Basingstoke Bluefins Easter Egg Open Meet 2013
Posted on 10 Feb 2013 at 11:59 by Mike Lambert
Basingstoke Bluefins SC is pleased to present its 11th Annual Graded Open Meet, to be held on Saturday 30th March 2013 at the Aquadrome Pool in Basingstoke. This is Easter Saturday, so this is an Easter Egg meet. All winners will receive an Easter Egg in addition to their medal.
At Easter time there are lots of high level Licensed Open Meets aimed at swimmers trying to get qualifying times for the National Championships. Our meet is different. We are providing a friendly event for everyone else. In fact, if anyone beats the grade time (based on the Hampshire County Qualifying time), we will award them a speeding ticket, but not a medal. There are two sessions, each aimed at a different age group, so swimmers should not have to wait around all day.
