Dress up for pool re­lays

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

COM­PETI­TORS should start plan­ning their cos­tumes for the Mitchell Roth Me­mo­rial Mer­can­tile Re­lay.

The an­nual event on Aus­tralia Day at Gayn­dah’s Swim­ming Pool brings teams of four to­gether to have some fun and raise money.

Past events have seen pi­rates, prime min­is­ters and su­per­heroes race the re­lay.

Teams nom­i­nate a time be­fore the race and the group that gets clos­est to that time wins the event.

Event or­gan­iser Me­gan Roth said there was no need to stick to freestyle in the water.

“Any­thing goes, doggy pad­dle, float,” Roth said.

“We’ve even had a big raft and peo­ple get pulled along.”

The race starts at 10.30am with nom­i­na­tion forms avail­able from the swim­ming pool.
