For Swim NC series scoring, particiants age will be determined by his or her age as of 12/21/18 - similar to USA Triathlon rules. You basically are whatever age you will be on New Years Eve of 2018. This only applies to people who will be turning 40 in 2018. All of you folks will be considered 40 for series scoring. You will be competing in the Masters overall category for series awards. You may in fact be competing in the 30-39 age group at the first or second swim of the year. But for series awards scoring only, you will be considered 40 if you're turning 40 at any point in 2018.
