    Illinois State Meet 2014

    The Illinois state meet will be held on the weekend of April 5-6 with distance events preceding that Thursday and Friday. This meet will be held in Pleasant Prairie, WI. If interested, check out the meet info sheet to start planning your events. Online entries open Jan 8 at 8:00AM, according to the club assistant site. That means distance people need to register early to secure a place in the meet before it fills up.

    As of 11:00 AM still no open sign up. WOW the "builders" of the site must be having a really bad day.
    I am going to refrain from sending any e-mails to them about this delay.

    Re: Illinois State Meet 2014

    I find that this email that is being sent around by Evanston Masters not really in the "spirit" of the new rules that ILMSA has adopted for the state meet.


    From: Evanston Masters <evanstonmasters@gmail.com>
    Date: January 7, 2014 at 5:12:25 PM CST
    To: Evanston Masters <evanstonmasters@gmail.com>
    Subject: State Meet distance event workaround
    Team,

    Please see the suggested workaround for the distance events at State under the new restrictions, courtesy of fellow Catfish Phil Dodson:

    State meet registration starts Wed morning 8:00 am, TOMORROW! For those swimmers interested in entering the 500 fr, 1000fr and 400IM who have not "achieved a provable time" within the last 2 years I suggest the following:
    They should go ahead and enter any or all of these events with an entry time of their best guess.
    Later, between now and March 25th, they can do a time trial in workout or a meet and adjust their entry time accordingly by notifying the meet director of a "correction" to their entry.

    -Evanston Masters

    Re: Illinois State Meet 2014

    Maybe, but ----- Being that the Reg. for state is 3 months ahead of the meet & many swimmers have not even renewed their 2014 cards, this may be a solution. I have contacted Laurel with my own concerns & listed those on my entry to explain.

    The mail I got from Evanston Masters indicated they just learned about the change. Since they've had a bit of coaching turnover this fall, I think that's something that could have easily fallen through the cracks. I don't think their workaround is an attempt to game the system, and assuming swimmers who still need to generate suitable seed times do so and get their times to Laurel, I think that will be fine. The intent is to try and get more accurate seed times so the distance events at the state meet run a bit quicker. Having someone sandbag their time in the 1000 to get "clear water" in an early heat, or submitting an unrealistically fast seed time would be worse than updating seed times ahead of the meet. As long as Laurel has seed times far enough in advance to seed the events, I think it's all good.

    I agree, I hope Laurel does not overloaded the last week b4 state!!! Maybe she should put a time limit for changes - 4 weeks b4?
