USMS ePostal National Championships
The final USMS ePostal National Championship events are currently taking place. The 3000/6000 yd events can be swum in a yard or meter pool (meter times convert at point of registration). The swims must be swum between 9/15 and 11/15.
 
Like all postal swims, you should swim the event/s first and then enter the competition online.
The event information is here:
https://www.clubassistant.com/club/meet_information.cfm?c=1287&smid=12501&_ga=2.113600964.254079031.1569437870-1484845184.1567883027
 
You must have someone time your swim and record your 50 splits. An official split form can be found near the bottom of the meet information page at the above link. Talk the event up with your teammates and coaches. 
 
As always, your clubs can form relays using your results, so don’t forget to enter the event once you’ve done your swim. Questions? email Sally Dillon at salswmr@comcast.net or post a reply.

News from SplashForward: King County Residents - don't forget to vote in the upcoming special election. Aug 6th Ballot: King County Parks Levy –  $44M Aquatics Capital Grants Program. On the ballot is King County Proposition No. 1 - Parks, Recreation, Trails and Open Space Levy. There is information about  Proposition No. 1 on page 65 of your voter's pamphlet. This 6-yr levy (2020-25) would replace the current levy expiring at the end of 2019 and generate $810M. A $44M Aquatics Capital Grants program is included to fund grants for capital needs at new or existing aquatic public facilities.
THANK YOU to our King County Councilmembers and to the Regional Policy Council for ensuring the Aquatics Capital Grants program was included. Learn more: Parks Levy ProposalParks Levy FAQ

SplashForward posts on PNA and PSM Facebook pages: We are building our community base and raising awareness, having met with every Bellevue City Council Member (even the newly elected). They have been very receptive to this great need for a new aquatics facility, seeing our vision for how the greater Bellevue community would benefit. We are also working with the Bellevue School District to help facilitate the relationship between them and the city. We are engaging with the local high school aquatics families and swimmers to identify key spokespeople who will help us voice the unmet need to the School District Board and City Council. And we recently met with King County and all the Parks and Rec Directors from Bellevue / Redmond / Kirkland. We need each other to find success in building a regional aquatics facility… which SplashForward thinks should be in Bellevue!
