The preliminary psych sheet for the entire meet and the sessions reports (timeline).
We would like to do "over the top" starts to keep the meet moving. I will make sure timers have sufficient stop watches to facilitate this. This timeline will not allow us to look for swimmers that are not prepared to swim for their heat. Please make sure your swimmers know where they need to be. The younger swimmers tend to get distracted in the lazy river :0)
Since we are not printing programs, I will postpone seeding the meet until the last possible moment. The heat sheets will be available on Meet Mobile.
Aspen is not longer accepting entries to their October meet. They have exceeded their entry limits.
Colorado Swimming is pleased to announce clinics to be presented at this year's Swimposium. The Swimposium will be held on Saturday, October 10th, 2015 at the Ramada Inn in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. (124 W. 6th Street, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601)
The following officials' clinics will be held:
- Stroke and Turn - come learn about the new rules interpretation of the freestyle pullout in the IM events from Bryan Carr and Steve Pope.
- Starter - Robert Scandary and Kevin Curry will show us techniques to use in providing swimmers with their absolute best starts!
- Deck Referee - Are you new to this position? Or just want to learn more about how to advance in your role? Come discuss and hear Lee Lierz and Terry Kidd present this position.
- Admin Official - interested in the "dry" side of swimming? Learn how to become an administrative official (get the best seat in the house!) from Linda Eaton and Dale Ammon.
All of these clinics will be held from 1:00 - 3:30 in different conference rooms.
At 3:30, all officials are invited to dialogue with Kathleen Scandary and Scott Powell on the role of the Chief Judge. This position is not used very often, but is extremely important when running a larger meet. Kathleen and Scott will share their insights and wisdom.
We hope to see you all there!
We ask all teams please send a couple of people to the Colorado Swimming House of Delegates Meeting. It is being held on the Western Slope in Glenwood Springs on Sunday, October 11th at 9:00am. Our WSL meeting will be held right after this meeting.

We look forward to seeing you all in Grand Junction this weekend!
Attached are the psych sheets for both the 8 & Under session and the LCM meet. I will seed the meet on Thursday afternoon.
Please note that even though the 50 events do not have time qualifications, they must still have a time to enter that event. Please review the psych sheet and send me a verifiable time for the events that have NT's.
All warm-ups will be open lanes. Each warm-up session (except for Friday morning) is 50 minutes long. Please work together to determine the best use of lanes. Friday afternoon will be the most crowded with about 20 swimmers per lane and then it reduces significantly for the later sessions.
Team volunteer assignments are attached. All teams will work together to help run this championship meet. Please arrange parent volunteers for positions assigned to your team.
Heat sheets for the 8 & under event will be for sale for $1.00 at the meet on Friday morning. Programs for the rest of the meet will be for sale for $6.00 which will include all session heat sheets.
We are looking forward to a great weekend. Please let me know if there is anything you need!
