Wirral Metro has tried to accommodate as many swimmers as possible to the Christmas Meet again this year (morning sessions will be long, therefore we may have to incorporate a 10-minute break for officials) as we recognise this is one of the last opportunities to achieve CountyTimes.
Finish time for both days is anticipated to be between 5.00 pm and 5.30 pm.
Below are links to the Warm-up details for you to see, and we have also allocated lanes to each club. Some clubs may have to share lanes , but I’m sure we can all work around this. There will be four Warm-ups for each session and each morning we are looking to start promptly at 9.00 am.
With the above in mind, spectator availability will be limited, we have 230 athletes approx at each session.
THEREFORE, POOLSIDE AND ESPECIALLY THE BALCONY WILL BE EXTREMELY BUSY AND QUITE COSY. CAN I THEREFORE ASK SPECTATORS AND SWIMMERS TO BE TOLERANT, ALL HELPERS AROUND POOLSIDE ARE VOLUNTEERS AND ARE HERE TO MAKE THE GALA RUN AS SMOOTH AS POSSIBLE.
Please note swimmers are on poolside at 7.25 and spectators at 7.35. WITHDRAWALS: Please advise of any withdrawals before the gala to firstname.lastname@example.org or text 07851 123514, before 22.00 on Friday 6/12/2019, otherwise fill the withdrawal form in on the day.
