BB Meet at The Colony Canceled

Lewisville ISD has closed all district athletic facilities. Therefore, the "BB" meet at The Colony has been canceled. Lakeside Aquatic Club will be refunding all entry fees, and we will let everyone who entered know what your options are once MAC has received its refunded fees. Most likely, we will hold the fees and apply them to the next meet in which your swimmer is entered. Stay tuned, we'll let you know when we have more information.

All Practices Canceled

Effective Thursday, April 30, all MAC practices are canceled until further notice or May 11 due to the swine flu outbreak. This is a directive from Mansfield ISD Central Administration. More information will be available in the coming hours and days. We will do our best to keep everyone informed. Please continue to check the blog as well as the natatorium web site for updates on the situation.

Getting to the BB Meet (edited 4/28/09)

If you're traveling to The Colony for the BB meet this weekend, the address on the meet info (5729 Memorial Drive, 75065) may get you to the high school, but not necessarily to the natatorium - their facility is off campus.

Coach Huffman says some map searches (like Yahoo!) will take you to the pool using that address. For you folks, just ignore this post.

If you're using Google, the address doesn't work.

The pool we'll compete in is located on the corner of Trailview and Memorial.

Go with something like "Memorial and Trailview 70565" in your map search, and you'll have better luck.

Some internet maps have not been updated to show newer construction. Memorial has been finished between Paige and Worley.

If you use Google Maps, try the "satellite" view and you'll see the pool on the northwest corner of Trailview and Memorial.

Finally, there's a water park at the corner of Memorial and Paige. If you end up there, you'll need to travel east on Memorial a little further to get to the meet.
