CIVIL ENGINEERS OR SURVEYORS
Due to a rules change this year, all the pools where records could be
set have to be measured and certified. A couple of pools have been
measured, but we would like to get some professional advice on
measuring a pool. If you would like to help, please email Michael
Moore chairman at pacificmasters.org with a good time to contact you.
After spending 45 minutes in a pool to measure a pool, we know there
has to be a better way.
have a good week
