Well done all swimmers and helpers at our Carnival. We did well despite sickness and dropouts; and we have had many compliments on our efficiency (finishing early!!), friendliness and catering. Results will go up on the web soon. So many many thanks to everyone for their help in making our Carnival such a success. Jamie

Organising and running a carnival is a very tricky thing to do. This year it was a 4 event carnival so a slightly longer day for everyone. A big thank you for everyone that contributed to our carnival. It is probably the most efficient event in the calendar and is very popular with the other clubs which means that we make money for the club on the day. This year we made approximately $1500 thanks to everyone’s efforts. The BBQ was efficiently run thanks to Ian (Chef de jour) and Kathy for organising the food. Thanks to everyone that contributed sandwiches and cakes. Thanks to Lesa and Joanne for distributing them. Thanks to Alan for working behind the scenes with the long check lists for the day. Thanks to Ailsa for organising the raffle and everyone that contributed to the prizes. This made $730 this year alone. Thanks to our officials and everyone that held it together on the day such as our young runners, timekeepers, marshals, starter Greg, Jamie coordinating and safety lane monitors. Big thank you to Wendy for organising rosters and entry and thanks to the team in the office Sarah, Helen and Jenny. Everyone did a great job, had a swim and hopefully had an enjoyable time too.
