Annual Awards Dinner Presentation Night – What a success!

What a fantastic night we all had on Saturday night for our Annual Awards Dinner Presentation. With over 130 senior and junior attendees, special guest speakers, trophies, medals, disco, giant raffle, dancing, show bags and mountains of delicious food. It would have to be our biggest and best presentation night ever.

Thank you for all of those who bought tickets in our raffle. We were able to raise worthy money for the club and congratulations to all those who won the awesome prizes, especially the Romaniuk’s ha ha ha.

Another big congratulations goes to Kylie Donnellan who won the “Dessert bake-off” competition which was judged by our very own Mayor Angelo Tsirekas. Well done Kylie. You can make cake for us any day! 😊

Lastly a big thank you to everyone who helped make it an extraordinary night. Special mention goes to our President Tim Doolan and Secretary Sophie O’Brien and their kids for all their efforts leading up to the big night. Another special mention goes to Duncan Lyon and Annette Jamieson for getting all the trophies engraved and organised for the night. Great team work everyone! 😊😊

Bondi to Watsons Bay 10km team swim

On Sunday 19th May some of our Drummoyne swim members took on the epic challenge to swim 10km from Bondi Beach around South Head and into the Harbour to finish at Watsons Bay. Amazing what some people will do for a Sunday beer! 😊

The team trained for months before building up confidence and capability in the ocean. The team would like to say a big thank you to the support crew of boat drivers, boat suppliers, kayakers and the family and friends who came to support. It was a huge achievement.

Well done to all involved!
