Fun and easy to do. Download the entry. Track your distance each workout for the month of June. (Convert short course to long course meters if necessary.) Send in the entry with your entry fee. Or get some buddies together and send in your entries as a group. T-shirts and Caps available. Shortest distance entered receives a special "Shark Bait" Award.

Do you think that enough people have access to a long course, to really make this work?

Did you see this line in the original post?

(Convert short course to long course meters if necessary.)

I read it two times and didn't see it. One must remember that () denotes sometine not important to the actual meaning of the sentence.

Hi Craig,

If you would like to swim in this event in a short course yard pool, you can use the conversion formula on the entry to convert the distance to meters. If you take a look at the entry, there is extra space for putting your yards total and converting it to meters. Most postal events are tallied in yards and people swimming meters have converted their distance to yards, so this event is only different in asking for the opposite.
Since some people have access to long course meters in the summer months only. And a lot of people have trouble getting 'pysch'ed up for long course season. We thought this event, recorded in meters would be motivating.
This event is not intended to be exclusive, anybody that has access to a pool, whether it be short course yards or meters or odd distances like 33 yards or 20 meters can enter. As long as you know your total distances for each day and can record them correctly, you should be good to go.

Hope that is more clear.

Does a 35 yard pool count?
