EDAGS 1 this weekend (1-2nd November

on Tuesday, 28 October 2014.

Glenrothes

EDAGS 1 this weekend (1-2nd November) will take place at Glenrothes. The plant room problems that closed the facility recently have been partly resolved and the main pool is open. It seems unlikely that the swim down pool will be available at all over the weekend, but we will hold a coaches meeting in studio 4 on Saturday morning at 8:45 to confirm and discuss any impact on accreditation. Coaches please send a rep from your club.
 
Clubs will be able to sit around the swim down pool as usual.
 
Warm ups remain as originally planned on the off chance that the swim down pool does become available through the weekend. If not then those clubs that were assigned to use the swim down pool should use the main pool instead at the time they were originally allocated.
