Any MAAC member who participated as a swimmer, volunteered their time or was spectator is welcome to email Kate with any feedback on the meet. Each year we put together notes after the meet and save them in a binder to review so that we can make our meet better than the year before.
I would like to take this opportunity to THANK all of our MAAC members, their spouses, significant others, children and friends who came forward to give their time, donate $ or items for our awesome Goodie Bags. Without your commitment to MAAC the meet would not have been as successful. I personally heard great feedback from meet participants who came from miles around and said they will be coming back again next year because they had so much fun and enjoyed this meet tremendously.
For those MAAC members who were not able to join us this year, we hope you will consider joining us next year. You do not have to compete in the meet in order to participate. We had a number of volunteers who have never been to a swim meet give their time, and very much enjoyed being a part of this incredibly successful event.

The swim meet is only two weeks away. Let Tom know if you have any questions or concerns about being ready or what you need to do. Marshalls and Timers, you will be trained at the meet, please arrive prior to 8:30AM. We could still use a few more lane timers and concessions helpers, let Tom know if you can help out (email firstname.lastname@example.org ) And finally, thank you to all of you who have signed up to swim, sponsor, or volunteer. As you can see, this is truly a team event!
