Competition Committee requested adjusting Short Course Champs meet time standards to produce a bigger meet, objective to have 3+ hour sessions. I have gotten a fair amount of push back from some of the coaching community over making the meet larger. Session lengths of last spring's meet were 1.5 to 2 hours each. I am working on a set of time standards to increase the size of the meet so that the session times will be longer. What I want to do is to then circulate the proposed times and anticipated time lines to the coaching community and either gain concurence to a longer meet, or leave it alone. This may require that each club give us a formal response if the concensus is to leave the meet alone.

I had hoped to have a proposal at the the Board Meeting but have run into a few snags. I plan to have a proposal within a week.
