The 4th CABSC Masters open meet is set to take place this year on Sunday 19th April at Hucknall LC. This year this event is also doubling up as the Nottinghamshire County Masters’ Championships.
1. This is open to all masters swimmers who are members of, and competing in this event for, Nottinghamshire clubs, and who have not in the current calendar year either competed for another county at masters level or competed in the Masters county championships of another County.
2. Awards will be presented to the first swimmer (only) in each event, for each masters age group (25-29 upwards). Note that there is no seniors’ category in these championships.
3. The Nottinghamshire swimmers will be integrated into, and take part in, the open meet and will also be eligible for open awards.
Note: the rules of inter-county masters events will often not allow you to compete for another County once you have swum in the same year in an event for a different county so if you enter these Nottinghamshire County Masters’ championships you may be eligible to compete only for Notts in inter-county events this year.
This will only be relevant if you mark YES on the entry form.
More information including entry forms can be found on the CABSC website: www.cabsc.co.uk

As mentioned in our previous news article, please find the details of Anne Morton’s funeral:
Friday 13th February 2015
If you are wanting to attend the funeral could you please contact either Wendy Coles or Kate Bull as soon as possible so arrangements can be made and we are aware of numbers.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Anne Morton passed away yesterday.
Anne will be remembered in the county by most as a very friendly and bubbly character but very efficient official for Nottinghamshire. Anne was a lady that was always willing to help out at our events and events run by others in and out of county. Anne was until the last couple of years the Nottinghamshire’s Officials Officer, which many of you will probably know her through completing your officials training and getting your books signed.
Our thoughts and sympathy is with Anne’s two children and as soon as we get details of funeral arrangements we will let you all know via the website.
The provisional Meet timings for the 2015 Winter Gala have now been published on the website.

Warm up times for both days are 8:00am for the morning session and 1:00pm for the afternoon sessions. We are expecting to start each days sessions at 9:00am and 2:00pm respectively.
