News and Announcements:

There will be a SLAM General Membership Meeting at Marquette High School on Sunday, April 13th after event 22 of the Ozark LMSC Championship.  A motion to increase the SLAM annual dues will be voted upon to offset the handling fee that USMS will be charging SLAM to collect the SLAM dues.  Bylaw Amendments will also be considered, as well as the SLAM 2014 budget and 2013 financial statement.  The Agenda can be found by clicking HERE.  The minutes of the last General Membership meeting, Sunday, April 1, 2012 can be found HERE.

Attention all competition swimmers.  Some new rules have gone into effect since Sept. 25, 2013.  The stroke rules affect all courses and all strokes except freestyle. Please read to avoid disqualification.  New swim rules.

Congratulations to Mary Pohlmann and Bruce Hopson, recipients of the 2013 Ozark LMSC Service Award.
