When the World Comes to Gal­ston

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

May 1st fi­nally dawned, the day of the Gal­ston Swim­ming Club Ju­nior Mini Meet for 2016. For the 4th year in a row, we opened our eyes and ears to thun­der, light­en­ing and tor­ren­tial rain.

110 swim­mers from more than 30 clubs du­ti­fully ar­rived, and their com­mit­ment was re­warded with a beautiful fine day. This car­ni­val is de­signed for swim­mers less than 12 years old, and even caters for 4 year olds in a kick board race. We had swim­mers from as far as New­cas­tle and Bathurst.

The amaz­ing ded­i­ca­tion of the mums, dads and older swim­mers of Gal­ston once again gave us a well oiled, seam­less and very prof­itable meet. We had 30 lo­cal busi­nesses con­trib­ute to the spon­sor­ship and prizes for the day, a tes­ti­mony to the area we live. A spe­cial thank you to the Gal­ston Club, who once again dug deep and were a ma­jor spon­sor for the day. Our an­nual pre­sen­ta­tion night at the Gal­ston Club will have been and gone by the time this goes to print, but I can con­fi­dently pre­dict, we all had a ball !
