Dive and Try Meet

Mid morning on the 29th November, the gloomy weather of the preceding week cleared and we were greeted by a magnificent blue sky and lovely spring sunshine.  It was an omen and set the scene for a fantastic afternoon of swimming and socialising.  Swimmers and guests began arriving about 3pm for warm up and the racing commenced at 4pm.

It was fantastic to have support from the Hon Alannah MacTiernan MP, Member for Perth, who came down to assist.  Ms MacTiernan spoke to many of the Western Sprint Swimming Club members and assisted by starting a number of the swimming races.

Following completion of racing, members and guests enjoyed a lovely spring evening with a barbecue dinner and the younger ones entertaining themselves on the water slide.

Thanks to everyone who took part and we hope to see of the guests back full time in the near future.
