Robert Burr was awarded a “Good Work” certificate on 29th August.
Gurvinder Garcha has taken Thomas’s place in NASCH Finals gala as Thomas is too old for the junior races this year.
The entry form has been submitted with Gurvinder swimming 1 length (submitted time 39.78), Daniel Hodge 2 lengths (1.43.37) and Peter Markham 4 lengths (2.25.00). If times improve they can be resubmitted before the gala on 1st November. Aaron Peters is the named reserve. The gala will be held at Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre in Leamington. As last year, we have informed the organisers that we are willing to fill any vacant places for our region in girls, mens or ladies events.
The Kay Clarke Memorial Gala has been postponed due to lack of entries. It appears that it was too soon after the summer break for some clubs to organise their teams. It will be rearranged after consulting with the clubs affected. As we are unlikely to be oversubscribed, it should be possible to include a width race for swimmers who are unable to complete a length. It will still have to be held on a Saturday – probably starting at 4.30pm so that it does not depend on a party booking the first hour. This is the only hire time available at Bedworth other than 8.00pm on Sundays. More info asap. Our club members can have an immediate refund of their entry fee if they would like this or wait for the rearranged date to see if the entry is to stand. I have your money (Sheila).
