98 [PGBSC Blog] 1500 and 400 free time trial

Hi Everyone
This message goes out to all swimmers in the the following groups: D2AB, D1, Elite and Y/N
As you all may know there is a time trial coming up for Saturday, October 15th. I have the sign up sheet for volunteers on the barracuda bulletin board. Please be aware as parents of competitive barracuda swimmers you are required to volunteer for all time trials and local swim meets. It is very important that you sign up so that your swimmer can swim this time trial. The format will be 8 lanes with 2 swimmers/ lane. Therefore we will need 4 timers/lane as well as the usual Officials. There will be a short familiarization of how to work the watch and your responsibilities as a timer will be addressed during the officials meeting at 8:15 am.
The time trail is booked till 11:00 am so please be prepared to stay. Remember we are here for all the swimmers.
Take a deep breath and have fun... This is a perfect way to meet new friends and prepare yourself for the fall meet in November.
See you at the pool
Christine Reid
Director of Officials
Prince George Barracudas
