Aquae Sulis Autumn Level 2 Meet 2016
Please see the draft entry list.
I would be grateful if you could check your entries carefully – one or two have changed where we have had new times submitted by parents (or in the odd case we checked the ASA rankings and found an error). For some clubs, we have had additional entries on paper – so these may not be on your system. Note – there are no scratches, other than a very few where swimmers did not meet qualifying times – these were notified as entries were processed, so there is no separate list of scratches. If you have not had an earlier such notification, then all your entries have been included.
Can you please let me have any corrections by email no later than Saturday 12th (close of play – I am at the Arena League in the afternoon). You may include any omissions (we all make mistakes), and I will confirm separately whether we have managed to accommodate them. Clearly, where we have made an error, we will allow the correction.
For the Long Distance, please notify of any withdrawals at this point. Please also note, looking at numbers we are just beyond an exact amount of swimmers for an efficient number of heats.. I now plan to operate a sign in system for the Long Distance Events on the Friday. Sign in will close 5 minutes after the start of warm-up. By way of contingency, in case anyone is stuck in traffic, they should text me before 6.05 on 07411 571033, or better still, get their coach to let the sign in desk know. Any swimmer not signed in will be withdrawn.
Sign in will not be required for other sessions.
Note – the planned session end times allow for things like a timing pad needing changing. We should if all runs well finish a few minutes earlier each day.
Finally, I am sure you are tired of being hassled, but we are still short of officials on every session – woefully so for the Friday night and to a slightly lesser extent, Sunday last session. These sessions cannot run if we do not close the gap. If you can find any more officials who fancy a nice weekend in Bristol, with a free lunch, please let me know.
