October 2017 Announcements from the Wisconsin Masters LMSC
This Announcement email is sent to USMS members that have registered with a club or workout group affiliated with the Wisconsin LMSC, which includes unattached (UC20) in the Wisconsin LMSC.
A new issue of the Wisconsin LMSC Newsletter, October/November 2017, is available on the Wisconsin Masters website. Click the "Current Newsletter" button to view the Wis. Masters website Newsletter Page.
At the USMS Annual Meeting held in Dallas, Sept 13 to 17, several rule changes were passed that affect swimmers. Please read the newsletter to see the rule changes noted on page 6 and page 7. USMS also sent an e-mail to all members noting rule changes.
Congratulations to Elyce Dilworth who is a recipient of the USMS Dorothy Donnelly Service Award. See more info in the newsletter.
The two events being held in Wisconsin before 2018 are the West Bend West HS SCM meet on December 2nd and the Wisconsin Water Warriors Fitness Event during November and December. Information on these events is in the Newsletter.
The Wisconsin LMSC Annual Meeting was held on September 23rd. New Officers were elected. Mary Schneider is the new Chair of the Wisconsin LMSC. Officer names are updated on this announcement, in the Oct/Nov newsletter and on the USMS website.
If you missed the USMS Summer Nationals, the USMS Spring Nationals in 2018 will be held at Indianapolis at the IUPUI Natatorium on May 10th-13th. We do not often see a USMS Nationals held within driving distance of Wisconsin. Please consider attending the event in spring as it will be several years before a USMS National meet is close to Wisconsin again.
The Wisconsin Event Schedule for 2017-2018 is published on the Wis. Masters website and also in the newsletter. Some events have tentative dates or TBD dates. As these dates become fixed, the website will be updated to reflect any new dates. As events become sanctioned, the events will also appear on the USMS calendar.
This summer, Hannah Saiz set a new FINA Masters World Record in the W25-29 200M Butterfly. Setting a FINA Masters WR is a huge deal. Congratulations to Hannah for setting the record.
Enjoy reading the communications from the LMSC. Please email any feedback to Mary Schneider, LMSC Chair. Mary has been doing a tremendous job for the LMSC by publishing the newsletter and authoring much of the content.
Jeanne Seidler, Vice Chair
