Host: Warrenton Masters Swim Team, Warrenton, VA   Meet Director: Charlie Tupitza

Sanction: for VA LMSC 123-S007.

Objective: To promote health, wellness, fitness and competition for adults through swimming.

Goal: Promote alternative stroke swims of butterfly, backstroke and breaststroke for distance events. Encourage swimmers to have fun and participate in unique events that challenge them to do something they thought they couldn’t.

Location:   This is a postal event. A venue is not provided. Pool Events may be swum in any 25-yard, or 25m short course pool during a swim meet, practice, or on your own with someone on the deck. See Rules below for more requirements.  Open water swims must only be swum in separately sanctioned USMS or FINA events for your safety and recognized in this postal event.

Eligibility: Participants must be registered with USMS (or the equivalent FINA organization for foreign swimmers) on the day of their swim. Online entries for USMS members will be verified automatically. Foreign swimmers must submit an electronic copy of their equivalent organization registration card to the director prior to swimming. 

Meet Web Site: www.swimflyfast.com  Swims completed prior to registration are ineligible for this postal event.

Awards: Anyone that sets an Unofficial, Non-conforming,  Unsanctioned World Record along the way will receive an Official Proclamation from the Mayor of Warrenton VA, the Honorable George B Fitch (co-founder of the Jamaican Bobsled Team 1988 Olympics). All records will be saved and listed on our site. Register early for your chance to be part of swimming history. As time goes on records will be tougher to break. At the conclusion of the event a special recognition award will be given to the top ten swimmers in each individual event and top six relays. Example: if Sally swims the fastest time to date in her age group she will get a proclamation. If Mary swims faster the next day she will get one too.

Individual Events: Men and women age groups of five-year increments: 18-24, 25-29, 30-34,…100+. Your age on Oct 15, 2013 will determine your age group. A swimmer may compete in no more than five individual events per day.

Relay Splits: Individual splits may be also entered as individual event times for swimmers that are still when previous swimmer touches. Why? We want to promote team activity. Timer must certify that swimmer is still for split.

Relay Events: Relay events will be contested as mixed 3 person teams (2 men, 1 woman or 1 man 2 women). You may swim with people from other USMS teams or unattached members. The total ages of your three swimmers determines the team age group example: 54- 74, 75- 89, 90- 104, 105- 119, 120- 134, 135- 149……. Age will be determined by your age on August 29, 2013. You may swim in as many relays as you wish, even relays of the same event but different people. 

Result Submissions: All results must be submitted by 11:59PM PST on September 15, 2014. Send your results in as you swim to have the chance to be an unofficial, nonconforming, and unrecognized record holder. You may swim each event as many times as you want. Keep improving. Event results are sent in electronically via e-mail.
