2009 Midsummer Madness

What can we say about the small but mighty Midsummer Madness Meet... fifty-nine swimmers raced, had fun, and especially enjoyed the water in the summer heat; coaches and officials enjoyed being splashed for the same reason! Event winners received special Midsummer Madness Mugs... FINA high-point swimmers of the meet received Midsummer Madness Mugs filled with jelly beans... two randomly-drawn officials also won Midsummer Madness Mugs filled with jelly beans, and, because one day it will again be cool weather requiring hot drinks, coffee cards... it was the Madness!!
