Choice of Long Course Summer Meets

As you know, we've been invited to a LC meet in Carbondale, IL on July 10th. It is a one day meet and about a 3 1/2 hour drive. Warm ups start at Noon C.S.T. and the meet starts at 1:00 p.m. It should wrap up about 6 p.m. Members should have the entry form and order of events for this meet already.

We have also been invited to the UT LC meet the same weekend in Knoxville, TN. It's about the same driving distance away. They are on eastern time. Their meet is a 2 day meet at the UT pool. The meet entry and event order have been e-mailed to members.

If you need meet info and event order on either meet, please e-mail mtsumastersswim at gmail dot com.

If you are planning on swimming one of the LC meets, please let me know which you prefer ASAP. Thanks!
