To: Swimmers

Many thanks for your entries. We have a great Meet planned and look forward to welcoming you to Crook Log in just under 3 weeks time. Please find attached the final confirmed entries by Club and then by swimmer. Swimmers should check their entries and advise me of any errors in advance of the day. Mistakes are much easier to fix in advance.

Please note that Session 1 and 4 are SIGN OUT. All other sessions are SIGN IN. Anyone wishing to withdraw from events in Sessions 1 and 4 should do so by e-mailing me – john@edsc.org.uk – by 6pm on the evening before the event. I do have a waiting list of swimmers wanting to take up any space that becomes available so please give them the chance to participate if you don’t plan to do so. 

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 £4.00 per session or £6.00 per day and this includes your Meet Programme. We will also be running a raffle on both days. Wristbands will be issued to all spectators. 

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 each time you open the locker. 

We do hope to have a Swim Shop coming along for the weekend – 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. 

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 several sessions then please ask them to e-mail me and let me know. 

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. 

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

John Burdett.

Promoter.

Conditions, Schedule & Qualifying Times

Entry Form for Beckenham SC Swimmers -    MS Word /    PDF

 

This is a licensed Level 3 Gala with Lower & Upper Qualifying Times - so 2 things to note:

  1. If your swimmer is faster than a qualifying time, you can only enter them as a Time Trial which prevents them from being placed or receiving medals
  2. If your swimmer does not have a time for a any of the 50m or 100m events you can enter (just put NT where the entry time should be).  This does not apply to any 200m, 400m, 800m or 1500m events - you will need entry times for these events.

 

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.  Note this is an 'age on day' gala for swimmers aged 9 & over on 3rd November 2019.

This gala is 'first come first served' hence we would like to get our entries in before the end of the season.  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 26th July 2019; please don’t leave it until the last minute!  Failure to make payment (at the latest) by the closing date, will see your swimmer removed and they will not be entered to swim.

Entries & payment details should be submitted either via:
•    email to
sharonmcspadden@talk21.com or 
•    post to Sharon McSpadden, 27 Scotts Lane, Bromley, BR2 0LL.

 

PAYMENT

  • Cheques should be made payable to Beckenham Swimming Club (not BSC) & please include the swimmer's name and 'FM19' on the back.
  • If you are paying by bank transfer, please use the following Account (Sort Code 600212, Account 53746031) and use FM19+Swimmer Surname as the Reference.
  • In addition, please remember to include the £4 admin fee per swimmer / per gala (this is included on the entry form) as detailed in the AGM papers sent out on 20 June 2019.

I look forward to receiving your entries.

Kind regards
Sharon McSpadden
