Many thanks for your entries. We have a great Meet planned and look forward to welcoming you to Crook Log in just under 4 weeks time. Please find attached the final confirmed entries by Club and then by swimmer. Please check your entries and advise me of any errors in advance of the day by replying to this e-mail. Mistakes are much easier to fix in advance.

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. We will also be running a raffle on both days.

 

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.

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.

 

As always, we would appreciate offers of help from your Club Officials. If you have qualified Officials who would be able to assist at any session then please ask them to e-mail me and let me know. Additionally, we hope to be able to offer opportunities for mentoring trainees so again, please ask anybody interested to contact me.

 

If you are a Team Manager, can you please forward this e-mail to your swimmers and coaches as it contains essential information for the smooth running of the Meet.

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
