Asgard SC – Huge Interest in NUIM Christmas Gala

NUIM Christmas Gala – December 15th

Entries have been sent off for the NUIM Christmas Gala and we are happy to announce that the level of interest has been huge. We are experiencing one of the largest entries into a single event in a long time.  33 swimmers have entered in total with 14 relay teams covering  most events and spread across different age groups. It’s going to be very busy day!

With this being one of the largest events on the Gala Calender this is going to be a very fun festive gala with lots of opportunities to win prizes and medals and I am sure there will be a great atmosphere among the Asgard Team!

All swimmers entered are put into a raffle for over an excess of 100 prizes. Santa will be coming to visit in the morning too!

Some points to note are that each heat winner will win a prize, all events are H.D.W.

in the Open and Junior sections. Medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in all events.

A separate Speedo/Swim prizes (1st,2nd,3rd) will be awarded to the swimmer who swims the four 50m events in the fastest accumulative time. In the event of a tie a swim off will take place, the 50m event will be chosen by picking the event out of a hat.

Junior events in the 11 and 12 year age group will swim together in the heats but medals will be awarded for each age group separately.

The winning relay teams will win a Perpetual Trophy, in the junior section the age groups are combined as 11/12 yrs and 10 yrs and under.

Please download our team sheet (link available below) and make note of your events and team. John Murray has the list of details but am giving it to you also. John Murray will be the coach in attendance and there will be a timekeepers rota to follow shortly from NUIM and would also like to ask parents to please help out such as maybe lining up kids for their relay events before they go down. Its going to be a big event and the less chaotic it is for Asgard the better. Please make sure all swimmers wear their Asgard swim hats as it will be much easier for officials, coaches and parents also.Any problems please contact me.

Best of luck guys! Finishing off the term in great style! May Asgard triumph!

Merry Christmas!
