Out of 27 clubs we came 3rd to Manly and Warringah; on the BPS running score we have 3481 points and Warringah 3473 (assuming these are accurate and no further changes). So please, everyone, enter Seaside Pirates (http://mastersswimmingnsw.org.au/Competition/Events/Events/seaside-pirates-bps-meet) in droves and let's get well ahead. It is on Sunday 7th August.
Individually we had First Places to Catherine, Amanda U, Julia Riedl and Jenny, Second Place to Cassie, and Third to Leigh (his first Masters Carnival - keep coming Leigh!), Ailsa and Jamie. Our relays did well with two firsts and 2 fourths. There was always a Ryde person timekeeping which is excellent. Also we had 3 of us officiating and 2 doing further training as officials.
We have 8 of our swimmers (Jamie, Stephen, Susan L, Yvette, Greg, Cassie, Alan and Ailsa) in the top 25 most active pointscoring NSW swimmers http://www.mastersswimmingnsw.org.au/Competition/Results/Swimmer-Profiles
And congratulations to Jenny Whiteley who broke another National Record in 50m Butterfly in 31.76s.
NB We have learned from a couple of incidents that SWIMMERS MUST CHECK THEIR RESULTS asap!!! Human errors do occur with a wrong time or total omission or a DQ you weren't aware of (every attempt is made by Officials to catch the swimmer to tell them but it is often difficult to find them).
