38th Annual Pop Sidwell Swim Meet - November 23, 2013

The date for the Pop Sidwell has been finalized - November 23, 2013. This year will be the 38th year of the meet.

For members who wish to swim an entry form is attached. Please give the form with your fees to Bob Groff.

For members who do not wish to compete, the club needs volunteers for timers and swim meet officials. The skills and knowledge needed are easily acquired at training sessions (see below). We are often short of the following positions:
Clerk of Course / Data Entry
Stroke and Turn Judges; Two or more qualified
Meet Manager.
Timers (we need 18)
Should you have any questions about volunteering for the meet, Bob Modrcin or Bob Groff will be able to provide more information. Officiating will increase one's understanding of swimming techniques, and the sport in general. Most importantly, it is fun! We hope you will join us in continuing the tradition of the Pop Sidwell Swim Meet.
