Does anyone have a "ballpark" time as to when Saturdays session might end? I just need a rough estimation.

Thanks!

Saturday is the longest day. Preliminary estimates have it ending around 6 pm.

What about Sunday - approximately what time will the meet be over that day (need to book my flight)?

Thanks!

Anyone know when the preliminary timeline will be published? Trying to coordinate an add-on trip while I'm on the east coast.

Where are you thinking about going?Nothing too exciting -- crashing my younger sisters 40th birthday party in Hilton Head Saturday night, but I want this ideal scenario where I still swim the 100 free, get on a flight and arrive in SC by 7pm. Probably not gonna happen..

Nice trip. My parents were just there 2 weekends ago. They live in Atl and had time so they drove to meet some friends who were there on vacation.

The estimated time line (http://www.usms.org/comp/scnats10/timeline.pdf) and heat sheets (http://www.usms.org/comp/scnats10/heats/) for all pre-seeded events are now available. All events 200 yards and shorter have been pre-seeded. Swimmers entered in events longer than 200 yards will need to positively check in for those events at the facility or via the online check-in system (http://www.usms.org/comp/scnats10/heats/checkin.php).

The time line is only an estimate and the actual progress of the meet may run faster or slower. All swimmers are responsible for showing up for their assigned heat/lane for each event regardless of the time that heat goes off.

Jim,

Thanks for exceeding expectations on publishing the timeline. also, the meet looks like it will finish at quite a reasonable hour; 10 lane pools make a huge difference.

Jim-
Is the meet going to be conducted in two pools? If so, how will the heats be divided? I had assumed it would be men / women - but the time line looks like the men/women events will be run consecutively.

There are two 10 lane courses in the pool. The odd heats will be run in one course and the event heats in the other course.

I'm in lane 1 for one even and lane 10 for another but you know what - I just did a meet where I was in the outside lanes for 3 of my 6 events and I had personal bests. Swim fast, no matter the lane.....

Thanks for getting the timeline out. It's nice to see when the days will end.

You know the Tech pool, Jeff. There really is no "bad" lane. The only negative is that if you're a one-sided breather (like I am) you'll only see your competition half the time. :)

I'm near the outside in most of my events, and I'm going to look at it as a positive -- there will be faster people to push me. And the way you're swimming right now, I'll bet you move way up in finish position within your heat! :)

Oh, I'm just being a baby about it....its two of my lesser events anyway. I actually have done some of my lifetime best swims as an age grouper in lane 1 or lane 10....no worries. If I swim my own race I'll have blinders on anyway.

Does this timeline confirm, then, that the heats for the 1000 and the 1650 will be mixed heats of men and women?

The time line for Thursday assumes that women and men will be seeded together. Not doing so would result in the meet lasting about 40 minutes longer on Thursday.

I see that it assumes so; my question is, will they?

I would like to know sooner than the morning of the race if possible, because by my rough calculation I would swim about an hour later with mixed heats than I would with single-sex heats.

Yes, women and men will be seeded together for the 1000 and 1650 Free.

Barry -

Do you know why the men's 400 IM starts 45 minutes after the women in the timeline?

This year the women swim first in all pre-seeded events and in the 400 IM with the odd heats in one 10-lane course and the even heats in the other 10-lane course. Then the men get to swim.
