    That said, I had been planning on going this year but have had some unexpected expenses so far and so probably will not be spending more money on a swim meet... maybe next year in San Antonio.
    You could go to Orange County this summer! :P

    I want to be able to swim a nationals at Mission Viejo so bad. Thankfully I don't feel bad missing it this year because it seems like Mission Viejo's number comes up to host nationals every 4-5 years so there will be other chances.

    I am actually going to swim at YMCA Masters Nationals in Orlando this spring, and then probably eye Summer Nationals 2020 in VA for my next "national level" meet.

    Re: 2019 Spring Nationals Information

    I am trying to switch my teams so that I can swim relays with friends from another state. I joined a masters team here in Michigan before I figured out that they didn't really compete and practice times didn't work for me and were limited, so I've been swimming alone. I've emailed the contact listed on the USMS site a few times and haven't heard back. Any suggestions? I am signed up for a meet this weekend and that is within the 60 days I believe to where I won't be able to switch if I swim for my current team.

    You need to have the meet director change your affiliation to unattached and make sure it is unattached on the results. Then you need to call your LMSC registrar to fill out a change of club.

    Thanks! Any good tips to getting ahold of the LMSC registrar-I've tried using the USMS site and clicking through the "transfer to a different club" instructions? Is this for the club I am in or the one I am changing TO? Is this something people do often and is it reasonably okay to do? I've only done 1 masters meet and it was a very long time ago.

    Here's the Michigan Masters website that lists the officers and contact info:

    Re: 2019 Spring Nationals Information

    Where are you in Michigan? I train in Battle Creek and there is a group going to Mesa. Michigan swims relays as a state in National level competitions so you'd be able to be added to relays with people from all over the state (unless maybe you're in one of the newest satellite groups and I'm not sure of their status but can definitely point you in the right direction). If your meet is Grand Haven, I'll be there.

    Sorry to hear that, Allen. Check the email you received upon entering. There's an email link to request a refund. The address is events@usmastersswimming.org

    Thank you, I was really looking forward to the meet, but then life happened. Plan to be at Summer Nats.

    Re: 2019 Spring Nationals Information

    Sixth Event, Start Time, Seeding Decisions and Psych Sheets:

    The sixth event will not be dropped. Swimmers will have the opportunity to swim all individual events that were entered.

    The competition will start at 7:30 a.m. every day.

    The 50s, 100s and 200s will be preseeded with the oldest age groups first, slowest to fastest within each age group, men and women separate.

    The 400 IMs and 500 freestyles will require Positive Check-In. They will be deck seeded with the oldest age groups first, slowest to fastest within each age group, men and women separate.

    The 1000 and 1650 freestyles will require Positive Check-In. They will be deck-seeded slowest to fastest by entry time, regardless of age, with men and women combined.

    Psych sheets are available here:
    https://www.swimphone.com/meets/even...cfm?smid=11079

    Empty lanes can dampen competitive conditions and we'd like to avoid that when possible. Although we cannot offer any refunds, if you are absolutely certain you will not be swimming any of the 50s, 100s or 200s, please email events@usmastersswimming.org to let us know. You'll be removed from those events before we seed the meet to cut down on empty lanes and provide for more competitive heats. Please note that once we take you out of an event, we cannot put you back in. Scratches will be accepted through April 5.
