Event:  1500 Meter Freestyle starting in the water. This has been a fun meet for intermediate swimmers. Three watch times will be used.

Pool:   This is a shallow 50M pool without starting blocks. The lane markings are blue and blend in with the pool bottom and sides.  A hockey puck will help locate the T.  The length of the competition course without a bulkhead is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 107.2 and therefore swims are eligible for Top 10 times. Swimmers wishing for top 10 or records should arrange for two additional timers.

Full pool warmup before the first heat and and from 7:45-8:00AM.  There is a half lane that will be open throughout the meet for warmup/cooldown.  If there is a large demand for early heats we may open at 5:30 with first heat at 6:00, see heat sheet posted on website.
