This week we have an enormous all day schedule.
Firstly we have normal Saturday morning racing with both a championship event and a trophy race.
The trophy race is the Tom Brown 50M backstroke handicap final. The race is named in honour of Lynette Brown’s Grandfather. What an amazing connection the Brown family have with the club.
Then, after just a couple of hours rest we have the 15th installment of the Battle on the Bay. Will this year be our year?
The race order this Saturday morning is:
|100M Freestyle Championship races
Plus shorter non-competitive races if there are takers for them
|50M Backstroke handicap races including the final of the Tom Brown 50M backstroke handicap trophy race.
30M and 20M Breaststroke
4 x 30M and 4 x 20M Medley races
Battle on the Bay
Battle on the Bay starts at 14:00. Please be early to get a warm up in and to help set up.
The order of events is:
- Age group relays
- 10 x 50M relay for the chocolate trophy
We will have a BBQ and a monster raffle with over $1,500 worth of prizes.
Pool Entry Fees
A friendly reminder for swimmers and spectators that the club’s user agreement with Belgravia Leisure – who manage the pool – does not cover pool entry fees. All swimmers and spectators attending our swim club meets and squads must pay pool entry fees with each visit (via casual entry fees or by scanning multi visit passes).
Payment of entry fees allows Belgravia Leisure to maintain the quality of the facilities and services.
If a pool attendant is not at the entrance when you arrive please make sure that you pay entry fees on the way out.
Note that Belgravia Leisure offer a range of casual visit and multi visit pass options. Detailed about these options are shown below and are available on the Drummoyne Swimming Centre website.
If any members, parents or carers have any questions about this please feel free to contact Club President Adrian Bell on 0424 561 831.
