Bag Packing – Blackpool 18 & 19 April (2)
As you are aware we have another weekend of fundraising ahead of us – bag packing in Dunnes Stores, Blackpool Shopping Centre.
We will be there Friday 18th from 5pm until 9pm and on Saturday 19th from 10am until 6pm. The weekend has been split into six 2 hour sessions. Because of Dunnes Stores strict policy only swimmers 14yrs and older can take part, so we will need to rely heavily on parents to help out.
Attached is the roster for the weekend – for those swimmers highlighted in RED their parents will be required to attend on their behalf.
Please note: · If you cannot attend your allotted session please make arrangements yourself to swap with other parents and notify us of these changes.
· For our swimmers kindly remember to wear your Dolphin top as you are representing your Club. If parents have Dolphin gear, please wear it also.
Looking forward to another successful weekend of fundraising for our club and keeping fees under control.

The information has been collated and it must be said that while we had less swimmers in the water 92 compared to 121 last year our swimmers really out-did themselves. They clocked up over 327.55km compared to last years figure of 270km (see table below of breakdown) ……We managed to get as far as Sligo!Praise must go to the younger squads as well who managed to keep up with the older swimmers in terms of set length. Well done.
Huge thanks must go to Majella,Brenda and Claire for organising this together with our main sponsor Hillbillies (Catherine Grace)
In addition thank you to all the volunteers who pitched in to help oever the 12 hours. So far we have collected over 1300 euro but we hope to top 3500 by the time everybody has returned the forms.

Barry Murphy visited our club today and completed a fantastic session with our senior squads. He brought a whole series of drills and techniques to show our swimmers what it takes to be the Best Breaststroker in Europe.
