We are looking forward to welcoming clubs & swimmers to Cardiff and preparations are underway for next month’s Tiger Bay Open Meet.

Unfortunately we are going to have to cancel the Friday night session and move e101 & e102 400m freestyle into the weekend sessions.

The decision has been made following consultation with the Lead Ref/Officials co-ordinator and Legacy Leisure.  With just 48 girls & 19 boys entered these events are under subscribed and it is unlikely we will have enough officials available. Without sufficient officials any results will not be accepted by Rankings.

I apologise for having to make this late change to the gala and appreciate parents/swimmers have already made their weekend plans.

Attached is the list of swimmers and I hope all can accept/enter the revised session times which will be:

SATURDAY
E102 Boys 400m Freestyle will be run in SESSION TWO after e203 (at approx 11 am)

SUNDAY
E101 Girls 400m Freestyle will be run in SESSION SEVEN after e704 (at aprox 3:50 pm)

PLEASE CONFIRM BY 5 PM WED 28 FEB that you can accept this change and which session you can move to.

Girls – if you are unable to swim on the alternative Sunday session, then provided we have at least 8 entrants I might look to run additional heats on Saturday after the boys 400 heats session 2- but obviously the results will not be declared until completion of Sun heats).

The Friday Para Swimmer classification event is not affected and will run as planned from 8:30am-5:30pm.

Once again I am sorry for these changes to the event schedule.
