Thanks to everyone for the cakes and wee surprise on poolside last night for my 60th Birthday. That was last Friday, however I thought I had quietly taken the night off as Pam, leigh and Neale took me to Carluccio’s in Glasgow. Sadly the Rock concert in Berlin didn’t quite work out, Italy next time J

A huge well done to the Clyde Coast team today who won round 2 at Kilmarnock. Final scores were:
104 Renfrew Baths
Although the winning margin was less than 20 points, this was a convincing victory considering the team had no 8 yr old boys, which effectively gave away up to 10 points.
Every swimmer in the scoring and spare lanes all swam fantastically and contributed to a great team performance. It was also great to see a few first time swimmers in the team.
Well done to coaches, helpers and officials too. And also the watching parents who created a fantastic atmosphere, particularly at the closer races and the relays.
Next up round 3 at Campbeltown on Saturday 30th April.
The Clyde Coast bus will leave Kilmarnock about 3:20 so should be back at Eastfields around 4pm.
A reminder that the Clyde Coast bus will leave from Eastfield in the morning. Can everyone please arrive for 10:15.
