GALA for Beginners

Our first ever Gala was a great success. All of the junior swimmers who  took part enjoyed their day and put in great performances. This was a good experience to get some ‘practice’ for more official galas in the coming months.  Results of the Gala are posted on the notice board.

The total raise from Gala entries and events on the day was: €1,830

Thanks to the generous donations for everything required to run the gala our expenses have been kept to a very minimal amount

  • Coffees / Teas /water / Minerals (Paul Smith )
  • Recycling of medals (Bentley Children)
  • Cakes etc (All)
  • Pat Daly – no charge
  • Expenses for Pool Hire and some medals totals €335
  • Balance to Away Trip Funds is   €1495
  • Great effort everyone

Club Gear

I have T-shirts sizes and am almost ready to submit the order for these. I am at the pool tonight after training with sample sizes for seniors ( no sample for kids sizes as if they are easier to gauage) . I will send an email with the order details before I place it so If you aren’t included please get back to me asap if you want an order for T Shirts only.

We will have the new club bags in the coming days – I will contact those who order them to organize collection when they arrive.

Hoodies etc are still in process  !!
