This is being done to ensure that the host committee is aware of potential expenses and revenue opportunities.
Bids will be accepted until the end of the business day on Wednesday, June 5, 2013. SwimBC's Awards Committee will then meet to evaluate the bids which have been received up to that point.
*Note that the formats for TAS Senior Circuit and Senior “BC Open” meets are still being deliberated, and hosts for those events will be sought once those formats have been confirmed.
