POSITIONS BECOMING VACANT
There are 4 positions vacant on the committee. This is a
great opportunity to become part of an innovative and growing
club. We are in the process of the rebuild of our current
facility and being part of the committee is a great way to help the
club through this process. Please firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com.
Swimming is continuing all through winter.
Just a reminder we have lanes booked at Graham Condon
every Wednesday night from 7 - 8.30.
The younger swimmers start at 7 and a faster session is at
7.45. The equipment required for pool champs is there every
week. Make sure you are practicing the events you want to
compete in for pool champs.
This is the elite completion for Pool champs held in Auckland
from 7 - 9
October. Should the club decide to send a team
to this event it will be selected on placings achieved at both
Canterbury and Southern Pool Champs.
Although its winter, the Pool champs are coming up so if you need
new togs, swim caps or clothing orders, text Kaylene 0274298050.
Please note that polos & hoodies are not kept in stock, and
there is a two-three week delivery time.
We still have plenty of 'old style' togs in stock. These are $20
pair or $30 for two pairs. Although they can't be worn at
competitions, they are perfect (and cheap) as training togs.
Rarangi Surf Club host this competition over Canterbury Anniversary
Weekend every year. This year's comp will be held on Saturday
12 November. I know it's a wee way away but it comes around
pretty quickly. As a club we camp at Whites Bay and arrive on
the Thursday or Friday (Show Day)
with the comp being on
Saturday and travel home on Sunday. There
has been in the past around 50 from Spencer Park attend. It's
a great opportunity to start the season on some great water to get
the confidence up and have a go on larger boards than would be
possible in our surf. There is no definite commitment
required for this one yet but just a heads up to know it's
Jim Wellacott is coordinating masters to train and hopefully
compete at Nationals in Christchurch next year. This is the
first year in a long time that Senior and Masters Nationals have
been held in Christchurch, so it's a great chance to compete for
our club. We are also hoping to compete at World masters
Games in Auckland in April 2016. If you are interested in
being a part of any of this, please send Jim a text 0274723353 or
Linda 0274086276. Everyone is welcome.
