  • Bathurst Cash Challenge Carnival

    Merrylands’ team of 34 swimmers and supporters has returned from this weekend’s Cash Challenge Carnival in Bathurst with some great results and having had a great time.

    The team left Merrylands pool for the trip to Bathurst on Saturday afternoon. On arrival the kids hit the pool while the parents prepared a wonderful dinner.
    After dinner most of us headed to what many people refered to as the biggest or best room (before realising that 11 members of our team were actually staying in it - it didn't seem quite so big then) to watch the Australia/New Zealand Rugby World Cup Semi-Final. Despite the fact that not too many of us new the rules we still had great time watching the match.

    On Sunday we did the 5 minute walk up the road (via McDonalds) to the Bathurst Olympic Pool for the carnival. A number of swimmers picked up some handy pocket money at the carnival and swam some good times not to mention Joseph's medals. We got out of there just in time, just as the storm hit for the trip home.

    Congratulations and thankyou to our members who helped organise the trip. Thankyou to Peter for organising the trip and the entries, Pauline for organising the accommodation, Russel for organising the bus, Kerrie for organising the food and to Noel from Pick of the Crop for getting us there and back safely. Thank you also to Ian, Tricia, and Jo for all their help with orgainsing the trip as well as everyone who helped with dinner. Without the efforts of all these people the trip would never have gone ahead or been such a success.

    A full report will be in the Whales Tales newsletter. The results will be posted when available and keep an eye out for the photos.
