Home Gala

Sunday 15th November 2015Swimming-Gala

The club is pleased to announce plans to hold a home gala in conjunction with Chard Swimming Club on Sunday 15th November.  This will be the first gala the club has held for many years so we really hope it will be supported by all our members.  Obviously such an event requires pre-planning and assistance on the day, especially from parents/guardians, so we will be publishing a help list in September which we will be seeking volunteers for to ensure the event is a success.

Please remember this is a great opportunity for the club to promote itself as well as raise some vital funds so any donations or sponsorships will be very welcome.

Please note, this gala is open to all of our swimmers aged 9 and over but it is advisable to speak to Ralph if you are not sure whether or not it is suitable for your child.

DSC02706A big congratulations to all our swimmers who took part in the gala yesterday.  Not only were there some excellent performances but the support provided to team colleagues was superb.  Some swimmers took part in over 10 events to compensate for our lack of male competitors but this did not limit the number of PB’s achieved.  One of the most noticeable and commendable elements of our swimmers was the etiquette they demonstrated during the race starts which Coach Ralph was extremely proud of.  Unfortunately we are not able to provide individual times for the relay events but the times and team members/order of swim can be seen below.

The results of individual races can be found in the link provided at the bottom of this post.

Although this is a level 3 gala there are no qualifying times, only upper time limits, and so this is suitable for all swimmers aged 9 and above.  Swimmers from Honiton have attended this gala for the past 4 or 5 years and have always enjoyed it so please do take part if you can.
