Gal­ston Swim Club Pre­pares for Na­tion­als in Bris­bane

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

Our club has grown from about 60 mem­bers this time last year to more than 120 now. Last year at Na­tion­als we sent a team of 3 swim­mers to Ade­laide. This year we al­ready have 5 swim­mers qual­i­fy­ing for 8 events in Bris­bane, and an­other 5 swim­mers on the cusp of qual­i­fy­ing. These are very ex­cit­ing times. We did es­pe­cially well at the NSW State swim­ming ti­tles in De­cem­ber, with many fi­nal­ists, three bronze medals and Sam Lo­ria tak­ing Gold in the 13 year Boys 50 Freestyle, mak­ing him the quick­est 13 year old in all of NSW!

To help fund our mass ex­o­dus to Bris­bane in April, the club is hav­ing a raf­fle with some spec­tac­u­lar prizes, kindly do­nated by fam­i­lies of the club. First Prize is a trip in a pri­vate Jet for up to 5 peo­ple to var­i­ous lo­ca­tions in NSW, val­ued at $5000. To give you an idea of what this jet is ca­pa­ble of, it flies from Syd­ney to Can­berra in less than 30 min­utes! Kindly do­nated by Flight Op­tions. Sec­ond Prize is a $500 gift voucher for 2157 Glenorie, the gift shop at Glenorie Vil­lage. Third prize is a $250 Cas­tle Tow­ers Voucher, kindly pur­chased and do­nated by Hills Hor­ti­cul­ture, a fam­ily owned busi­ness with over 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in hor­ti­cul­ture, of­fer­ing an ex­ten­sive range of land­scap­ing and prop­erty main­te­nance ser­vices. Fourth Prize is a $150 Gift Voucher for Pet Town at Cas­tle Tow­ers.

Tick­ets avail­able at Gal­ston Pool, 2157 Glenorie (next to Glenorie Bak­ery), and Pet Town Cas­tle Tow­ers. Also look out for the na­tional swim­mers selling them when­ever they’re not train­ing or at school!
