 Hi all,

Please find the meet information for this weekend's NES 10 and Under Challenge.  The  meet is being conducted in SCY at the Greenwood Memorial Pool in Gardner, MA.  Many of your athletes attended the meet we had there in June and had a fun and fast time.  The pool and facility are outdoors with plenty of space and should provide a fun end of atmosphere for the kids.
Saturday AM (June 24) - Girls Session:
On deck time is at 8:40am.  Meet starts at 10:00am.
Saturday PM (June 24) - Boys Session:
On deck time is at 1:40pm.  Meet starts at 3:00pm.
Sunday AM (June 25) - Girls Session:
On deck time is at 8:40am.  Meet starts at 10:00am.
Sunday PM (June 25) - Boys Session:
On deck time is at 1:20pm.  Meet starts at 2:45pm.
***where this meet is general warm up it is REALLY important that your athlete is present for the on deck time.  This meet is very large - hence why it was separated by gender - and gaining some space for tents and the kids is going to be paramount.  Additionally, claiming some warm up lane space is also important**
Saturday attire: Navy PHX Shirt
Sunday attire: Character Wins Shirt/Choice if you don't have that shirt
**Please know that acquiring attire has been difficult this year.  As we have mentioned in other emails we have had to change our vendor as they went out of business during covid.  We fully expect to have a full stock of items come September - but for now, its not a big deal if you do not have the attire listed - just wear whatever PHX shirt you do have.**

Timing Assignments:
Saturday AM (Girls Session) - we have one timing assignment - (Story, Lin, Vigo Catala)
Sunday AM (Girls Session) - we have on\e timing assignment - (Thompson, Kojokaro)
On both of these days there is a mandatory timers meeting at 9:30am.  Additionally, please note that I have listed names of athletes that will be at these sessions.  Please divvy up timing responsibilities so that everyone is working an equal amount of time.  While I do not mind assigning events at a larger meet it should not be difficult to manage this by either events or time spent behind the blocks timing between a few people.  If you anticipate this being an issue please let me know.
