Another year, another May Flowers meet. This annual SR Long Course kick-off meet is a long standing tradition for the BCST as it provides an opportunity for our older swimmers to re-learn how to race in a 50 meter pool.
The swims ranged from tarnished to rusty to downright corroded, but this was to be expected. The change in racing strategy from SCY to LCM is quite drastic, and it will take some time for the swimmers to fully acclimate. Heavy training and practices suits did not help either.
The May flowers meet was once again a tremendous success thanks to the incredible effort of the BCST Boosters and all the parent volunteers. Special thanks to Deb Keane and Marianne Kersten and their facilitation of the new format we installed this year. The reviews from other clubs were all very positive.
