Thank you to everyone involved in putting on this event, from the two counties committee who started work early in September 2018 with key preparations, right through to running the meet on the day. Our thanks to our sponsor, for the second year in a row, Alex King and The Mountbatten Watersports and Activities Centre which enabled us to run the hotly contested skins event.
We couldn't do it with out the help and support of all our parents and volunteers who gave up their time to be poolside and to those hidden behind the scenes. To everyone who donated raffle prizes and bought tickets. To all the officials who gave of their time without whom, we could not of run the meet. You are all wonderful.
Our team of caradon coaches led by our Head Coach Jason along with Maggie, Chris, Phillip, Hannah, Jenson, Sam, Eddie and Ashley - huge thanks for all the hard work and dedication you give to Caradon and to our swimmers. Our Team Manager, Claire Rickards assisted by Ashley looked after over 40 swimmers during that weekend, making sure swimmers were in the right place at the right time!
