Steve Barden Results and Pics!

The 9th annual Steve Barden Memorial Swimming Meet and All Comers Lake Practice had many folks gushing with enthusiasm for this little ‘ol event, and swimmers looked happy while there and left glad they came… Thanks for attending! The weather held at the Biltmore Lake, long enough, at least for us to get in a handful of practice challenges, too

Help for Saturday!

A few things to consider for helping Saturday run smoothly…TIMERS & KAYAK / SUPS’s…

Friday evening, 6pm,  Jeff Weller and Jeff Owen will meet at Asheville School pool to help tidy up. If you’d like to lend a hand, please do!

Saturday morning, warmup begins at 8am and races start at 9am. We will need timers (2 per lane, 5 lanes during individual races), so if you have kids, partners, friends and they’d like to be just inches from the action, please bring them and sign ‘em up! No glass on pool deck, and as per USMS policy, no diving during warmups except in designated one-way sprint lanes, please🗾

Biltmore Lake practice, warmup at 2:15pm, with buoy set up happening then, practice challenges closer to 3pm. We would love to have kayak and SUP’S (stand up paddle boards) on the course! This provides a level of safety that is comforting! If you have a kayak or SUP, please bring it and we’ll likely have someone to paddle it. PFD’s for all vessels required.

All training equipment is welcome at lake! If you have a orange float bag that attaches to your waist, bring it!

Anyone who’s ordered BBQ, we’ll have that by 3pm. Anyone else bringing food, coolers should be fine on grass and beach.

Lastly, whether you’ve entered one event, five or none, please come on out and hang with your swimming buddies on this annual event! We’ve got 50 swimmers entered, and your help will make this run better.

Thanks!

This year’s pool portion is sanctioned by USMS (sanction #134-S007) and we’ve added the 500 Freestyle to the event list.

This is not a competition, and we do not have a sanction from USMS, but you will still need to be a member of USMS, or sign a 30-day waiver. All training equipment is welcome at the lake practice…
