Letter from the Editor

The results of the 5K and 10K Postal National Championships are official and there is a list of our NC swimmers with their placements.

In the club scores in the 5K Postal National Championship, NCMS was third behind the Masters of South Texas and Oregon. We can do better!! NCMS is a large club, and I am convinced that many more swimmers could participate in the postal championships and give these other teams a run for their money.

So here is my challenge to all you distance swimmers out there: next year the same series will be held starting with the One-Hour Postal in January. Get some team mates together, swim one and count one, it is that simple! Please check the Swimmer magazine of Nov-Dec 2013, pages 42 and 44 for a preview of next year's Long Distance and Open Water Championships.

In this issue are some decisions made by your Board of Directors in this month's board meeting.

I still have some of the T-shirts that were handed out at the 2012 USMS Nationals in Greensboro. Only Large and XL sizes with short sleeves. If you'd like to purchase one of them, the price, including mailing, is $8.50. You can send me an Email at: gvanmeeteren@gmail.com with your order, and I'll let you know if I still have what you want and send it off to you.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
