Merrylands SwimFest & Masters Meets – Saturday 22nd February, 2020

Our biggest event this summer and we need all hands on deck either as swimmers and/or helpers.

Today’s featured job: Timekeeping – one of the best jobs at the meets! You get the best seat in the house, with food served to you on a platter. All you need to do is push a button every minute or so. We need 14 timekeepers for the Masters Meet, and 16 timekeepers for the SwimFest. Speak to Graham to put your name down.

Our Masters Meet is open to all swimmers 18yrs & Over. You don’t need to be a member of Masters Swimming to enter, so if you think you would like to try competing, give it a go! The SwimFest is open to all swimmers and is great practice for school carnivals. See the event pages for details on how to enter.
