For those interested in our meet in the Bahamas this December:
 As Shannon mentioned in an email:
  • It might be smart to buy your flights now, but get insurance.
  • Hotel we will book later through our travel coordinator of the trip. This process is complicated, but the hotel deals run from Dec 13-December 22, 2021. This means those are the only nights you will qualify for the major hotel deal we get. NO I DO NOT KNOW PRICES YET, BUT NORMALLY $160-300 PER NIGHT DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU WANT. 
  • The meet itself is December 16-19, 2021. OUR ATHLETES WILL NEED TO BE IN THE BAHAMAS FOR PRACTICE ON WED DEC 15TH (NORMALLY). You should not leave earlier than the 14th of December. Come back whenever you want! 
  • Let Shannon know that you are interested no later than June 1.
