|Trafford Development League Gala - Sale||Due to the anticipation of victory in Russia, this event – due to take place on Sunday – was postponed to later in the year (date to be finalised). It turns out it wasn't coming home after all ...... this time!!|
|Club Champs||Well done to all swimmers competing in this year's Long Distance Club Champs – it was great to see so many swimmers (especially the young ones) keen to take part.
A huge thanks to all the poolside helpers too – we couldn't run these events without volunteers – it's very much appreciated. If anyone else would like to help at future events, that would be great. Our aim is to get Club Champs and Pointscore licensed, so we can use times achieved at these events when entering galas. We need more helpers on poolside to meet the criteria for this, so please feel free to step forward in the future when we make our pleas for help. Don't worry if you haven't helped before – you'll be eased in gently!
|Desk during the Summer||Please note that next Sunday, 22nd July, is the last day that there will be a desk at the leisure centre until September, therefore if you would like to order any kit, please do so to collect by next Sunday at the latest, as there won't be a facility to pick up kit after then until training re-starts in September.|
|Please remember that this event will take place on Friday 7th September 2018 at 7.30pm. It'll be a great opportunity to enjoy an evening out together after the summer break. There's no presentation – we'd like to see as many of you there that can make it. Training will be cancelled on the Friday evening and the 6am on Saturday morning, although land training and the 7.30pm swimming sessions will go ahead.
Please look out for a separate email – coming soon - about how to purchase tickets.
|Summer Training||The final day for normal training is Tuesday 24th July and Summer training will commence on Thursday 26th July. The full training schedule is available in the members area of the website.|
|Sponsorship Opportunity||As was announced earlier in the year, we are looking at updating the Club logo. We're also taking the opportunity to offer the possibility of sponsorship to anyone affiliated with the Club. Initially we'll be looking at the kit being bought by the swimmers attending this year's Swim Camp.
This would be worn poolside in Altrincham, external individual and team galas around the North West, County, Regional and even National Championships, and of course on Swim Camp in Spain. It will therefore be seen by a massive audience, so is a great chance to advertise your business on a global (well almost) scale.
|Accepting of Cheques||It was agreed at our Committee Meeting this week that from 1st August 2018 the Club will no longer accept cheques. As well as the bank charges applied for paying cheques in, the only reason our treasurer now needs to physically go to the bank is to pay cheques in and this is obviously another avoidable time burden on our hard working volunteers. Wherever possible, we'd ask for payments to be made by bank transfer, and as the vast majority already pay most things to the Club in this way, I'm sure it won't be an issue, but cash will also still be accepted on the desk for payments of hats etc.
Also from 1st August 2018, all kit orders made on the website's shop will be pre-payment by bank transfer only (with the exception of hats bought on the desk).We hope you understand and support the reasons for this decision.
|Club Kit||If you’d like to order any equipment, please visit the Shop page of our website and your order will be ready for collection the following week from Sunday's Club desk (subject to availability of stock). We will not be able to release any equipment without payment.|
