We must have the pool turned over and ready to go by 5pm, so clean up will need to be going on during the last hour of the meet.
The meet will be run on deck as a 9 event meet, but will be scored on the computer for each age group separately. The Clerk of Course will organize the heats by age and gender when possible, but we will attempt to avoid empty lanes in order to keep things moving.
The 9 event plan is:
Freestyle Event 1 25 m
Event 2 50 m
Backstroke Event 3 25 m
Event 4 50 m
Breaststroke Event 5 25m
Event 6 50m
Butterfly Event 7 25m
Event 8 50 m
IM Event 9 100 m (If time permits)
Parking in the lot adjacent to the Commons Pool and Community Center will be reserved for the Penguins. The Team Rep, Coach, and Computer person will each have a spot reserved. Please remind your families to park at the VRE once the upper lot is filled. Parking on the road could result in a ticket.
The Penguins Team area will be the grassy area near the picnic tables. Stingers team area will be the area surrounding the baby pool.
Time Trial Event Sign Up will end Friday, June 7, by 5:00pm..
