From PSCT Coach Brian:

I have attached the meet invitation for the 2020 Speedo Beach Blast September 25-27 in Panama City Beach.  We are fortunate to have a large outdoor facility which will allow us to run a fun and safe event.  We have made a few adjustments in order to comply with Covid-19 guidelines. We have run two events in the past few weeks with 200 people inside the facility and have had no issues.  Our capacity has been set at 250 inside the facility.  Please read through the following notes and let me know if you have any questions.
1) We have split the meet into more sessions based on age groups.  No more than 150 swimmers per session but ideally the session would be about 125 swimmers.  Friday session will be 13&Over.  The rest of the meet, sessions will be split into 15&Over, 13-14, 11-12, and 10&Under.  10&Under swimmers will only have one session in the meet (Saturday evening).  The general idea is for each session to have a 40 minute warmup and a 2 hour session.  We will have 10 lanes of warmdown available during the meet.
2) In order to control the numbers allowed inside the facility, we will only allow parents to enter the facility if they sign up as a volunteer.  Parents from all teams will be allowed to volunteer via a signup genius page which will go live on Friday September 18 (link provided after entries received).  We hope to have two groups of timers and runners thus allowing volunteers to only have to work half of the session and simply be spectators the other half.  We will also have volunteers allotted to each team to monitor their team's social distancing.  
3) Spectators who are not able to access the facility due to capacity being met will be allowed to view the meet from outside the chain link fence with direct line of sight to the pool.
4) After entries have been received, I will host a zoom call for all attending coaches to go over any details on the setup of the pool, etc...
