Welcome to the 2011 Colonies Zone Short Course Yards Championship meet.  The swimming facility will be configured as two separate 8-lane competition courses, women in one course and men in the other, with both courses displayed on the scoreboard.  The all deep-water lanes, overflow gutters and non-turbulent lane lines should allow for some very fast swimming!   A separate 6-lane 25-yard pool will be available for continuous warm-up/cool-down throughout the meet.

ENTRIES:  Online entries are preferred.
Online entry DEADLINE HAS BEEN  EXTENDED to MONDAY APRIL 11. Paper entries must be postmarked by Friday April 1.  Competitors may enter up to 5 individual events per day, plus relays.  $20 meet surcharge + $5 per event.  The meet is open to all Masters Swimmers holding a valid 2011 USMS registration card.  A COPY OF THIS CARD MUST ACCOMPANY YOUR MAILED ENTRY!  Age is determined by a swimmer’s age on April 17, 2011. 2011 USMS rules and regulations apply.

SEEDING:  Events will be seeded slowest to fastest. Women will swim in the shallow end on Saturday and the deep end on Sunday. Men will swim in the deep end on Saturday and the shallow end on Sunday. The 1000 and 1650 free will be seeded fastest to slowest, men and women combined. 

RELAYS:  Relay Deck Entries will be accepted BEFORE 10am Saturday and Sunday, or Friday night, or they may be mailed in with your meet entry.  Relay Entry Forms are available at http://www.patriotmasters.org/ColoniesZone2011.htm.
 
DISTANCE EVENTS:  Choose either the 1000 free or the 1650, not both.  The 1000 is limited to the first 80 entries received and will be swum in the deep end. The 1650 is limited to the first 48 entries received and will be swum in the shallow end. Please ask a friend to count for you in the distance freestyle races.  You must check in Friday night BEFORE 5:30pm for the 1000/1650 or you will be scratched.
