2 May 2010: Welcome to all the new members who saw 100 competitors in the pool on Sunday, and to all the old members looking like new again. Thanks for all those who paid their membership fees, and a special thanks to Neil Buchanan Garden Care who made his sponsorship donation 2 months in advance (we will invest this money wisely in our special 0.05% interest account!). We have a new Committee (see photo of Ass.Social Secretary and Handicapper attached) and an exciting year of events lined up. First among these is a possible trip to the Bronte Bowling Club in place of the usual bbq in the park. Support for this is still being canvassed, so put your hand up or down if this typeof event interests you. Everyone should have fond memories (or perhaps no memory at all) of the presentation day at the BBC a few years back. As for the foxes, Max (see results above), we are watching you!
Mothers Day: This Sunday there will be a special Mothers Day brace (featuring of course, Mothers and theirchildren). If you do not have a child, but would like to go in the brace, there are usually spare kids wandering aroundso perhaps you can borrow one? Or some mothers might have more than one child, in which case, you might wish toapply, for a small fee, for temporary parenting rights? Anyway, Martin will set out the rules - expect them to be ironclad.
The Russell Family are this weeks sponsors and have kindly donated this week’s gift voucher prizes. Also
available will also be signed copies of Stewart Carlyle’s new book (released to coincide with Mother’s Day) called“Everything I know about salads I learned from Col McDermid”.
Splashers of the week: Len Welch for signing on for another year of washing up (only 9 years to go), Rhonda O’Grady for refusing to take retirement sitting down, Paul Ryan for his declaration that his new handicapping role‘can’t be done by one person alone’ and Angus O’Sullivan for learning on his feet. Splasher of the Week status is guaranteed for anyone who can get a goggle company on line for sponsorship.
