The annual Lincoln Invitational is just over a week away! And it’s going to be an exciting one!
Last year, we formally dedicated the meet as our first annual alumni meet. We’re still inviting all of our Lincoln Swimming alums to come back for the annual alumni meet and cheer on the latest class of swimmers. Plus, we’ll be inviting our club families and other supporters to come out too.
But this year we’ve also added a new charitable focus to the meet, branding it as PINK IN THE POOL. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Iowa chapter of the Susan G. Koman Foundation for breast cancer research and treatments.
All competitors will receive a free PINK IN THE POOL swim cap to wear during the meet.
Meanwhile, all fans attending the meet will have the chance to win various prizes! Here’s a hint – there’s more than one prize this year! More details on the prizes and raffle rules below.
Diving will begin at 8:45 a.m.
Swimming will begin at 11:30 a.m.
The diving portion of the meet is free and the swimming portion’s admission is only $5/adult and $3/children.

Full Raffle Details
Each fan coming to the swimming portion of the meet will receive one free raffle ticket. EX: Family of four comes to the meet, four tickets are given at the door to that family. Lincoln Swimming alums wearing old LHS team apparel will receive an extra free ticket at the door. We’d love to see those vintage team t-shirts or sweatshirts! It doesn’t matter if it’s from 2007 or 1977, wear it and get a free raffle ticket.
Better your chances of winning by buying additional tickets for $2/ticket or $5 for 4 tickets.
Receive two free tickets when you buy a PINK IN THE POOL T-shirt. They are $12 a shirt. EX: If you buy 4 T-shirts, then you’ll receive a total of 8 raffle tickets.
Write your name and phone number on each ticket so we can contact you if you win. Please write clearly. Illegible tickets will be discarded and a new winner drawn.
The raffles will be open until the athletic office staff working at the door leaves. This is about 2 hours.
The raffles will be drawn after the meet. However, not necessarily immediately following. We need to clean up, print results, hand out medals, etc. We will try to draw a winner as soon as we can.
We’ll call the winners immediately after drawing.
You are o
nly eligible to win one prize. If we draw your name for a prize and it’s drawn again for another, we’ll draw a new name.
Each winner will have 24 hours to contact us (if we have to leave a message) to claim their prize. Otherwise, we’ll draw a new winner.
Raffle prizes will be mailed out the week following the LHS Invite.
It’s a big meet for the team as they aim to win it for the second consecutive year. With seven teams attending the Invite, we’d love to pack the stands with maroon and gold! Especially with Lincoln Swimming donating money towards a good cause, we’d love for it to be a full house.
So come on out, show your LHS pride, and see what a fun and exciting atmosphere a high school meet can be. Maybe you’ll even win a prize! All while making a difference here in Iowa!
We plan to continue to do something each year to make the invite a meet every Rails Swimming fan will want to see, year after year. Go Rails!
