After last night's meeting, I looked at the bylaws for what type of change might be necessary to allow a club from outside Wake County. The only reference to Wake County is in Article II section 1.

"Membership in this Association shall be recognized private clubs or private swimming clubs located within the limits of Wake County. Any such club shall provide proper swimming facilities for dual meets, and a minimum of four (4) swimming lanes of not less than approximately 25 yards in length.

For clubs that do not meet the above standards, their membership status will be reviewed annually by the Executive Committee, prior to the March meeting of the Board of Directors (Board)."

It seems to me that a club outside of Wake County would fall under "clubs that do not meet the above standards" and that no bylaws action would be necessary to admit Riverwood on an annual basis. Is that a reasonable interpretation?

I am more comfortable with an annual renewal for an out-of-county team than with letting them in "forever", like the rest of us, and I beleive that the current wording of the bylaws would allow that.
