Last year saw the introduction of
the new Home Series, established by the wonderful Tina and Andrea.
We would like to relieve some of their responsibilities and as
such, we (Jacqueline
Chamberlain and Caroline Wright) are taking on the
roles of Promoter for these events.
Please be gentle with us, we will
do our best to get it right! Jacqueline has sons who train at
Bury/Culford and Caroline has a daughter at Haverhill. We are happy
to answer questions and we would love to hear any suggestions you
may have. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The home series is for West
Suffolk swimmers to try out events and improve their PBs. We will
have a level 4 license so that the times gained can be used for
County Championship qualifying. You may have noticed that there are
4 home series dates on the calendar this year and that Round 1, on
1st June, is open for entries. It is first come first served until
we fill our allotted pool time so please get your entries in. The
price for entering each race is £2.50. The remaining fixtures
will be open for entries once we receive the
Like last year we will split the
swimmers into teams. To help identify the teams FINS have very
kindly purchased some coloured hats. Hopefully the swimmers (and
parents!!) will cheer their team mates on to help them achieve the
best times they can and earn a prize for the winning team. Please
remember to stay to the end of the evening as there will be pizza
for the swimmers.
To make these meets enjoyable and
a success for the swimmers we need your help. As always we need our
wonderful officials, without whom we cannot run these events. To
help the officials feel appreciated it would be lovely to be able
to offer them a piece of cake before they start their work for our
children, so donations of cakes, doughnuts, cookies etc will be
very gratefully received and also sold on the refreshment table.
There are also lots of other ways you can help and there is a job
list on the website. Please have a look and sign up if you can.
It's a great way to meet people and try something new, no
