M& B summer meet - June 6-7 - accepted swims

Angus Cameron, Lewis Aitchison, Callum Presland, Cameron Harris, Emma Rose Mason, Jack Mathewson; Grace Gill, Conor Kerr, Jamie Leighton, David Allison, Laura Gellatly, Emma Stirling, Cara Smith, Ciaran Nelson, Emma Davidson, Craig Coull, Fraser Allison, Fraser Johnston, Creag Doctor, Sarah Hugget, Sally Kirpatrick, Anastarsia Moffat, Amarialla Moffat.

The list will be available at the University from Saturday May 23, please tick your name there to indicate you have seen your swims. If you are unable to swim at the meet please ensure you inform, however be aware that withdrawal at this stage will still incur gala fees.

The meet has been heavily subscribed so to minimise the number of scratches and balance the meet more effectively for the Sunday sessions a change to the programme has had to be made, Event 416 (Girls 11 years 200 Backstroke) has been moved from the last event of the day to the first event of the day. This event has also been renumbered as event 300.

All swimmers that were entered into event 416 also had a swim in the morning session so this should not cause a problem.

Please note change in times for the afternoons:
Warm-up times: 9.00am and 1.30 pm each day.
Session start: 10.00am and 2.15 pm each day
