Rising Stars Meet 2018

Sunday 18th November 2018
The Spa, Beckenham

 
A huge thank you to all the Clubs that are supporting our Rising Stars 2018 meet.  We are really looking forward to welcoming you and to celebrate our 125th Anniversary!  Ellen Kokkini and Hayley Williamson will be running the Gala on the day itself and will be giving out a few celebratory spot prizes so keep your eyes peeled!

Sign In
For the morning Session, this will be located in the Buzz-zone and will be open from 7.30am.  The afternoon Session sign in will be in the main foyer of The Spa itself and will open from 10am until closing at 12.30pm.

Time Trials
Thank you to those swimmers who have requested time trials.  We will now not be accepting any more requests for time trials .

Urgent Request for Officials
Thank you to all those who have already volunteered to officiate on Sunday.  However, we are still short of officials to uphold our licensing requirements on the day.  Please can you send out another request to your clubs for more officials to help out on the day and advise David Ziwa of the details ASAP.

The Spa
Please note that there will be limited seating and refreshments available throughout the gala. The Spa informed us this week that they will be completely refurbishing the Cafeteria and as such there will be no refreshments or seating available in this area as in the past. This is a truly regrettable situation but one which was completely out of our control.
Our amazing gala volunteers will be staffing a 'tuck shop' on the day itself from gallery on poolside but please be advised this will be a very limited service.

Parking at The Spa
The limit on parking at The Spa is normally 4 hours. Bromley Council have granted our request that anyone who buys a 4-hour ticket will be able to park all day. This will NOT apply to a ticket that is bought via Ring-go.  

Coach packs / Poolside Passes
All coach packs will be available from the Medals table just above poolside. Anyone who has not applied & paid for a Poolside Pass will not be allowed on poolside.

Spectator Entry
Spectator Entry will be by colour-coded wristbands.  Entry fees are £4 per session / £6 per day.  If only attending the morning session £6 will be charged, however, on return of your wristband and before the start of the afternoon session a £2 refund will be given.  Children under the age of 10 will gain entry for free.

Programmes
These will be available to buy at a cost of £2. 
The age as at date in the Programme is wrong and should read 18/11/18.

For any queries, please email openmeets@beckenhamswimmingclub.com

We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday!
