Club Night News No. 3 19-20 Season

Club Night No. 3 was Freestyle Distance night.

We had 25/50/100/200m Freestyle as well as 25/50m of the three other strokes.

Darryl Conroy (Club President) presented our Club Captains with their Captains shirts.

Toowoomba Open Meet closes next Monday night 28 October – make sure you get your entries in via Swim Central before then.

2019 Medal Shots LC Prep Meet closes Next Tuesday Night 29 October, Minimum Age for this event is 12 years old – entries via Swim Central as well.

Redcliffe Prep Meet is this Sunday and we have 22 attending so good luck to all of those swimmers.


Every year we award Towel Awards to the swimmers with the biggest improvement points in each of the strokes. These are given out in two categories  – 10years and Under and 11 years and over. This year we are changing when these are awarded. We are starting with Freestyle and improvement points for this stroke will be based on the first 5 weeks of club nights and then we will move through the strokes in reverse medley order, presenting towels at 4 occasions over the season. Any winners are then ineligible for any further strokes throughout the season.

Points are given at every club night and range from -1 points to 8 points depending on how close you get to your PB(personal best). N.B you only lose points if you fail to tell me that you will not be competing at a club night.


The Parent Volunteer Roster Levy is $50/family and has been added to your accounts. You need to have paid this levy by the end of Week 4.

The Levy is refundable on completion of the volunteer roster obligations which is 10 completed rosters over the season. 5 rosters must be completed prior to Christmas and 5 must be completed after Christmas.

If you complete all 10 rosters then the money will be refunded to you at the end of the season or used as a credit on your account if you so desire.

Any questions about this then let me know.

A Special thanks also to Maree Morris and Garry Davies who stepped up and tried out some new roles this week in Referee and Starter respectively, we hope you will didn’t find it too daunting and will give it a go again soon! If anyone else would like to give a new job a try we would love for you to shadow someone and learn the ropes.

See you all at the pool on Tuesday night!
