We need your trophies back…

We’re in the process of getting the trophies engraved but there are a small number that are still sitting on people’s mantle pieces. If you have a trophy please get in touch with Shellee Ossen ASAP (0414 224 466).

Winter Swim Club

Thanks to everyone who completed the survey about winter swimming at swim club a few weeks back. The results showed that too much swimming is never enough for DSC members.

So, we plan on running 4 x winter swim club meets over the winter period.

As with previous years Winter Swim Club meets are likely to be held at the Riverview College Indoor Pool on Sunday afternoons and will be held once a month from June through to September.

More details will be provided once available.

New Club Constitution

The Club committee has been reviewing our constitution – which is now a little out of date and overdue for a revamp.

David Parker has kindly done the pro bono work and drafted a new document for us.

We’ll be circulating a copy to all members ahead of the Presentation Night which will also act as an extraordinary general meeting.

Members will have the opportunity to vote on adopting the constitution at the event *.

Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday the 23rd August 2021. All members are encouraged to attend and participate.

If you are interested in joining the committee or helping out with the running of the club please feel free to contact Adrian Bell on 0424 561 831 in advance of the AGM.

More information about the proposed new constitution and the AGM will follow.

* voting on the constitution may or may not be a pre-requisite to obtaining dessert 🙂
