The following weekend we have representatives in the Division 2 meet and the 11&U JX Meet.

FRIDAY 1ST JUNE 2012 6.45 pm for a 7pm Start Unley Senior Citizens Hall, Arthur St, Unley

BYO Basket Supper including BYO drinks and glasses. Tea/Coffee will be provided.

An email was sent out to all members on 6th May 2012 advising of the above function and asking for a reply via email if you would be attending or an apology. To date, we have heard back from 8 families. This is very disappointing for the few who put in the hours organizing trophies, AGM booklets, room setups, speeches, special guests etc. The evening is a culmination of all the hard work and effort put in by our Coaches, Committee and most importantly our swimmers during the past year. It is a great social occasion for all swimmers and families to get together. Please come along and support your club. Some of you may have been members for several years, but may never have attended our annual Trophy Evening, so we hope to see you there. To assist the committee, please reply via email to let us know the number attending from your family, or if you will be an apology for the evening –
