    2021 S C NATS. training starts now!

    A ray of hope amongst all the Covid-19 will be the 2021 S C NATS, for me.
    As I age up to a new bracket [75+] I will start training when pools open to make my 3/4 of a century bracket one to do well in. I hope !

    That’s a reasonable perspective. I’m missing my LCM and possibly SCM age up season, but will age up for SCY. This will be my focus going forward!

    As I found in another thread, National Q times might stay very close to what they are now due to the limited meets in 2020.
    That makes my making required times better for my age up!

    As long as everything is closed, I had elbow surgery this last week. Might as well do it now in the "every thing is closed" season.

    I'm still recovering form the surgery. I'm glad I did it now as it is taking a lot longer to recover than I thought it would.

    Would USMS change Greensboro to an outdoor set up if the plague is still up & running?

    It seems that contracts are in place at this point, maybe as we progress into 2021 we will see what happens. So many things change quickly with this Covid 19

    My bet is no. Maybe a long course meet, but not a SCY meet.
