During the USA Swimming Grand Prix meet held in Charlotte May 10-13 this year, I was asked if the LMSC for NC might sponsor a golf hole or one of other sponsorship opportunities at a golf outing in early June to benefit the Medalist Club. This outing will be at the NorthStone Country Club in Huntersville NC on June 4th.
The SwimMac Medalist Club is a non-profit to which donations can be made for providing financial assistance to the SwimMac Team Elite swimmers who have been training in the Charlotte area under David Marsh and Peter Verhoeff for the upcoming USA Olympic Trials in late June. Many of us who participated in the USMS short course national meet in the new and beautiful Greensboro pool saw some of these swimmers in action. It was very evident that everyone in the natatorium was cheering for them in their quests to make the USA Team.
USMS rules do not allow LMSCs to make contributions other than for something that would directly benefit each and every registered swimmer in that LMSC.
Our LMSC board is in favor of helping this organization raise funds, especially just before the 2012 Trials, so we've agreed to publicize the golf outing via our monthly electronic newsletter with the hope that many of our registered members will feel like participating in the golf outing or just making a financial donation directly to the SwimMac Medalist Club.
Check out the golf outing and the multiple opportunities to sign up for something that might appeal to you and perhaps to your swim buddies, while at the same time, helping this organization monetarily. Here is the link for the golf outing:
If you'd prefer to mail a check payable to SwimMac Medalist Club, which will help out with travel, food, motel, etc. costs, here is where to send it:
