|Important Message: Summer C Finals|| |
Apr 13, 2012
MSI clubs and
With the growth in meet attendance particularly this past season, the Executive Committee of the MSI Board looked at projections for the upcoming separate, all age C Finals meet (at 1,000+). It was determined wise to consider expanding to two sites as was done this past winter. Presently a single long course meet is set for the Bloomington Family Aquatic Center (hosted by the BAC Barracudas). One scenario is to add a second long course facility, however the Executive Committee believes locating a second long course site is highly unlikely. What is a more likely is resetting C Finals to two (2) short course sites.
One club in MSI has stepped forward to offer hosting C Finals at a short course facility. The next step -- the Executive Committee has invited any other team in the LSC interested in hosting a C Finals meet to contact the MSI office. Since time is short a prospective host club will need to secure their pool and notify MSI by April 21st.
We have been in touch with BAC and they are fully aware of the desirability to disperse a large meet over two sites. There may be other decisions to make beyond this announcement, but nothing will change from the current schedule unless there are two sites for C Finals of the same course.
Please contact me by phone or email if you have questions or wish to confirm that your club is willing to host a C Finals meet on July 14-15 (either short or long course). Thank you for understanding the challenges and I know MSI leaders will look forward to hearing from interested host clubs.
