This is the second State Championship Masters Swim Meet held at the Lake Orion Natatorium.
 
FACILITIES:
Lake Orion Natatorium is a 25-yard, 11-lane pool; 8 lanes are used for competition. A separate 4-lane pool will be available for warm-up/cool down during all of the events. Depth at the start is 7 feet and 9-13 feet at the turn. Permanent starting blocks and non-turbulent lane markers will be used. Swimmers must enter the water feet first in a cautious manner during all warm-ups/cool downs. Diving is permitted only in the designated sprint lanes. Lockers are available and you must bring your own lock. There is ample balcony seating for swimmers and spectators.
 
RULES - ELIGIBILITY:
USMS rules apply and will be observed. Any swimmer who is not USMS registered for 2012 by the State Meet entry deadline will NOT BE ALLOWED TO SWIM IN THE MEET.
 
A swimmer not registered with Michigan LMSC cannot establish a Michigan State Record. Any swimmer registered in the meet CAN set a MEET championship.
 
TIMING:
Timing system is a Colorado system with electronic and manual back-up with an 8-lane display scoreboard with start and recall. All events (except some heats of the distance events) will be timed using this system. Manual back-up timers will be provided at each lane. Swimmers are encouraged to hit the pad firmly and, when swimming in relays, to remain clear of the finish area until the event is completed by all swimmers. Any swimmer or relay attempting a NATIONAL RECORD should alert the Starter and make sure there are the required three manual timers as backup. Swimmers are required to supply their own lap counting personnel in distance events.
