Kachemak Swim Clubpis Connor McCarron, 8, waits for the start of his event Saturday at the Homer High School pool.

The KSC hosted the Turkey Time Invite Friday and Saturday, with swimmers from Soldotna and Kenai aged 8 to 16 competing in a variety of events. Friday saw the entire KSC roster try for fast times in the grueling 500-yard freestyle event, a long-distance event that many of the swimmers had never tried before. Monday, the swimmers also competed in time trials seeking age group qualifying times for a Dec. 8 meet in Ketchikan.
