A Grade Short Course Qualifying Meet Report
Over the weekend of 13 and 14 June, the Club hosted an A Grade Short Course qualifying meet. Athlete numbers were down compared with last year’s meet, probably because there were 3 other meets scheduled for that weekend. Nonetheless, we had around 1000 nominations from swimmers attempting to achieve qualifying times for upcoming Brisbane and Queensland meets. And financially the meet was a great success.
Saturday afternoon set up was a bit slower than usual. We seemed to be down on helpers compared with past meets, but with the additional help of some of the senior swimmers we had everything ready for Sunday by the time the distance races finished at about 4:30pm. Good work team!
Come Sunday the weather didn’t do us any favours with steady drizzle until midday. But in spite of that, and as we’ve come to expect at East Brisbane, the meet ran like clockwork. At least that is what it looked like from the outside! There are always things that don’t quite go to plan that we manage in the background to ensure the patrons to our meet have a great experience. Congratulations to all the volunteers on the 2 days who helped us achieve that goal.
