USMS Disclaimer: The length of the competition course is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 107.2.1, but as a bulkhead course, is subject to length confirmation. Eligibility of times for USMS Top 10 and Records will be contingent on verification of bulkhead placement. We take this matter seriously, and make sure to measure before and after each session. There have been National Records set at previous EEX Masters Meets, so we are accustomed to the protocol and follow it exactly.
