Adults are required for these positions.

The ASI Events Coordinator shall provide the results runners with a list of persons to receive the results. The results will be obtained from the chief recorder and then photocopied for distribution.

    Merrylands’ team of 38 swimmers and supporters has returned from this weekend’s SportsCo Summer Swim Meet in Dubbo with some great results.

    Most swimmers broke at least one PB but the best performance was by Mitchell Emery who won both the 50m and 100m Breaststroke. There were mixed feelings for Rhys, Samantha and Sarah as they qualified for Cumberland one week too late – better luck next year.

    Congratulations and thankyou to our members who helped organise the trip. Thankyou to Tricia and Peter for organising the entries and the accommodation, Pauline and Jo for organising the buses, Kerrie for organising the food and a big thankyou to Jim, Brad and Peter for driving the buses. Without the efforts of these people the trip would never have gone ahead.

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