This information was part of personal files used to analyze the
characteristics of the Bay Swim events until 1996, when the data were sent to Chuck Nabit,
Director of the GCBS, and Brian Earley, founder of the GCBS. Since then, the
information relating to the number of GCBS finishes per
swimmer has been used by Chuck Nabit for determining who receives a GCBS
"longevity" award after they complete 10 GCBSs (completions need not be
consecutive!). Other than providing such information, the Bay Swim Archives web site is
not part of the Bay Swim organization or Lin-Mark Computer Sports, Inc.
The master Excel file that contains the Bay Swim results for all years is updated and
"finalized" once annually some time after each Bay Swim event. Therefore, any
corrections to past results are collected and made only once a year (firstname.lastname@example.org to
submit corrections). All
derivative files are created from the master Excel spreadsheet after it has been finalized
with the new data.
Since this is a volunteer, spare-time hobby, expect response times to emails and web
site updates to be very slow, especially June through January. If you use and enjoy
this site, please think of donating more to the March of Dimes GCBS fund-raising events as
a show of your appreciation.
