This is another plug for the Newmarket Open gala (click the link for more info) which takes place on 5/6 December at the Newmarket Leisure Centre. Please remember that completed forms and cheques should be given or sent to Carol – email firstname.lastname@example.org – by Monday 5 October. Unlike for the Neate Meet, later postal entries are unlikely to be welcomed.
As discussed at the recent Club BBQ, the club is starting to put more emphasis on competition for our swimmers. We are currently discussing what form that emphasis should take, but it is likely that participation in certain squads will carry expectations of gala attendance. We have 30 swimmers going to the Neate Meet on 3/4 October – we would like even more to come to Newmarket. If your goal is to get a 2016 County Time, this is likely to be your last chance to do it.
If you need advice on which events might be suitable, times or help completing the gala forms, please see one of the coaches.
