is 5 events, plus Open Water and relays.

    So, the meet runs 1 day longer than advertised, the 800 free and the 400 free are a week apart, and there is no 1500 free. Is that right?

    The schedule decreases my desire to go. The swimming lasts 8 days. My wife's best events are the first 4 days, mine the last 3.
    Thats a long time to be somewhere for a swim meet. Worlds isn't 8 days of swimming.

    Allen, hate to pop your bubble, but the Pan-Am schedule IS a typical World Championships schedule (seven days in the pool and one day of open water). I agree completely that it is a long time to be somewhere for a swim meet, so I do not plan to be there.

    I usually try to attend 1 Nats a year, but SCY is late this year and conflicts with my summer league Swim team duties and LCM if you count travel days in and out would be 8 days to swim five events. Really have no desire to be at a meet for 8 days of which several days I would have no events to swim. Looking at Southern Pacific zones mid August or maybe skip LCM all together this year.

    Re: 2018 Summer Long Course Masters UANA Pan American

    the worlds/panam format of 6 pool days and 1 openwater day with a relay only day in the middle
    is as much about time and fatigue management as it is about swimming fast.
    i have written this several times in the last 6 years

    The Worlds schedule with the 800 and 400 frees at opposite ends of the meet really needs to change.

    I haven't seen any postings about the UANA Pan American in quite some time and the registration is closed now. I can't find anything about the competition time (time of day the events start) nor anything about warm-ups the day of competition and after competition is done for the day. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Why am I prompted for a password when accessing the PAN AM website and/or the results?:

    I have to check it out of curiosity. Because you have to admit that the topic is good
