Club Captain Night and Canteen Volunteers Needed

Hi Everyone, 

It was a lovely evening last Friday night. The pool was a great place to hang out in the heat and the kids really enjoyed the warmer water. Many also hung around for free swim at the end of the night, which was really lovely as well. 

This week we are short 3 canteen volunteers. It's just that time of the year where people have commitments that have just come up. If you can help out, please reply to this email and let me know. 

This week is our last regular swim meet for this term. Next week is our Club Captains night. It’s a relaxing night with some fun races and competitions as well as a longer free swim. We will hold our traditional parents versus children race. So, if you fancy having a crack at beating the kids, bring you swimmers along! We will also hold a free BBQ for those of you that would love to join us. 

Next term we will be back to our regular programme of events from 1st of February which is the 1st week of Term 1. During Term 1 we will host the Oxley Road Cup. The ORC is a friendly yet competitive swim meet between the Sherwood Sharks, Oxley Otters and us. There are only 2 swimmers per club per event, so it’s an honour to be selected. It is a great way to introduce the kids to a fun competition where they can experience the terrific Graceville Lightning team spirit - there is a lot of cheering on of our team mates and a lot of nerves and excitement from all the competitors and parents alike. Once we have more information we will let you know. If anyone is keen to support us by helping to organise the cup, then we’d love to hear from you. 

Enjoy swimming this week.
