Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who volunteered their time over the weekend and contributed to a very sucessful Spring Open Meet. Everyone from the entry desk, raffle table, marshalls, runners, medal table, team managers and water and sweetie distribution. Your support and dedication to help make the meet run like clockwork is so much appreciated. Especially our amazing Computer Team from Stirling, Alloa and Grangemouth swimming clubs, who pulled together and provided their support to help us run the meet after the tragic and sudden death of Cathy Millar. We could not have done have done it without you.
Thank you also to all our officials and those from visiting clubs, especially George Lawrie and Jean King who kindly gave up their weekend to come and support us as referees for the Meet. I'm delighted to say that the number of officials helping poolside was amazing and we were fully covered in all 4 sessions which means that the Meet was fully accredited.
The welcome extended to our guests and the atmosphere around the pool was fantastic resulting in extremely positive feedback from all the visiting clubs. Lots of positve comments were made regarding one of our older swimmer's debut performance on the mic, announcing - great job Jamie.
I hope you and your swimmers thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Huge thanks to our coaches for their support poolside and a special thank you to everyone who provided the delicious baking - it was very much appreciated.
Hope you all have a relaxing Easter Monday.
on behalf of the Gala Organising Team
