Dear Parents and Swimmers,

We have continued to monitor the weather forecasts throughout the state and in the local Saginaw area. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for much of the state and most areas are expecting rapid accumulations of heavy snow and strong winds beginning later today and throughout the night with hazardous road conditions. We have discussed the matter internally and in consultation with other YMCA coaches. Out of an abundance of caution we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Saturday morning session of the YMCA 9 and Up State Meet. The safety of our swimmers, families and coaches must be our top priority. At this time we still plan to run the Saturday afternoon session, but will assess the situation in the early morning hours and provide any necessary updates at that time. We will move forward with as much of the meet as possible.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

BBD Board and Coaches
