Booleroo Open Carnival

Good luck to all swimmers who have registered to attend this Sunday's Booleroo Open Carnival. The club is providing a bus for this event in order to promote competing to some of our newer members. We have 25 registered swimmers which is very encouraging and will mean that we will be taking registrations for the Port Pirie Bus Trip as well.

Swimmers need to have an adult responsible for them attend the carnival and be at the Lion's Park by 3.45am. The Bus will leave at 4.00am Sunday morning and return at the end of the carnival stopping for dinner in Port Augusta on the way home.

Swimmers need to bring with them a Club Cap (& Spares), Bathers, 2 pairs of Goggles, Towel, Drink Bottle, warm clothes and Club Shirt.

If you have any further questions please contact Wendy.
