9TH & 10TH JULY 2016

Level 2 Meet – First two sessions of each day

Level 3 Development Meet – last session of each day

Please see attached an amended meet pack which includes qualifying times for the Level 2 50m FC and changes to the upper cut off for the Level 3 Meet. TD Newport Meet

We would like all swimmers to try and attend this Meet.  It caters for all levels of the club, is the end of the training cycle Meet for some squads and excellent preparation for the Welsh/British Summers for others.

Age as at 10th July 2016 (swimmers need to be 8 years old or older)

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES IS SATURDAY 4TH JUNE 2016 (No entries without payment).




Please find attached a breakdown of entries received – Bristol Entries

Please can you notify us of any errors by Monday 23rd May. After this time we will not be able to change times as the programme will go to print. Can you please pass out to all other members of your club please.

We are fortunate that we have been able to accept all entries however we have had to tweak the programme to ensure the Swimmers and officials are not on the deck for too long. The 400Fc & 200Im will be held as a separate session at the start of both days. Everything else will be as normal.

At this time our estimated session times are:

Session 1 warm up 8.30 start 9am

Session 2 warm up 10.40 start 11.30

Session 3 warm up 1.40 start 2.30

Estimated finish time 5.30

Session 4 warm up 8.30 start 9am

Session 5 warm up 10.30 start 11.20

Session 6 warm up 1.40 start 2.30

Estimated finish time 5.30

We will break down the warm ups further for you once all entries have been checked.

Don’t forget the fathers day relay race on the Sunday !

**SUMMER BALL** – Saturday 4th June.

This will be a great social event and all members from all squads are welcome!

We have bounced back and forth a few ideas and have decided to go with “Everything British” as the theme; this will coincide with the Queens 90th birthday celebrations that are going on from April to July.

We hope that you can join us and would love you to get into the spirit of the evening. Whether dressing up as the Queen herself, Princesses, Union Jack flags, Spice Girls or even David Bowie or just putting on your party clothes… anything goes – just come and join in the fun!!

If you had already bought tickets for 11th and are unable to make 4th June, you will be entitled to a refund.

Tickets are now on sale – please see Lorna Sulway, Dawn Bennett, Rachel McGuiness or Pam Shearn. 

£10 family ticket or £3 individual tickets

Look forward to seeing all there!
