    Well you can pretty much rule out something from the water if coaches and parents are affected.

    I'm going to go with Legionnaires or Norovirus or food contamination if they possibly all ate from the same location.

    Legionnaires' makes me shudder----it almost killed my elderly father. Thank Heavens he has kept himself in top shape and he had an awesome doctor.

    We were in Annapolis this past weekend and many in our hotel were there for the swim meet. At breakfast early Sunday morning, many were complaining of being sick and the mom's pretty much boiled it down to those who had eaten at Panera.

    (My eavesdropping gave a very small sample size so it could have been something else entirely.)
