Can I please get 2 clarifications fro the staff?

1. It says above that Larson secured a Pan Pac Team spot. I thought that the 50 stroke events did NOT determine Pan Pac spots.

2. Rowdy states in the video that there are no 50 stroke races at Pan Pac’s. I thought I read on this site that there ARE 50 stroke races at Pan Pacs but only Olympic events were being used to choose the team.

1. Error.
2. Rowdy is correct. Schedule here: http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/documents/bf/pan-pacs-program.pdf


Thanks, Braden! I did see that Pan Pac schedule, but I swear I read somewhere on this site that they WERE having 50’s, so I thought it was on oversight. Well now all is clear. You must be exhausted, I hope you get to take a break soon! 🙂
