NOTE THERE IS NO 100m IM at this gala - the entry form has been amended!

Please find attached the entry details relating to the Black Lion Regional Open Meet (L3) taking place on Saturday 7th April 2018 at Medway Park, Gillingham.  Note this is 1 of 2 Black Lion Swimming Club galas that we will be attending - the next will be issued shortly.

This is a licensed Level 3 Gala with Upper & Lower Qualifying Times – this means you can enter any event as long as you have a licensed time that falls within the Upper and Lower Limit provided.  HOWEVER, anyone whose time falls outside of these limits can swim as a time trial if the event is not oversubscribed.  If the event is oversubscribed, time trials entries followed by the slowest entrants to some events will be rejected to keep the meet within acceptable time limits.

Please read the conditions carefully before entering your child, making sure you are entering events that are open to them & if needs be speak with your coach.

If you'd like your child to compete in this gala, please either email or post your entries back to me by Monday 5th March as follows: email to lindseydavison@btinternet.com / post to Lindsey Davison, 43 Oakwood Avenue, Beckenham, BR3 6PT.


In line with the new Gala Entry Procedure please return your entries and agree the amount that you need to pay with me before the deadline date (the earlier the better!). 

  • Cheques should be made payable to Beckenham Swimming Club (not BSC) & please include the swimmer's name and 'BLRO18' on the back.  
  • If you are paying by bank transfer, please REMEMBER TO USE THE NEW ACCOUNT (Sort Code: 60-02-12, Account 53746031), and please use BLRO18+Swimmer Surname as the reference.
  • In addition, as per the AGM documentation, the Club has introduced a £1 admin fee per swimmer/per gala to cover incremental bank fees so please can you add the extra £1 onto your payment (this is included on the entry form) per swimmer. 

I look forward to receiving your entries.

If anyone is able to officiate on the day please let me know or fill in the form attached with the Conditions.
