Congratulations to the Rutherglen Swimmers who competed at the Scottish Gas Scottish Open Water Swimming Championships at Loch Venachar on Saturday.
Womens 2km – 13-14 years
Nicole Gunn – Silver, Naoise Warner – Bronze, Gillian Gibson – 4th
Great to hear Ross and Hazel Leslie, Ryan Docherty, Lindsay Young and Fiona Lappin on Radio Scotland talking about the club, training and how the Olympics are inspiring them and others!
(I’ve tried to see whether this will be available on iPlayer to listen again but it seems not – if we can get a clip from the BBC somehow we’ll post it)
Just to let you know BBC Radio Scotland will be down at the pool, doing a piece about grass roots sports and young athletes – they’ll be interviewing Ross Leslie at around 8am tomorrow LIVE on the radio!! If your are in a squad that is due in for training the make sure you’re down at the pool! If not, tune in!
Good luck to all the RASC Swimmers at the Scottish Open Water Championships this weekend!
Some of you may know that Helen Park’s son Cammy, who used to swim at the club before moving to EK, is taking part in this years International Childrens Games in Daegu, South Korea as part of the Lanarkshire swimming team. According to Helen he arrived safely and is currently getting acclimatised to his surroundings after a very long journey to get there.
Here’s the link to the Games website – (if you can find a link to the actual schedule then you’re doing better than I did!)
I’ll post up details and results if I manage to get them either from Helen, Graeme or the ICG website! Go Cammy!
For the avoidance of doubt no sessions are cancelled – maybe I need to look at the table layout again – H
Something to record on Thursday evening for when you get back from training!
Please note that on Tuesday evenings Gold, Jr Perform, West and Snr Perform will land train from 18.00 – 18.45 moving to the pool earlier for 19.00-21.00.

Cumbernauld Graded Age Group Autumn Meet – 25th & 26th August 2012 – Tryst Sports Centre, CumbernauldJuly 6th, 2012
Entry details now in the members area.
Last call for entries – please see Lindsay by Friday 6th July!
We have been invited to their Centenary Gala on Sunday 19th August 2012 at Galleon Leisure Centre, Kilmarnock. We are likely to accept, so please try and keep the date free. Although we would like to win this, the maximum number of individual swims per swimmer is limited to two plus relays. I intend to swim a full team as far as possible (40 swimmers), not just to maximize points. So there will be 4 boys and 4 girls for each age group. You may get moved up! This may not be possible in some older age groups however. Therefore everyone will get one individual swim and a relay.
Warm up: 12 noon, Start: approx. 12.30pm. There should be plenty of time to get back to Rutherglen for everyone for training 16.00-18.00 to make it a full day. Team will be posted at end of July. Last time we went they gave Medals and there was a trophy, we were second beaten narrowly by Lanark. The invited teams this year are, Inverclyde, Rutherglen, Kirkintilloch and Kingston – each team will have a lane each with Kilmarnock taking 2 lanes.
