View Full Version : Indy check-in

April 3rd, 2004, 11:27 AM
Just making sure I have this right....I DO NOT need to get to the pool a day ahead to check-in after all? I am only swimming 50's, 100's and 200's.

If it is like last year, you do need to check in a day ahead of time. You can do it in person, online, or have a trustworthy team member do it for you.

If you search your name on the meet roster, you'll get a list of the events you're entered in -- next to each event, it says whether or not check in is required. (Events 200 yards and under all say that check-in is NOT required; those over 200 say it is.)

I thought, from what I read recently, that they were pre-seeding all 200's and less therefore no check-in. Everything else check in.

My 200 IM lists that I don't require check in, so you are right Karen. This differs from the meet information that says you have to check in. Maybe the timeline is such that they don't need to have a check in.

Speaking of a timeline, will they post one?

They did in Arizona, but anytime the power failed on deck, they fell behind schedule. :) If you have the patience, just wait for the heat sheets to come out. You take the slowest time in each heat, add about 20 seconds for between-heat stuff, and "presto", instant time-line. :D

yep, I run our age group club's meets(AKA the computer guru on the team).

The power went out in Arizona, what a nightmare for the folks running the meet! It was outside, right? Outside meets are always a challenge to run! I haven't seen that happen at the Nat, tornadoes, fire alarms, but no power outage.

I've been to several meets at IUPUI, and those folks really know what they're doing. I think every time they've actually been ahead of the timeline. Expect a well run, very efficient meet!

Just to confirm the answers to the original question:

There is NO event check-in required for individual events of 200 yards or less. These events will be pre-seeded with the heat sheets available in the program you receive when you register at the meet.

For events over 200 yards (400 IM, 500, 1000, and 1650 free), you WILL need to check in for each event. The meet program will include psych sheets for these events and heat sheets will be made available at the pool on the day of the event. The check-in times for the 400 IM and 500 free will be 6:30 AM to 4 PM THE DAY BEFORE the event. Check-in for the 1000 and 1650 will be available at the pool on Wednesday from noon to 7 PM and on Thursday morning until 7 AM. The deadline for the 1650 check-in on Thursday will actually be later than 7 AM, and will be announced once our estimated timeline is available.

On line check-in is available for all individual events that require check-in at the same times that on-deck check-in is available.

The estimated meet timeline will be available here once it has been finalized.

Hey, Mel
When will the decision about the 6th event be announced?

April 9th, 2004, 09:11 AM

I believe that announcement has already been made. The sixth event remains.

Hey, Meg

Thanx for the quick reply. Now I have two questions on the subject.

1). Where is it written that the decision has been made?
I have been searching hours for the announcement.

2). Is the sixth event remaining on or remaining off? Or more simply, are those of us who signed up for six gonna swim six or five. For some of us it means arriving a day earlier or later and travel arrangements could be affected.

Hey, Fritz. Thanx. That's what I was afraid of. Now I've got to find a counter for the Thousand Free!!!
