On Friday 26 October, VIPs, supporters and special guests were invited to the Advertiser building to launch the official printed program for the Lifesaving World Championships Adelaide 2018. Guests were treated to drinks from our partners Zonte’s Footstep, Coopers and Schweppes, and a delightful arrange of nibbles.
Speeches were given by Surf Life Saving SA CEO Clare Harris, Melvin Mansell (News Corp Editorial Director for SA,NT and Tas), and Rodney Harrex (Chief Executive of the South Australian Tourism Commission), and guests were able to take home a copy of the program, before it was launched across South Australia as a newspaper insert with the Saturday 27 October edition of the Advertiser.
The LWC2018 registration system has now closed. It is no longer possible for you to add any more competitors or amend the entries. When you access your team registration on OrgaNet by clicking on “My Teams”, you will see just four icons remain to the right of the team name.
The first icon, the printer, enables you to view, download and print the full details of the registration that you submitted. It is recommended that you keep a copy of this.
The second icon, enables you to view a list of the charges of fees that have been applied
The third icon, enables you to view a list of payments made on your account
The fourth icon, the PayPal button, is still active and enables you to pay any outstanding fees. If you have any fees outstanding please make arrangements to pay these urgently, otherwise your team may not be permitted to enter any events.
However, it is accepted that there may be reasons why a competitor may need to be replaced, or withdrawn, perhaps because of injury or for other reasons. It is also accepted that you may wish to enter updated entry times for pool events, or change the composition of your relay teams, or change the events into which a competitor is entered.
The title of the e-mail must be: Request to amend entries for LWC 2018
In the text of the e-mail please enter the following:
The Championship into which your team is entered
OrgaNet ID number of the team
Name of the team
Details of the change to be made:
If a person is to be withdrawn, confirm the gender and name
If a person is to be replaced, confirm the gender and name of the person being replaced and give the
Date of Birth of the person who will be entered instead
If the person being withdrawn is entered into a relay event, confirm which competitor will take their place
Confirm in which individual events the person who is to be entered will race
Confirm their entry time if entering a pool event
Confirm their start position in any relay event
If the person who is to be entered will participate in Ocean events, give the size of the lycra vest to be ordered.
Changes will be accepted and actioned up to the 7th of November 2018. After that, any subsequent changes required must be advised on arrival at the Accreditation Centre in Glenelg from 14th November onwards.
All registrations for LWC2018 will close at 23:00GMT, Tuesday 16 October.
This deadline is one month out from the event start, and gives the ILS and Local Organising Committee the opportunity to verify all the entries with the national federations, and start preparing all the data.
Team Managers need to finalise their registrations on OrgaNet before this date, including adding team members, entering them info events, and paying all outstanding fees.
The system will automatically close off, so make sure any changes aren’t left to the last minute!
