Division 2 East - Gala 2 Cancelled
15th October 2019
Once again I am really sorry for the inconvenience, disappointment and frustration that the cancelling of Saturday’s gala at Beckenham Spa caused. The cancellation was due to the dangerously high levels of chlorine in the pool.
It is not going to be possible to swim this gala. The next two weekends are half term and then we have Regional Championships and then we have the next round of Arena.
After much discussion this is how we are going to move forward.
The result from the Medway Park gala, will determine the seeding of these teams for Round 2 and the result of that gala will stand. We will determine the Round 2 seeding for the teams that should have competed at the Spa by a ‘random draw’.
The Round 2 gala will then take place, according to this seeding, as scheduled in November.
For those teams that should have competed at the Spa in Round 1, we will take the Round 2 times and then run a ‘virtual gala’ to determine the result for Round 1. This way we will be using current times, and we will be able to get league points and gala points for round one.
The gala points achieved in gala one which was swum at Medway Park on Saturday will stand.
The random draw has taken place and the the galas for Round 2 will be:
Gala 1: Lancing College, Eastbourne, Kent Weald Black, Beckenham B, Edenbridge Piranhas and Dartford District.
Gala 2. Redhill & Reigate, Larkfield, White Oak, Herne Bay, Beacon
