Dear Parents,
The line-up for this Saturday's away A-meet against the Burke Center Penguins (BCP) has been sent out via FMST listserv. Selection for A-meets is based on swimmers' times and availability. If your swimmer is on the line-up sheet, but is not available, please advise me ASAP. Please note that all swimmers are to remain at the pool until the end of racing at approximately 1100 hrs. Below is venue information including timings and parking.

The lot adjacent to the Commons Pool and Community Center is reserved for FMST. There is limited parking there, but there will also be parking in the VRE parking lot, 100 yards down the street, just past the pool on the right.

Due to increased parking scrutiny, please do not park in the grass or in unmarked areas. Parking on the street between the pool and the VRE parking lot should also be avoided. Some cars have been ticketed during meets.

Setup Locations
The visiting team setup area is in the grassy area near the picnic tables and umbrellas across the pool from the entrance. There is limited shade in that area - you may wish to bring tents for shade.

Snack Bar
There will be a snack bar with standard breakfast swim meet fare including bagels, drinks, and snacks.
