We’ve got a huge morning of swimming this Saturday with the highlight being our inaugural Canada Bay Cup relay. Mayor Angelo Tsirekas will be in attendance to present the Cup. We’ll also be handing out perpetual trophies to last season’s winners. Our very generous Gold Sponsor Gladys Mallqui of Veeva Property Group will be on deck to hand out trophies. On top of that we’ve got the the Final of the Geoff Roper 200m Handicap Freestyle trophy race, a monster raffle, 50m Freestyle and 100m butterfly…
The order of the morning will be:
200m Freestyle including the Final of the Geoff Roper Handicap Trophy Race. (see below for a list of finalists)
The Canada Bay Cup (timing TBC but likely after Butterfly and before 200m Freestyle)
Canada Bay Cup Relay
The “Canada Bay Cup” – is our new relay in which residents of the various suburbs in the Canada Bay Local Government Area (LGA) will square off against each other to see which is the fastest suburb.
As noted above, our Club Patron Mayor Angelo Tsirekas will be attending to present the trophy to the winning team.
Please complete the form at the end of this link https://forms.gle/uV8MBsqXagQGVhT5A to nominate for the Canada Bay Cup – nominate the suburb you live in. Please complete the form for each person you are entering for.
Please nominate by COB Thursday to allow teams to be formed. The number of participants will be determined from the entries received. We’ll also field a relay team from out of LGA swimmers.
Final of the Geoff Roper 200m Freestyle Handicap Trophy Race
Last year’s winner was one of our fastest swimmers in Andrew Sharpe but, as with any handicap race, the winner could be anyone. Junior swimmers who are improving quickly have an especially good shot at taking home this silverware.
Next week we will be holding heats for our 2nd trophy race of the season – the wonderful George Wheaton BBB handicap race.
BBB is short for Breaststroke, Backstroke and Butterfly. It’s a unique event in which competitors race each other with different “B” strokes in the same race on handicap. So a swimmer in one lane may swim Butterfly, another Breaststroke and a third Backstroke!
To seed the event, we need to know which “B” stroke you will swim. You must have already completed a 50m Time Trial for your chosen stroke, so if you’re new to the Club this season, choose a stroke for which you’ve already set a time.
