I posted a comment to Bob's January meeting post, but I suspect it went unnoticed.
I believe that the current TSA bylaws, as written, allow the executive committee (the 4 officers) to approve non-conforming swim teams on an annual basis (see my previous comment for details).
Looking at the map, I see that Riverwood is not farther than Zebulon from 69 of the 71 clubs in TSA. Looking at scheduling, 72 clubs will be easier to schedule than 71. I cannot imagine having to "cut" swimmers from a summer league swim team to be eligible to compete.
I propose that we, the TSA board, ask the TSA executive commitee to allow Riverwood to participate in TSA for the 2008 swim season.
If it works out well, then we can consider amending the bylaws to accommodate out-of-Wake-County members. If it doesn't, then it was only 1 year.
