COMMUNITY NEWS Galston Swim clubs receives a massive boost The Long Course summer season has arrived, and club membership­s are now open. This is a great time to join as you get the full 12 months to enjoy the benefits of membership. Show me another sport that does that!!! We are incredibly grateful and thankful to welcome our new Gold Sponsor on board. Dural Pool Shop has generously agreed to support the club with a massive $5000 a year sponsorshi­p. This money will go such a long way to improving our equipment and helping young swimmers get to the big events like state and nationals (This season in Adelaide). We would encourage all our members, and the entire community to support this wonderful business in return. Our general membership continues to swell, a just reward for the massive efforts put in by our two coaches Stacey and Adrian. In fact, over the past 12 months, both our junior competitiv­e and senior competitiv­e squads have almost doubled. Congratula­tions to all our swimmers who performed so well at the Sydney Metro North West Championsh­ips. The following 7 swimmers have now qualified for the Australian Swimming Championsh­ips in Adelaide next April. Well done to Laura Boll and Nick Miller (both qualifying for open Nationals) and Jake Marsden, Olivia Charlton, Jye MacLauchla­n, Daniel Steer and Sam Loria (all qualifying for age Nationals). Merry by Aussie Pumps Christmas Wishing all r cust ers, family and friends a ha y and heal y Christmas and New Year. NEW LONG RANGER watercolor background FIRE PUMP A ussie Pumps has launched a new ‘Long Ranger’ version of their popular Aussie Mr T twin impeller fire pump. The new pump runs for extended periods, a real safety bonus during a bushfire emergency. The high performanc­e fire pump features a 16 litre long range fuel tank that neatly fits within a steel roll frame. This extra fuel capacity gives the ability to run continuous­ly for up to 5 hours without the need to refuel. Powered by a Honda GX390 electric start engine, the pump features a pair of single piece impellers. These deliver flows to 500 lpm and with a maximum head of 95m (135 psi). The pump and engine have been carefully match tested by Honda to ensure performanc­e is maintained and that the engine is not overloaded. Aussie gives a 5 year warranty on the pump end and Honda cover the engine for three years. Further informatio­n on the new twin impeller fire pump is available from Australian Pump Industries or Aussie Pump Distributo­rs throughout Australia. We will be closing from 24th December to 8th January - reopening on Wednesday 9th. 9652 0969 8 Cattai Ridge Road Glenorie info@cafesasanq­ December 2018 | Galston Community News Read online at www.galstoncom­ 20
