Meet begins PROMPTLY at 7:15am
We need help setting up at 8:30pm TONIGHT at the pool. Bonus: You can bring your tents and chairs to set up in the morning outside the fence.
We NEED people to step up and help NOW:
- Bullpen Worker (2 first and 3 second half)
- Raffle Station (2 second half)
- 1 clean up/break down volunteers
- 2 Officials
- Runner (1 second half)
- Timer (4 second half)
Note: All 11 and over events will have flyover starts. That means when your race is done (except in backstroke) you stay in the water and the next heat will dive over you.
Timers: 2nd half timers, we ask that you are ready to go by event 32. You will wait at the shallow end of the pool in a lane ready to relieve the first half timer when they switch over for 25 backstroke (event #35). We cannot have any delay in switching timers.
First half timers be prepared to stay as we will continue the meet if your replacement is not there yet. We will find someone for you. We will not stop to hand off and make an official switch.
Camps: Huntington Hills and Pickerington will set up Camps outside the gate by the diving well. Chevington Woods will be located in the upper parking lot. There will be no camps inside the fence. Tents are allowed but MUST be 7ft apart and Anchored down. We ask that parents and swimmers not congregate in and around the pool deck if they are not swimmer/watching their swimmer). This will help keep capacity numbers down.
Parking: The upper lot will be used for Chevington Woods' camp, so parking is available in the lower lot. Overflow is at the Sherman Center (near Zapatas). There will be parking attendants to guide you. If you park on Stonecreek Drive, please DO NOT block people's driveways. No parking on the grass.
Bullpen Numbers: Will be posted by the diving well and by the front entrance. Huntington Hills has set up a Remind (team can text @h34bc8 to 81010 to join in advance) to get an up to date status of what event we are on and what swimmers should be in the bullpen.
Concessions: No need to pack snacks!
A warm Bob Evans breakfast and coffee will be available. Drinks, snacks, fruit bowls, hot dogs and pulled chicken sandwiches will also be available. The concession stand will be located under the blue awning at the front entrance of the pool. (cash and venmo - @PTSSWIM)

Attached to this email is an Individual Entries file and also the Heat Sheet for the meet. Please note there are combined events.
Feel free to print out your own copy. We will NOT be selling heat sheets.
It is important to mark up your swimmer with their events, heats and lane so they know where they are supposed to be and when. I uploaded a video to explain heat sheets, marking up your swimmer and writing swimmer's name on their back in sharpie.
See you all tomorrow at the Pickerington Pool. Please check in with our junior coaches when you arrive. Volunteers, please check in right at the table when you walk in!
Go Tiger Sharks!
