Exmouth Rosette Gala

17th May 2015Exmouth swimming Club

Please find details of a gala, organised by Exmouth Swimming Club, taking place on Sunday 17th May, warm up 5pm.  This is a friendly gala between Sidvale, Honiton and Exmouth and is open to all swimmers aged 8 and upwards.  It will, therefore, be a perfect opportunity for our younger Sunday swimmers to get their first taste of a gala after doing so well in the Time Trials and Club championships.  It would also be great to see the majority of our other swimmers there too, supporting their club.

Entry forms need to be returned to Sarah Lilley by Sunday 19th April with cheques made payable to “Honiton Swimming Club”.  If you do not have a time for a particular event then just put NT (no time).

A message for our more experienced swimmers, if you have times but don’t put them on the form, then NT will be recorded on the form.
