  • Facility Rules: Please ensure those on deck are wearing indoor shoes.
  • Hospitality: HTAC will be providing hospitality in the classroom off the deck in the shallow end for all Coaches and Officials.  To be more environmentally friendly, we will be limiting the amount of disposable water bottles available throughout the swim meet. Please remember to bring a refillable water bottle with you to the meet as there will be several water stations available for water refills. We will have volunteers that will be available to refill your bottle for you so you can keep your eyes on the meet! Thank you for your help.
  • Unofficial results will be available on meet mobile and online
  • Web casting will be available during finals only (Friday-Sunday): Bell Community TV
  • Canteen: a canteen will be available (cash only) on the upper mezzanine behind the bleachers providing snacks and drinks.  Programs will be available ($10) and heat sheets provided free to those who have purchased the program. A limited number of 2019 David Fry Championships t-shirts will be available on a first come, first serve basis ($25)
  • Best Seats in the House raffle – enjoy the action from the comfort of reserved seating, with comfortable seat cushions, throw pillows, and refreshments waiting for you.  Tickets will be available at the canteen ($2 each or 3 for $5).  Draws will take place daily for each session (prelims and finals) at the start of the session warm-up.  Tickets must be purchased and submitted to the canteen prior to the start of warm-up of that session’s draw.  Winners will be announced via loudspeaker at the beginning of the session warm-up, and winners will also be posted in the Best Seats area and at the canteen.  Thank you to our sponsors Manorhouse Furniture and Atlantic Fabric.
