Presentation Evening
2nd March 2013 7.00 until midnight

Please put Saturday 2nd March 2013 in your diary or on your calendar as this is the date for the annual presentation evening. This year we are holding the function at The Four Alls, Woodeaves.

Tickets will soon be available from Louise Derricutt at the pool, hopefully from Monday 28th January.  You will have to purchase tickets in advance, as no tickets will be available on the night. The cost of the tickets is the same as last year, £12 for adults and £5 for swimmers and any other children.  Included within each adult ticket price are two entries to this year’s grand draw which will be held on the night. You will also be able to purchase extra raffle tickets on the evening.

The evening will start at 7.00pm prompt. The medals achieved during Club Championships will be presented to the swimmers followed by the awarding of the club’s annual trophies. At around 8.30pm we will have food, which will be a hot buffet and then desserts! From then on the disco will run until midnight.

Can we remind parents and swimmers that jeans and trainers are NOT allowed and the dress code for the evening is smart. This is always a popular event and you are advised to get tickets as early as possible as we do have a limit on the numbers the room can hold.

Swimmers Swimmer Award

Vote for your favourite swimmer

Down at the pool you will find some voting slips for the “Swimmers Swimmer” nomination. All swimmers are entitled to vote (for a male and for a female swimmer) for whom they would like to receive this award, it does not have to be a swimmer who excels at swimming, you can vote for someone who supports you or always helps you out. This is for you to decide.

Please complete the nomination form; each swimmer is entitled to vote for one male and one for female only. There will be a nomination box at the pool and the deadline for posting your vote is the 22nd February. Duplicate votes from the same person will be disallowed.

As we don’t have a notice board at the moment the box will be on the table behind the coaching team poolside.

Insurance for New Members

For any new members currently swimming trial sessions with the club, can we remind you that we can only offer three trial sessions to potential members at the club before you have to commit to full membership and register with the ASA. After this time the ASA will not offer insurance cover and we cannot allow you to continue to swim.

Crusader League 2013

The first Crusdader fixture of the year is our own home tie and is on Saturday 26th January 2013, the pool is avaialble from 5.30, warm-up 5.45.

Cancelled Sessions

In the rare event we have to cancel swimming sessions as a result of adverse weather conditions we will endeavor to let as many of you know as possible. However we always let the pool know that the session is cancelled so if you want to make sure a session is on before committing to travel, a telephone call to the swimming centre may be wise
