    I think about it every day.

    And most of the people on the organizing committee do also. And I am glad you are also.

    Maybe this should be displayed on the usms home page? It's not hard to find, but maybe we should consider making it easier to find? Just a suggestion.

    I've stamped the website address in reverse lettering on my forehead. That way, when I look in the mirror each morning, I remember what my goals are...

    What hotel?

    I was thinking to stay on the Embassy Suites (one room) as I am taking my wife, my two kids and my parents (I am the only swimmer) as part of our vacations, we are driving all the way from Mexico City, but it seems that the Hotel is a little far from the Avery Acuatic Center.

    Any suggestions...

    Hotels

    I personally can't afford any of the Hotels on the list they have on the site even with the "special rates". I need a hotel between 40 to 60 dollars a night since I'm traveling on my own and I plan to stay out there for about 10 days.

    So, I ordered my travel guides from AAA and the hotel search begins.

    Orbitz is always a great place to start a search for a hotel......but be sure to contact the hotel directly and ask if they can better the rate you found on the internet (works 75% of the time)!

    If you see an Internet price that is lower than what is being offered by the Organizing Committee, please let me know as the committee is supposed to have the lowest price generally available.

    Hotels

    Is that for any hotel? Or just the hotels listed on the site?

    Also where do I get the printed registration book?

    Just the hotels on the site, where we have blocked hotel rooms.

    For a hard copy of meet book, send and email to questions@2006finamasters.org

    We would hope that you get the book from the web site though, it costs about $3.00 to mail it out.

    A book is being sent to each LMSC chairman and will be available at certain USMS meets.

    Book on the web?

    This is why I'm confused. I've been looking for the "book" on the site and can't find it. I'm assuming it's not there. How do I get the book from the site? I would like to see this information. If I can't get it from the web by all means mail it to me......but I've been trying to find it on the web.

    Here's the book as posted on another thread. It's there, I've read it and have marked it as a favorite:

    Fina Worlds

    I want to register for FINA Worlds at Stanford in January but I only have two qualifying times for the 50, and the 100 LCM. How can I get a 200 QT when there won't be any long course events this winter in So Cal?

    Ideas, sugestions, insults?

    As Michael Moore has pointed out, you may convert SCM or SCY yards to an LCM time using available conversion forumulas available on the web (Michael, do you have a link?).

    I suggest it doesn't matter. Just make up a time you think you'll be able to swim (or convert a short course time). Even if you have made the cut in the past, unless you're faster than the cut at the meet your swim will be recorded as "NT."
