Final Program for Celtic Masters

Here's the final program for the Celtic Masters on Sunday:

Just to be extra safe, you are still advised to double-check your heat and lane number for each race when you get to the pool

Registration will take place on the balcony under the scoreboard.
There's a bit of DIY going on so access to the Changing Rooms will be via the back corridors under the balcony and not via the general entrance. 

Session 1 warm up 9.00 am, start 9.45am. 
Session 2 warm up 2.00pm, start 2.30pm.

Good luck to everyone swimming!
