The distance may have been longer for Aquathlon #2 last weekend but
competitors appeared to have their pacing fine tuned to suit and quite a
few said they enjoyed the 3rd 200/2 the most. Perhaps it was cooler
A big thank you to RD on the day Brian
Gallagher, our rego team of Diane Napier and Dan Holmes and
Di also doubled as post race refreshment provider. They were ably
assisted by a number of willing volunteers including some pint sized help
on the water station. Thank you all!
Brian mentioned in the race brief that if everyone helped out just once a
year, particularly if our more experienced members put up their
hand as Race Directors, the club functions extremely well.
Please take the time to check the event
calendar and volunteer where you can in 2016.
Our immediate aim is to fill the position of RD for Aquathlon #3 on 24 Jan

Our 2015 events come an end on Saturday evening with our annual
Christmas Splash n Dash at Nightcliff Pool.
This combined event with our juniors is an ideal way to kick off the
festive season and to catch up with members before many start heading off
to all corners of the globe.
The event counts towards our pointscore and we will have a lucky spot
prize draw on the day (you will need to be there to win). See you all
on Saturday evening - hopefully decked out in Christmas theme!

a warm up swim or bring family (you will need to pay entry to be admitted
prior to 5pm & will still have to leave the pool grounds).
