It looks like the Greensboro Aquatic Center (http://www.greensboroaquaticcenter.com) is clear for Wednesday swims on 5/20 and 5/27. I would recommend moving things up an hour, from 10am-12pm, so that we can swim in the deeper diving pool (17' deep, 80ºF) . Adding a Sunday swim on 5/24 or 5/31 is also a possibility.

Upcoming Event: World Ocean Day at the Greensboro Science Center

A January Merfolk Festival: As the NC MerFest will not be held this January, who would be interested in a shindig at the GAC the first weekend in January? Granted, I'd have to rent the pool, so we'd need a chunk of change. We might crowdfund for that; if there is enough interest we are in, if not - no harm no foul.

1) The Greensboro Aquatic Center​ has posted the June calendar. I recommend the following days for Triad Merfolk​ gatherings:

Wednesday 6/3, 6/10: Diving Well from 10am-Noon*
Wednesday 6/17, 6/24 Competition (Lap Pool) from 11am-1pm

On Sunday 6/14 and 6/21 the Diving Well is open from 10:30-5pm but is restricted to two lanes due to swim meets. Guilford County schools let out on 6/16 so I recommend meeting on Sunday 6/14 from 11am-1pm.

* - The Diving well is 17' deep, 83ºF, and occasionally has underwater speakers and bubble curtains. It's a wonderful experience!

2) The Greensboro Science Center​ will be holding a World Oceans Day Celebration on Saturday, June 6 from 10am - 2pm
