The Meet Director reserves the right to re-seed the distance events after check-in if subsequent scratches will allow consolidation of heats. The deadlines for distance event check-ins are provided in the “Schedule” section of this meet announcement. \nSeeding. Seeding will be slow to fast for individual events of 200 yards or less and for relay events\, with men and women seeded separately. Seeding will be fast to slow for distance events (400y IM\, 500y free\, 1000y free\, 1650y free)\, with men and women seeded together. “No time” entries will be assigned to the slowest heats for all events. \nHeat Sheets.  At general check-in\, swimmers will receive heat sheets that show heat and lane assignments for all events that are 200 yards or less in distance. Separate heat sheets for the distance events (400y IM\, 500y free\, 1000y free\, and 1650y free) will be posted at the pool when distance-event check-in for that event is complete. \nScratches.  For all events\, the swimmer is responsible to report to the assigned heat and lane in a timely manner. Failure to appear by the time of the Referee’s short whistle commands will be considered a scratch; the swimmer will not be allowed to swim in another heat of the same event. \nTiming:\n• Timing system. A Colorado timing system with electronic and manual back-up timing and a full-display scoreboard will be used. All events (except some heats of the distance events) will be timed using this system. Manual back-up timers will be provided at each lane. \n• Swimmer responsibilities.  Hit the timing pad firmly. Do not cut through lanes until all swimmers have completed the event.  During relays\, remain clear of the timing pad area until the event is completed by all swimmers. Alert the Starter to request the required three manual back-up timers if you or your relay is attempting a USMS (national) record. Supply your own lap counting personnel for distance events. \nScoring. Individual events: 9-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 points.
