END OF 2017 BBQ BREAKFAST

On Saturday, 23 December 2017, we held a bbq breakfast at the pool after the Silver and Gold Squads completed their “official” final year’s training session.  Thank you to those who helped organise the event and thank you to everyone who attended.  It was a fantastic turnout and a fantastic way to end the year.

Those squad members that attended received their Squad Swimming Caps which hopefully they will wear with pride during training sessions.  Those swimmers that were not at the event will receive their training squad cap in the new year.

Thanks again, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

(Apologies for the number of photos, but I am on holidays and have limited internet and don’t have access to my collage program).

FAREWELL : Yaroslav & Family

Last Wednesday, 20 December, we said goodbye to Yaroslav and his family who are moving to Brisbane.

Yaroslav has been an amazing member of the Woden Family, breaking and still holding many Club records (see below).  Yaroslav is a very motivated, determined and dedicated competitor.  He has been a wonderful club member, always participating in Club Nights, along with his little brother Ivan.

A huge Thank You to Irina (Yarolslav’s Mum), for all her hard work and many hours in running the club in the role of Treasurer.  Although Irina only took on this role this year, she has been instrumental in improving our Club’s financial procedures.  The role of Treasurer carries many responsibilities and we thank Irina for her work and dedication in this role.

We will miss Yaroslav and his family dearly, and on behalf of our Club, we wish them all the very best.
