Port Pirie Open Carnival
What a fantastic carnival we had at the new million dollar Port Pirie pool. We had many swimmers complete PBs on the day and even took home loads of medals.

Our boys shined with Billy Weltner, Matthew Lowe and Will Abbot taking home a swag of medals each. Our butterfly queen Julia Weltner medalled in the 100m event and our two youngest competitors competed in their first 100m Freestyle event at a carnival and performed exceptionally well with a standing ovation given to them by the Swimming SA officials at the end of their race. Full results will be available on the club website after the weekend

A big thank you again to Wendy for taking over the treasurer’s role in February. Accounts have now been brought up to date and will be posted or delivered at training this week. If you have any account queries or need to set up a payment plan please contact Wendy as soon as possible on 0409002576.

Congratulation and thankyou to Hayley Gregory who raised $1002.00 making her the winner of the most money raised – she will receive her iPod Shuffle in the coming week.

So far the club has received $2500.00 but has more than 17 swimmers yet to return their monies. We are well on the way to our aim of $5000.00 to purchase three new shades for our club.

Reminder for all swimmers who participated in the Lap-a-thon to please return their money and sponsorship forms to Wendy our club Treasurer ASAP. The club will be looking to purchase shades with this money and follow up on matched giving amounts.

Thankyou again to all swimmers who took part in the Lap-a-thon.
