Further to our announcement that we had been advised we would be unable to hold our Development at Millfield over 2/3 Oct and would therefore consider alternative dates / venues, Kelly Podbury, Swimming Competition Secretary, has sent the following information to Club meet contacts by email on 1 Oct 2021. [Original news item].
Post Publication Updates:
3 Oct 2021: View update sent by Kelly Podbury to Club meet contacts by email with new Sign-Up Links for Volunteers and Officials, warm up protocols amended for Hutton Moor together with Session Report as at 3 Oct 2021 pre-scratches.,

"I have successfully been able to reschedule our Development Meet following conversations with Hutton Moor.

"I am pleased to announce that we will be running the Somerset ASA Development Meet on Saturday 30h & Sunday 31 October 2021.

"Both days will start with a warm up at 1pm and the event is due to conclude around 8.30/9pm each day.

"I realise that this new date will not suit all swimmers who entered the event previously, therefore I need all clubs to review their entries and resubmit entries to me no later than midnight on Thursday 14 October 2021.

"Please do not add entries, I only wish to receive revised entries if you are withdrawing swimmers from individual events or from the meet.

"Where refunds for the difference are required please include the bank details with your revised entries and I will work with our Treasurer, Mike, to refund the funds to you as quickly as possible.

"I know that the City of Bristol event is also being held over the same weekend and therefore our event can only go ahead if it is supported by Officials and Volunteers.

"Having run the session report based on the new location and timings I do have to reduce the event timings on the first day.  If there are not enough withdrawals from your revised entries, for day one I will look to scratch the 100m IM event for both boys and girls.

"If I have to do this then I will ensure that the County Championship conditions accept time trial times for the 100m IM 9-12 year olds affected.  I hope that will give you all some peace of mind.

"County Qualifying times will be out within the next week.

"Meet Mobile has been updated with the new event details.

"Officials* - please revisit your availability and update accordingly.

"Volunteers* - I will resend a link to sign up for roles at some point over this weekend.  Please share this widely with your clubs."

Kind regards

Reminder: there will be no spectator access to the rescheduled event so the only way parents will be able to see any swimming is to volunteer.

Please encourage all your volunteers and officials to sign up for sessions they can support. Timings for your Club members differ from when they originally signed up to volunteer or officiate at Millfield.
