Another huge thank you to all that helped run and organise the Club Championships at Larkhall on Sunday. As usual, we couldn’t run these meets without Timekeepers, Chief Timekeepers, Marshalls and Coaches. Special thanks to Mike again for setting up the Timing system and Angela for organizing.
This meet gives many of our newer swimmers their first competitive swimming experience but in a fun and friendly atmosphere. They certainly seemed to have a great time swimming and supporting their friends. The few spectators that came along should also be thanked for their support. They certainly contributed to the great atmosphere. Hopefully we’ll get more supporters along next year.
Well done also to those parents and coaches who swam. The kids seemed to like that race in particular. Congratulations to Stewart Ferguson on an impressive win.
The medals from the entire Championships programme will be presented at the Awards Night at the Cambuslang Institute on Saturday 21st January. Tickets will be available soon.
The Club Champs results have been uploaded to the results sections.
Gerry has salvaged a protein shake bottle and a clear Speedo water bottle (black lid) from Larkhall on Saturday. If its yours, ask for Gerry Bradley (or maybe Louise or Anthony).
Kuba lost his blue-green speedo fastskin googles this morning at training. If someone rescued them please pass on to Kuba (or his mum Justyna).

Could any parents or carers who would like to take part in the 50m Freestyle event at tomorrow’s Club Championships please email Mike at email@example.com to let him know.
This event will take place in the afternoon, after the final swim of the Championships. All comers welcome – and don’t forget your towel!
A date for your calendar, the Scottish Schools Finals will be on Friday 27th January 2017 at the Dollan in East Kilbride. Some information is on the Swim Scotland website now and the draft program is expected around December 16th.
This is for parents/carers of Junior/Senior Performance and Rascals.
Assuming many of you will be at the Club Championships on Sunday, we’d like to hold a quick meeting to discuss the feasibility of the recently proposed Lanzarote swim camp in October 2017. This meeting will identify the level of interest, answer some of the questions you may have and determine whether the trip is feasible for 2017.
We really hope you can make it.
A reminder that we have a bag packing slot this Saturday (26th of November) at Tesco in Dalmarnock. There will be a sheet on the noticeboard for Thursday night.
We need 12 bag packers for each of the two sessions:
1200 to 1400
1400 to 1600
A huge thankyou to all that helped run and organise the Top Form Trophy on Tuesday. As usual, we couldn’t run these meets without Timekeepers, Chief Timekeepers, Marshalls and Coaches. Special thanks to Mike for setting up the Timing system and gubbins and Angela for organizing!
And thanks Milla for dishing out the sweets.
