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