Zones Entry Deadline Approaches!

Click the logo to enter!

If you’ve been putting it off, it is time to register for the 2013 Colonies Zone Long Course Championship! The meet, hosted by VMST, will be in Richmond, VA, on June 22-23. Come swim in a great facility, the first-ever sanctioned masters meet in the pool used for the 2008 US Olympic Trials.

The entry deadline is June 13, and you can register online or by mail.

A few things to note:

  • There is a limit of 80 entries in the 1500 free. The 800 free is not offered as a separate event, but 800 splits from the 1500 will be automatically submitted to the USMS results database. (All other split requests must be submitted to the meet referee as usual.)
  • We need timers! Bring your children or grandchildren to the meet, they can earn community volunteer hours for school credit (middle-school or older please). Please don’t wait until the last minute, if you plan to time, please contact Heather Stevenson so she can sign you up.
  • There will be a nice BBQ social (with vegetarian options) at the facility immediately following the relays on Saturday. If you register online, be sure to click the “update your shopping cart” button to add the tickets to your total. We need to pre-order the food, so only a limited number of tickets will be available at the meet!
  • Discounts on hotels are available; see entry form for details.

Contact meet directors Chris and Heather Stevenson if you have any questions.
