Christmas and 10 year Celebratory Party
Our annual Christmas Party will be on Sunday December 1st at the Naval and Military Club, 1-2 Ysgol Street, Port Tennant, Swansea SA1 8LE between 2.30 and 5.00. Hope that you all can come!
There will be food, a disco, a raffle and our club presentations. As it is our 10th year we would like to invite all ex members to join us – so if you know any retired Stingrays please nag them to come along!
Ann Knight will be once more organising the food (all help gratefully received), and the raffle (if you have anything that you would like to donate).
Our usual DJ is not available this year so if you know someone who may be interested, could you please let us know?
Please could last year’s recipients of our three club trophies return them to us ASAP so that we can have them engraved for 2013. Many Thanks!
Debra Bendle Award
I need votes from our swimmers for the Debra Bendle Swimmers Choice award.
This award is for our swimmers to choose - someone who they think deserves this award for any reason they want!
Maybe someone who they think swims well, or who is kind to them, or inspires them, or helps them understand the training set! Please can I have votes by next Sunday.
Parents Night Out
A night out for parents has been booked for Friday November 29th at the Beefeater SA1 at 6.30. Can you please let Julie Allen (or me) know if you would like to come along?
Some parents have not yet adjusted their standing orders to the new monthly payment of £18. Please can you pop into your banks to do this? Thank you
The Pembrokeshire Puffins Gala on December 7th has been cancelled until next year. As soon as I have a new date I shall let you all know.
Out last session this year will be on December 15th and we return on January 5th. There is a calendar on the 1st page of the website which I update whenever I place a booking. Please would parents who are online keep track of cancellations and dates on there.
