Meet Director Note:

1. As in years past we will have a Culligan cooler available in the hospitality area to refill water bottles.
2. In hopes of providing a better experience for all we will be asking parents/spectators to stay off of "deck" area. The spectator rope will extend from the north side of the diving well all the way to our concessions tent. This also allows our timers the space needed when at the turn end of the pool for 50's. I am asking your help to please pass on to your families to help respect this for a pleasurable environment for all. The attached map shows Athlete & Spectator entrances and where we will be roping off as well.
To clarify we will NOT be checking credentials this weekend.
3. There is quite a bit of construction going on. If you don't know there is 1 lane traffic on HWY 169. HWY 14 also has construction, the exit ramps at Riverfront Dr are closed. Please inform your families they will want to plan ahead and leave extra time for traveling.
4. Lastly, the Tourtellotte Pool WILL be open during a portion of the day. They will be closing early to allow us the facility. Turning this turn-over period we are asking everyone BUT Mantas remain OFF deck until 4:30. At that time we will allow others on deck and teams to set up tents. While waiting for deck entrance please help us to set up and avoid blocking the gate in any way we will be bringing vehicles and large equipment through that way.
