Final Instructions For Golden South Series #1

Thank you for entering the Golden South Series #1. We are very excited to have your patronage of this event, which helps support our year-round coverage of the sport in Florida on We only hope to grow from here as part of our revival of the event and glad to have you part of it! 

The goal here is to have a relaxed, fun, and fast meet that is pro-athletes to have another opportunity to compete in the post-season. 

Entries closed today at 5 PM and just wanted to send a few final reminders and updates in regards to the meet.

Entry Lists, Heat Sheets, Live Results & Live Stream

All final entries can be viewed online already here:

Heat sheets will be posted at the latest tomorrow on as well as will be published on, which will have live results of the meet. The meet will also be live streamed on  for those that cannot attend as well as race replays and photo gallery of the meet as part of the meet coverage on the website. 


We have decided to bump the meet start back to 5:30 PM on Saturday with the high of 90 degrees in Fort Myers area as always the goal of the meet was to have a meet finish between 9-9:30 PM for a good portion of the competition to be held later in the evening with cooler temperatures as the sun goes down. The start time was always going to be adjusted based on the size of the meet to set up to finish in that time frame.

The meet size should really take about 3 hours to complete. We will run an efficient meet, but not a super-fast pace on a rolling schedule to allow athletes to double or even triple. The venue and gates will open up for warmup for athletes and spectators to enter at 4:30 PM sharp. No earlier.
