Daniel Jaekel Chicago Classic
May 19-20, 2012
We are all aware of the possible impact of the NATO Summit neetings and activities on the meet. We do not have any special information that is not available to the general public.
The best sources of information are actually press and TV briefings from official sources. You can recieve text messages or email updates at Notify Chicago, a city sponsored information link or the official Chicago NATO Summit website. (The Chicago NATO Summit link sends you back to Notify Chicago for traffic updates.)
Timers and Officials -- Timing assignments will be posted Friday, 11 May. Both timing and officiating could become challenging due to traffic or other problems. Please be patient and willing to pitch in.
Check-in and Psyche Sheets -- Check-in will remain open as long as possible. Swimmers who are late will be accommodated as best as possible. We will insert swimmers into heats where possible or create extra heats if necessary. We will not however, be able to re-run events already finished. Psyche Sheets will be posted on 15 May; the Live Results link is up-to-date with a draft of the Psyche Sheet.
Heat Limitations -- We anticipate limiting the following events:
Sr 200 IM, no more than 6 heats
Sr 400 IM, 3 heats
Sr 800 free, 3 heats
12&under 200 IM, 3 heats
Other events may be limited as required by Illinois Swimming; final determination of heat limitations will be made at the meet. It is our intent to offer as many heats as possible while complying with ISI rules. Please watch this website for updates on this and other important information.
