17 January 2022
Its that time again and as many of you will be aware over the weekend of Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th March 2022 Caradon Swimming Club and Dinnaton Swimming Club will be hosting the Two Counties Spring Open Meet at the Plymouth Life Centre for its third year. Due to covid, the 2020 and 2021 were postponed so we are eager to make this one a bumper success.
We are hoping that this gala will be another huge success again not only for the attending swimmers but as a fantastic fundraising adventure for both our clubs.
Please put this date on your calendars!
We are also delighted to announce that for the 3rd year in a row Mount Batten Watersports will be our main sponsor. A huge Thank you to Alex King (a previous Vice Chairman of the club) and his team for their continued support. It is very much appreciated.
keep reading.... your help is required.
We are looking for Volunteers......
who will be willing to help us out on either day or both if possible. Roles will be discussed and allocated nearer the time we just need your willingness at the moment, please email Sue Bain on [email protected] as a volunteer.
You will not have to take on any complicated task, there will be some tasks that many of you will be familiar with when we talk about marshalls for warm up, swim downs and line up but in addition to this we will need helpers to hand out water, food, be general runners, hand out medals, post up results, etc, etc. So please drop Sue a message and let her know you can help!
Our final plea at this time is for you to consider whether you, or anyone or any business you know would wish to:-
Sponsor a hot heat - we are hoping to run 12 hot heats over the weekend for swimmers - the sponsorship is £100. The sponsor will be widely advertised and shared on all social media platforms from both clubs. In the lead up to the meet and again after, announced at the event and any literature supplied can be used at the event itself. Please email Sue if are able to help.
Donate a prize towards the raffle where we will sell tickets prior the event. Please contact Alex on [email protected] with any details of prizes, thanks.
Sell, sell, sell the raffle tickets once issued to you to your family and friends.
Donate or subsidise the purchase of 36 bottles of wine used as gifts for the Officials.
