Here is a letter I got from Ken Brisbin of the Long Beach Grunions. How about that first paragraph? Best part was being there to see it all happen:
Dear: Tony Austin:
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for attending the 2008 SPMA Short Course Meters hosted by the Long Beach Grunions. Like last year we were lucky enough to have a fast pool with around 30 world records set. We hope you had as much fun attending the event as we did hosting it.
Looking back at this year's event, we grew to include more swimmers from more places around the country and world than ever before. With this growth came new challenges to maintain the event's efficiency, accuracy and excitement. We, as Grunions, are always up to the challenge, and are always excited to hear both positive and negative feedback from you. This is the best way to help us ensure this meet's continued success so please let us know your thoughts.
