Pool Training Sessions 2016-17

Pool training sessions restart on Wednesday 5th October in Maybole Swimming Pool, from 8 to 9 pm.

Proposed dates for 2016-17 (avoiding school holidays):

  • October 05, 19, 26     (not 12th)
  • November 02, 09, 16, 23, 30
  • December 07, 14
  • January 11, 18, 25
  • February 01, 08, 15, 22
  • March 01, 08, 15, 22, 29
  • April 19, 26     (not 5th or 12th)

This gives us 10 sessions before Christmas and 14 sessions after.

Our AGM is planned for Wed 19th October, 7 pm at the Sports Club. Hope you can come and bring your ideas for the club.

One suggestion is, along with a modest increase in fees, to give a discount for paying for a block of sessions. This would encourage regular attendance and give a more guaranteed income for the club. The option to pay weekly would still be there.

Welcome new members!

A big welcome to all our new members: Darcy, Amber, Jacqui, Harry, Rowan, Lara, Drew, Darra, Aimee and Michael.

The club going from strength to strength, and is now near capacity for the pool sessions.  Hope you don’t mind taking turns in a kayak it’s team-building!

We are in the pool until the beginning of May, when we start in the sea on Wednesday evenings.  Be prepared for some rescue training before then.

Not everyone will be ready to go in the sea, as it requires a level of experience.  We will try to arrange some summer sessions on sheltered water for younger members when the weather is warmer, perhaps on a Sunday afternoon.
