Scratch Rule in effect for this meet by Bill Rose, Meet Referee:
We are using 207.11.6, but it is modified in that once the swimmers are entered and seeded in the event, the National Scratch Rule is in effect, except a no show swimmer who is entered in an individual event, is allowed to swim in a relay and score points.  The only thing different than the full National Scratch Rule is the change we do for individual swimmers entered in a seeded event and is a no show. In order to not penalize the relay team, who might have relay only swimmers that might have traveled many miles and used an airplane to come, we modified this rule at a Sierra Nevada Swimming Board  Meeting.

Since in the Meet Announcement, it says we are following National Scratch Rule, my interpretation of the Rule is we follow  207.11.6B, which is part of 207.11.6 and states, "The scratch deadline for the first day’s events shall be fifteen (15) minutes after the general meeting is adjourned. The scratch deadline for all subsequent days’ events shall be thirty (30) minutes after the time established for the start of the finals sessions."

PENALTIES: National Scratch Rule - 207.11.6: In Sierra Nevada Swimming meets holding trials and finals, a modified version of rule 207.11.6C will apply to a swimmer failing to compete in a preliminary heat for which he has not scratched and is seeded to swim. The modified version of this rule states that the no-show swimmer will be barred from all further individual events of that day, but will be allowed to swim relays and score points for their team. Additionally that swimmer shall not be seeded in any individual events on succeeding days unless that swimmer declares their intent to swim prior to the close of seeding for the next day’s events.” Any swimmer qualifying for a final race in an individual event who fails to compete in that event shall be barred from further competition for the remainder of the meet except as noted in the USA Swimming Rules and Regulations (207.11.6E).
