View Full Version : Don't Have Counter for 1000 Free

April 8th, 2009, 05:29 PM
I've entered the 1000 free at Nationals but won't be traveling to Clovis with my wife or family. I also don't have any teammates participating.

Does anyone know if there are counters in the volunteer crew? If not, I was maybe going to look for a teenager that I could pay $20 to count for me. But realizing the distance free events are on a Thursday, all such kids are going to be in school.

I imagine if you ask around at the meet, you can find a friendly person to do so (for free).

I have to be there on Thursday, but I'm not swimming until Friday. If you don't have a counter, I'll count for you. Contact me via PM and we'll arrange to meet up somehow.

Gordon - and other swimmers...

Chris Colburn heads up a team of "On Deck Coaches" at nationals for swimmers to call on for help if they don't have a coach of their own attending.
I'm sure the team of coaches can help if there is a problem finding a counter.

I'll be there on deck for distance day as a coach - not swimming until the next day - the same as Jim.
So no worries, someone will help you out.
