To help keep you posted on what's coming up these next couple of weeks, here is a recently emailed update on meets:

Good morning everyone,
I'm sorry this is so late in coming out, but I've just now started to get the sign-up information for these meets.
Next week we will start the River Country Swim meets.  These meets will be on the following days:
June 18th - 10 and Under Meet @ Kahoka (9:30 AM warm-up, 10 AM meet start)
June 20th - Meet @ Quincy Country Club (5:30 PM warm-up, 6 PM meet start)
June 23rd - Meet @ Canton (5:30 PM warm-up, 6 PM meet start)
July 5th - Meet @ Sheridan Swim Club in Quincy (5:30 PM warm-up, 6 PM meet start)
August 6th - Championship Meet @ Sheridan Swim Club (Time TBA)

A swimmer needs to have participated in at least one other River Country meet in order to swim in the Championship Meet on Aug. 6.

The reason I've been slow to get the registration information out is that I haven't been able to find the event listing for the meets.  However, I've got last year's events and will just go off of them for now.  If your swimmer wants to swim in these meets please let me know asap, so I can get them signed up.  If we have at least five swimmers we will be able to send a coach.

1) Mixed free relays 

2) Backstroke (25 yard for 10 and under, 50 Back for 11 -18) 

3) Long freestyle (50 yard for 10 and under and 100 yard for 11 -18)

4) Breaststroke (25 yard for 10 and under, 50 Back for 11 -18)

5) Butterfly (25 yard for 10 and under, 50 Back for 11 -18)

6) Short freestyle (25 yard for 10 and under, 50 Back for 11 -18)  

7) Individual medley (100 IM all ages)

8) Mixed medley relays

This morning I received an e-mail from the Ottumwa team asking if we'd be interested in participating in a meet at The Beach on June 25th at 10:00 a.m.  If you're interested in this meet let me know and I'll follow up with Ottumwa.  Next week looks like it will be a busy swimming week!

Remember that we will have the first ever home meet at the Aquatic Center on July 23, so please keep that date open on your calendars!  More information will be coming soon!

Thanks, and please let me know as soon as you can about the meets for next week.  You may either e-mail me (amaag@truman.edu) or call my home number at 627-4907.
