Registration and Results pages have been updated.

We are using a new format for the tables in the Registration and Results pages.  This new format allows you to search for meets by entering information in the search field.  So if you know where a meet is located but can’t remember the name of it, for example you know it is in Westport but can’t remember that it’s the Compo Beach Point to Point, you can search Westport and it will list all the meets that have Westport either in the name or description.  We hope you enjoy this new format and find it more user friendly.  Please be patient as we continue to update our website.
