    With nearly 1300 swimmers entered in the meet and long projected timelines, we will be dropping the sixth event.

    The 50s and 100s will be preseeded, with the oldest age groups first, slowest to fastest within each age group, men and women separate.

    The 200s will be deck seeded slowest to fastest by entry time, regardless of age (men and women separate).

    The 400 IMs will be deck seeded slowest to fastest by entry time, regardless of age (men and women separate).

    The 400, 800 and 1500 freestyles will be deck-seeded slowest to fastest by entry time, regardless of age, with men and women combined.

    I had a feeling the sixth event could be toast.

    Thanks for the quick work on the psych sheets!

    Meet Start Times

    The competition start time for all days of the meet has been changed to 7:30 a.m. due to expected long days of competition. Warm-ups in the competition pool will end at 7:20 a.m. to accommodate the earlier start time.

    What is the situation with regard to shade areas? Are there any grass areas where chairs and/or umbrellas will be allowed? Can a team bring a pop-up or is the only choice the rentals being offered? Thanks!

    Here is an interesting and surprising result. My friend, Kevin Cleary, won the 200 Fly in the 30-34 age group. He is a good flyer,so it is not too surprising, what is surprising is that he was the only one entered.

    that is not surprising in the 30-34 age group. At least, the heats weren't by age group in the 200 fly this year for that reason.
