    CMSA Championship Entry Form

    While completing my CMSA Championship entry form, I noticed that it was very easy to add the number of events into the total entry fee required (instead of just using it to calculate the fee for that number of events). I had already written my check before I noticed the problem. I ripped up the check and wrote a new one, but I'm afraid others might make the same mistake that I did.

    Sometimes we don't catch problems until we actually put a form into use, so please be careful as you calculate your entry fee for the CMSA Championships.

    The entry form is available in our latest CMSA newsletter and online in the meet market section of cmsaswimming.org.

    Thanks.

    I'm curious, did you have the same problem last year with the entry form? I ask because:

    1. The host committee used the form that was emailed to us by the CMSA President.

    2. The entry form is identical, with the exception of a line for the T-shirt, to last year's entry at Barrington.

    I was also talking on the telephone when I filled the form out. I wasn't paying a lot of attention to the form.

    Thumbs up Look out State Meet, here we come!

    Evanston and UIC have done a great job putting together an above par State Meet! Over 450 swimmers with relay folks. Awesome! Technology know-how gives us the heat sheets in advance, let's us visualize our swims better, and experience the agony of defeat before it happens, so cool. Each time I review the heat sheets my legs get tired. Good stuff.

    I look forward to State Meet each year because I meet friends that I have not seen in too long of a time. James Ralph, Stephanie Mullins, Sue Welker, John Pratt , Rich Mueller's daughter and such. I am ready for my mediocre swims, I fear not. The 2005 State Meet is proving itself to be quite fast. I look forward to seeing the great swims from all ages, including Barb Delanois'.

    So as I sit here and type, drunk on a Sunday night, I imagine myself winning my heats next week cause Dave McClellan did not show up, and I am happy. May all 35+ males get the flu this week. Godspeed.

    State Meet! Bring it on Naperville Waves, Catifsh love to swim fast amongst Waves. other teams too. Yahoo!

    Sue:

    Evanston, being a co-host, has a copy of the heat sheets. I just emailed a copy to you.

    Regards,

    Now that the cat is out of the bag and just for kicks, the 2005 State Meet Heat Sheets are also available from the www.evmasters.org homepage. Now everyone can see'em.

    Changed to Heat Sheet

    PLEASE NOTE - we have received a few emails already indicating wrong seed times, missing events, team affiliation, etc. We are making corrections now, and will post a revised heat sheet listing as soon as we're done.

    The heat sheets that will be provided upon check in, will be the final copy.

    Exclamation Heat Sheet corrections

    If anyone has issues with their events, please email David at david@davidschiff.com before 11AM Tuesday morning. After that the heat sheet is final and any changes needing to be made after that we will put swimmers in the first heat or open lanes.

    Please refer to the Evanston Masters webpage for the listing of the heat sheets.
