Hello Maui Swimmers!

We are two weeks away from the Maui trip! We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the island. We are hoping for calm waters from the Ocean Gods like we had last year!  Please see the links below to download the team list and team contact list.

Every team should have at least two representatives at the Captain's Meeting on Friday evening. Any swimmer can attend the meeting and it is encouraged for all participants to attend so that more than one person on the boat knows the race rules.  Bobby will answer any questions you have on Thursday evening at the DAM team meeting and happy hour. Bobby will have caps of each color on Thursday evening for you to pick up. Each team captain needs to bring their own waterproof marker for number marking and something to use as team flag or banner. 

CAPTAINS’ MEETING: There will be a mandatory organizational meeting at the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel, at 5:00 P.M. on the evening of Friday, September 2nd, near the pool, which also will serve as the banquet area on Saturday night. TEAM CAPTAINS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES FROM EACH TEAM ARE REQUIRED TO BE AT THIS MEETING to review any last minute changes, instructions for the start of the race and to pick-up official t-shirts. Team captains or the designee will be required to sign in indicating their attendance at the meeting and that they have reviewed and understood all race rules, regulations and safety instructions. Each captain will need to disperse the extra banquet tickets ordered to their teammates (noted on the contact spreadsheet we emailed you). NOTE: Additional t-shirts and hats will be available for purchase at this meeting and during the banquet on Saturday evening.

If you need to reach Bobby, his cell phone number is 214-794-7946.
