Masters State Open Water Swimming Champs – 10 Dec

The MSWA State OWS Champs are coming up soon. It would be great to see as many club members as possible swimming or supporting. It’s a great event for both! When: Saturday 10 December (rego 6:15-7:00am, briefing 7:15am, start 7:30am) Where: South Beach (Fremantle) What: * The State Championship event is the 2.5km swim, and you will accrue points for our club if you do this distance. * However, if that seems too far, there are a 500m and an 1.25km swim on offer – these are a great way to give open water swimming a try in the relatively sheltered waters of South Beach with all your clubmates around for support and encouragement. * If you’re training for a Rotto solo, we won’t begrudge you if you want to step up and do the 5km. How: Enter yourself at the link below (rather than through the club as in the past). Don’t forget to put down that you are a member of Perth City (there is a drop down box beneath where you enter your details). Registrations close midnight Thu 08 Dec. https://secure.onreg.com/onreg2/front/step1.php?id=3447 More details: Go to the entry link or speak to one of your committee or coaches Food: Downs Syndrome WA will be cooking up a BBQ brekky that you can buy on the day. If you’re not into BBQ brekky then why not bring down something to share? Either way bring a blanket or chair to sit on and we can enjoy a post-race meal and chat all together. This is a great event for club participation so we would love to see you all...
