Mid-Missouri Summer Swim Conference
All teams were in attendance.
Minutes of the Sept. meeting were presented.
Treasurer’s Report was presented, there was no change from the Sept. meeting.
Fayette had a question if swimmers could swim up during Conference. The answer was that the swimmer could during conference, but not at championship unless it was a relay.
Motion was made to change the title of events #47, 48, 59, 60 to 8 and under instead of 7-8. It was brought up that we can only make changes to the constitution during the Fall Meeting according to Article 7. The Spring Meeting is for setting the calendar. Another motion was made to try this on a trial basis for the summer of 2006. The motion was to change event #47 to Boys 8 & Under Butterfly, event #48 to Girls 8 & Under Butterfly, event #59 to Boys 8 & Under Breaststroke, event #60 to Girls 8 & Under Breaststroke. All teams present voted in favor of this motion.
Question about who is eligible to swim in championship. The answer was they must swim in 2 swim meets during the season and be on the swim teams roster by July 1st . Also, a swimmer can only be on one team per season, swim season is June 1st-July 8th.
Question about swimming in 2 meets if a meet is cancelled it does count towards eligibility, plus a swimmer can swim in other teams meets to meet eligibility.
Question about how many relays a team is allowed at championship. Answer was unlimited relays. Mixed relays must be during the boys relay events, but listed as mixed not boys.
Discussion that Roster and Entries are due by July 1st,

The schedule was set first meet was May 31st – last meet was July 6th. Championship is Saturday, July 8th.
There was discussion about why there was a balance of $5000 and why teams were still expected to pay $5 a swimmer. It was decided that we would discuss this at the fall meeting. The Treasurer was instructed to check the spending for the conference and have it ready to present at the fall meeting.
It was discussed that we needed to update the website information. The Secretary was going to try and work on that.
Don Smith offered to have a stroke judge official training for those who were interested. Those who are interested need to contact him to set up a time.
