Happy Holidays from STLMSC
There is no better gift you can give yourself than to renew your USMS membership before December 31. If you renew before 12/31 you qualify for several sponsor discounts and you can help STLMSC win a stroke clinic.
So far 544 2016 members have renewed for 2017 (42%). The LMSCs with the highest renewal rates as of 12/31 can win prizes. We are outside the top 5 by 2 percentage points and 10 percentage points out of first place. We are getting beat... by Arizona, South Carolina, Delware Valley, Nigara, and Ohio LMSCs. STLMCs members, I urge you to accept this challenge and help us beat these guys. We can't lose to these other LMSCs. Renew today. http://www.usms.org/reg/register.php
Also, remember, help us go green and do not check the box requesting we print and mail you a membership card. So far we have had requests for 118 cards, which is fine. We will make a donation of $3.00 to the USMS Swimmings Saves Lives foundation for every card less than 350 we have to print by the end of January. So if no one less requests a card, the donation would be $696 to the foundation.
Also, we have updated the events calendar with upcoming events. Go to www.southtexasmastersswimming.com for more details.
