To: Swimmers, Coaches  and Team Managers.


Many thanks for your entries. We have a great Meet planned and look forward to welcoming you to Crook Log in just over 2 weeks time. Please find attached the final confirmed entries by Club and then by swimmer. Please ask swimmers to check their entries and advise me of any errors in advance of the day. Mistakes are much easier to fix in advance.


The timings for the Meet have not altered and are now confirmed as follows:


Session 1.

Sign in opens at 7.45am, closes at 8.30am.

Warm up 8.30am to 9.30am – split into 4 x 15 minute sessions.

Session starts at 9.35am and finishes at 12.35pm.


Session 2.

Sign in opens at 12.15pm, closes at 1.00pm

Warm Up 1.00pm to 2.00pm – split into 4 x 15 minute sessions.

Session starts at 2.05pm and finishes at 4.50pm


There is ample free parking available at Crook Log and the Cafeteria will be open all day serving hot and cold food and drinks. The balcony at Crook Log is large and there will be plenty of seating available for spectators. We have a large number of swimmers taking part so the balcony will be busy and I ask that spectators do not reserve seats. The spectator entry fee is £3.00 per session or £5.00 for the day and this includes your Meet Programme.


Coach passes/packs will be available for collection on the day from the signing in tables. Please ask your Coaches to collect them from there. They are also welcome to come to the Officials room throughout the day for hot and cold drinks, breakfast and lunch.


Hire conditions at Crook Log dictate that large bags are not taken on to poolside. Swimmers should leave their large bags in the lockers provided and just bring a small bag containing their essential kit on to poolside. The lockers take a £1 coin and this is refunded.


As always, we would appreciate offers of help from your Club Officials. If you have qualified Officials who would be able to assist at either one or both sessions then please ask them to e-mail me and let me know.


We do have a Swim Shop coming along for the day – SRS Leisure – they sell a huge range of costumes and swimming equipment so this may be a good opportunity for you to purchase items that you need.


In a bid to keep things moving as quickly as possible, we will be adopting a slightly different approach in Backstroke events throughout the day. We will not be asking swimmers to clear the pool at the end of each race, instead we will ask the swimmers to hold the lane rope and stay in the corner of the lane whilst we get the next set of swimmers in and started. Once the race has started they should exit the pool by the side in the usual manner. Please ensure that swimmers are aware of this subtle change.


If you are a Team Manager, can you please forward this e-mail to your swimmers and coaches.


I do hope that I haven’t missed anything. If you do have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail: john@edsc.org.uk


Again and as always, thanks for your support and I look forward to seeing you all at the Meet.


Best Wishes,



John Burdett.

This gala is being run on a 'first come first served' basis so we would like to get our entries in before the Summer break to ensure that our swims are accepted.

If you'd like your swimmer to compete in this gala, the deadline for submitting both your entry form and payment to me is Friday 20th July 2018; please don’t leave it until the last minute!  As from Tuesday 1st May 2018, failure to make payment (at the latest) by the closing date, will see your swimmer removed and they will not be entered to swim.

  • 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.
