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 on Sunday. We will also be running a raffle
on both days.
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
weekend for hot and cold drinks, breakfast and lunch.

In a bid
to keep things moving as quickly as possible, we will be adopting a
slightly different approach in Backstroke events throughout the
weekend. 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
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:firstname.lastname@example.org
as always, thanks for your support and I look forward to seeing you
all at the Meet.
