Unfortunately they haven’t provided a separate list with just our swimmers, so you need to search through the document to check for swims that have been accepted.
Note also, there is another function on at the centre that weekend so parking might be an issue. Doors to the pool open at 8.30am.

Our Rutherglen Challenge Meet is this Sunday at Larkhall (Warmup 1pm). Lindsay has a notice with a list of the swimmers (Log in to see the link).
We need volunteers to help the smooth running of the event. Angela is putting a list on the noticeboard, so please volunteer if you are able.
We also need donations for the raffle. Anything would be appreciated, although fermented grape juice and chocolates are always popular. You can leave any donations at the club desk.
Apologies for the short notice but land training has been cancelled tonight. Ross is taking an exam and unfortunately we can’t arrange cover.
The North Ayrshire Distance selections has a shorter notice period than usual due to the holidays (this Friday). This is a very important Meet for many swimmers and whilst many swims will likely be accepted be prepared for some rejections.
If you are selecting specific swims, Lindsay would recommend choosing one 200 meter swim and perhaps another longer one per session. This Meet lays down the swimmers markers for Meets later in the season where you may get a chance to qualify for higher level Meets. As this Meet usually gets accreditation, times achieved here may help with qualification for the Scottish Meets at Christmas. If you get them now and out the way then you can refocus.
Please make sure you get your entry in. If in doubt catch Lindsay this week.
