Swim
1. There will be five different swim waves.  This will require all participants to exhibit proper etiquette in the pool.  There will be minimal warm-up time in the pool between waves.
2.  As there will be 3-4 swimmers per lane all swimmers will start in the pool.  Circle swim after the first length to the right of the lane line on the bottom.  Tickle the feet of the swimmer ahead if need to pass but remember that you seem faster when drafting.  Pass over the lane line or the lead swimmer should yield on the turn.  Lap counters will be assigned to each lane.  The lap counter will signal when you are done.
2.  Your Swim wave assignment is determined by your race number as follows:
100’s:  First wave for the slowest  swimmers & relays.
200’s:  Slower male swimmers and participants
Any one expecting to use a stroke other than front crawl or to take more than 10 minutes or more to swim 500 yards should be in these first two waves.
300’s: Fastest females and relays
400’s  Males
500’s Fastest males
