Topeka, KS Senior Circuit Meet Oct. 9-10, 2021

Oct 9, 2021 - Oct 10, 2021
September, 24 2021

Description

See note below from meet hosts Patrick and Katie Norman of Ad Astra Area Aquatics.  Meet will now be in Topeka instead of Lawrence (a bit of a closer drive for us!), Sat-Sun Oct. 9-10.  We will need entries turned into the GOAL website by Sep. 24.  As soon as the Sun. PM (younger swimmers) meet info is available, we will forward that on to everyone and offer sign ups on our website for that.

 

Thank you all for being patient with us in releasing our event file and official meet info. We expect to offer a great meet this year and are excited to host all of you.
 
We will be running the meet in Topeka, KS at the Capitol Federal Natatorium. We believe this facility offers a better tank with recent facility upgrades (air handling system, blocks, etc) and space for athletes/spectators. Unfortunately, the scoreboard is being replaced, and will not be in use. Katie and I decided that in a no meet vs no scoreboard scenario - we would take the meet option. We are exploring options to fix this situation in the coming weeks. Restrictions in Lawrence prohibited us from running our usual quality meet like we would expect to offer visiting teams.
 
We will offer 5 sessions:
Saturday AM
Saturday Distance mid-day
Saturday PM
Sunday AM
Sunday Afternoon
 
We will also be offering a meet for all teams and their younger/novice athletes on Sunday PM as we look to maximize opportunities at this new location. We will move up our Saturday and Sunday AM warmup up times
to accommodate this format.  This new format is different from years past, however we feel our region is excited to race a variety of events including 50s of stroke and the 100IM.
 
We understand some of you may be disappointed we will not be in Lawrence - as we too love our hometown. However, this meet will continue to serve as one of our regions best early season opportunities to race. Thanks and see you all very soon.
 
Patrick and Katie
