Victory is Ours!! 2016 BPS Champions
January 01, 2017 at 9:47 PM
Congratulations to all who entered any BPS Carnival this year: our total score is 9483 ahead of Warringah (and all other clubs) by 771 points. So a resounding victory and well done everyone. Thank you all for your support and I hope you all enjoyed the Carnivals and will continue to do so next year.
This evening at Wests Twilight Sprint Carnival we won with 803 points, Wests came next and Warringah third with 221. Our 7 relays all came first or second(!) In age groups: 1st places went to Sandie, Cassie, Justin, Julia, Jamie and Jenny; 2nd to Kathy, Barbara, Andrew D, Diana, Christine and Simon; 3rd to Alan, Yvette, Bruce, Maureen, Helen and Wim; 4th to Steve, Sue Curry, Rochelle, Susan L, Greg, Andrew McC, and Ken. The Carnival was very well run: short sharp and speedy with a happy atmosphere and good weather.
Ryde had an amazingly good turnout: 30 of us which is more than a normal club night! It was good to have Rochelle and Simon with us for their first ever Carnival swimming for our club - may it be the first of many; also the first BPS carnival this year for Bruce and Diana; and the first for a long time for Khyiah. And several people put themselves out to support the club for this final event to make sure we won the Trophy. Our regular swimmers were out in force. Our 2 non-swimming timekeepers definitely essential (thanks Juan and Geoff). All much appreciated and very enjoyable.
