Mercantile Relay
We invite your organization/club/individuals to submit a team to compete in the Club's Mercantile Relay to be held at the pool on Australia Day Saturday 26 th January 2008.  This will be a fun event and not highly competitive - you certainly don't have to be a good swimmer to be part of a team. 
We envisage that the relay will commence at 2: 00 pm, and run in conjunction with many other events during our 25 Year Pool Celebrations on the day.
Rules for the mercantile relay are as follows:-
1.    There will be 4 members to each team.
2.    Each member of the team will swim/dog paddle/float/use an inflatable raft/boogie board or by whatever means they wish get from one end of the pool to the other completing 2 laps of the pool as long as they remain in the pool for those 2 laps.
3.     Each team must submit their estimated time (for their 8 laps) to the Maleny Swimming Club by Friday, 18 January so that the handicaps can be estimated.  Teams are encouraged to visit the pool to do test times for submission. Handicaps will be posted.
4.     Teams are also encouraged to be in fancy dress costumes, as there will be prizes for the winning team as well as the best dressed team.  The winning team's names will be added to the Club's Perpetual Trophy.
5.     Teams will be handicapped according to their times.  If a team beats their nominated time in their heat they will not qualify for the finals.
6.     Six teams to qualify for the final.        
7.     An entry fee of $20.00 or $5 per team member applies for each team (with a student discount of 50% per student) and must be paid along with their entry form with names of team members, phone contact, and estimated times for their 8 laps.
