News from Convention: seven delegates represented the LMSC in Dallas, TX at the Annual 2010 USMS Convention on Sept. 15-19. Meeting details are available in the various meeting minutes, but here are some highlights:
- Over 160 changes to the Rules of Competition were considered, but here are the results from some of the most important ones. Most of the controversial changes failed to garner much support: no tech suits in yards, no changes in age-up date or in relay age-groups.
- The locations of the 2012 USMS National Championships were revealed. The pool national championships will be in nearby Greensboro, NC (April 26-29, 2012) and in Omaha, NE (July 5-8, 2012). The long-course championships in Nebraska will be in the Qwest Center, site of the 2012 US Olympic Trials, and will follow almost immediately after trials.
- The order of events at Nationals for 2012-2015 was decided upon. It will rotate between three different meet schedules. These schedules are subject to change by the Championship Committee and slightly different versions may make it into the Rule Book.
