Additional Information:

In Memory of Steve Engel
June 17, 1943 - February 17, 1996

PNA's annual Championship meet is dedicated to the memory of the co-founder and first president of the PNA. Steve lost his battle with complications from leukemia, but his energy and enthusiasm will long be remembered by those of us fortunate to have known him.

"Across America, there are now more than 30,000 of us. And one of the pioneer associations in the nation was right here in Steve Engel land. Thank You, Steve. Your vision long ago became a solid reality that will endure. It was not a false start. You have swum the entire distance to heaven."
- From Tom Taylor's tribute in the March 1996 WetSet

: T-shirts are available for $18 ($20 for XXL), but must be ordered with your entry. The shirts will include the logo.

: PNA members must indicate the team that they plan to score points for during the meet. Non-PNA swimmers should indicate the club that they are registered with. For many swimmers the club is the same as the LMSC.

PNA Team Eligibility
: To be eligible for team awards, teams must submit a 2011 team registration by the meet entry deadline. PNA team registration forms are available in the WetSet and on the PNA website, www.swimpna.org. (note: PNA teams must register with PNA by 3/26/11)

PNA Team Categories
: Eligible PNA teams will be divided into three categories, (Large, Medium, and Small), based upon the number of swimmers entered from each team in the meet. Category assignments will be made after the meet entry deadline and announced during the meet.

: The meet shall be scored from places 1 through 12 in every age group for every event. Individual events will be scored 13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. Relays score double the individual points. Non-PNA swimmers will not score points and will not displace PNA swimmers from scoring points.

PNA Team Awards
: Plaques will be awarded to the top three teams in each category.

Individual Awards
: PNA Championship ribbons will be awarded first through 6th place in every age group in every event. PNA medals can be purchased for $2 each.
