Both the east and west spectator areas will be open for this meet, but admission must be purchased on the concourse before entering the east or west stands. In order to manage what is expected to be the heaviest customer traffic of the meet on Friday morning, two queue lines will be set up along the windows of the concourse of the Natatorium, one line forming from the east (parking garage side), the other from the west (track stadium side). Both lines will meet in the center of the concourse at the ticket booth, where admission can be purchased. Admission and heat/psych sheets are cash-only. Exact change is appreciated by both your meet volunteers AND your fellow spectators.
To spend as little time in line as possible when you arrive Friday, please plan ahead. Arrive early, but be patient. Bringing exact change for your planned purchases will expedite you through the line. For instance, if you plan to purchase the all-session wristband for admission, and a psych sheet, bring $15 for the wristband to move more quickly through the admission queue. Psych and heat sheets will be available as you enter the east and west stands, not at the admission booth. If you have $10 ready for your psych sheet (or $4 for your heat sheet) as you enter the spectator area, again, you will move through any line more quickly than spectators waiting for change.
Please be aware that seeded heat sheets will be available to purchase Friday morning, but all events cannot be seeded until after the posted 7am scratch deadline Friday. Again, please be patient. Seeded heat sheets will be posted on the walls of each concourse. Then seeded heat sheets will be printed on-site for purchase for $4. Again, exact change will expedite your purchase so you don't miss any swimming.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding on the first day of the meet.
