Important Information for tomorrow's Swim Meet (5/11)
Thank you all for being patient as we work through this weather and cooler temperatures. We will be moving our swim meet tomorrow to Lake Hills Pool since they have a heated pool. We are so thankful for their generosity in making this switch last minute with soliciting volunteers and all that makes these meets happen behind the scenes.
The meet will begin at 9 am, our warm-up starts at 8:30 am. Please arrive early enough to get settled, get marked up and be ready to warm up. We will not be having any relays or the IM, we will start with freestyle. The heat sheets and meet information are posted on our homepage.
Volunteers need to check in with Katina by 8 am ready to be put to work. Please be flexible if we need to shift around folks – we are doing our best to make this meet go smoothly!
Location: The pool is at 3106 Edgewater Dr, Austin, TX 78733. Go North on Cuernavaca, turn left onto Mecca (which is easily missed for you rookies out there) and keep going until you see signs and are forced to turn (right) onto Edgewater. Parking is scarce down there, so you'll likely be parking in a street or even someone's yard. They'll have parking attendants. Leave time for walking to the pool.
Our area is on the far (northern) end of the properly - along Lake Austin / Colorado River, under the trees. We will not be bringing tents. Please bring along chairs, tarps, blankets that you don’t mind getting muddy.
Please talk to your kids on the way to the meet and ask them to stay OUT of the lake all times. The bacteria level and the flow rate in the lake are very dangerous. Any swimmers who get in the lake will be removed from the meet and sent home early. Safety is #1 priority – no exceptions!
Please bring warm clothes, parkas, extra towels for your kids! The pool will be warm – but it will be chilly between races.
Thanks again for being supportive and flexible!
See you tomorrow!
