HUN­DREDS of young swim­mers made their way to Biloela last week­end to com­pete in the 33rd Biloela Open Prepa­ra­tion Meet.

Hosted by the Biloela Bluefins, long-dis­tance races were com­pleted on Fri­day night, Novem­ber 2, with the re­main­ing 125 events on Satur­day, Novem­ber 3.

The week­end wel­comed hot and sunny weather for the com­pe­ti­tion, which saw 200 swim­mers par­tic­i­pate from 14 clubs around the re­gion, with each in­di­vid­ual com­pet­ing to beat their own per­sonal bests.

Clubs that trav­elled to sup­port the Biloela Open in­cluded those from Bar­cal­dine, Black­wa­ter, Boyne Tan­num, Caribeae, Fairymead, Glad­stone, Glad­stone South, Her­vey Bay, Moura, Mun­dub­bera, Rocky City, Western Sub­urbs (Glad­stone) and Yep­poon.

Biloela Bluefins’ Sheree Petty would like to thank all the vol­un­teers and com­mit­tee mem­bers “for all the tire­less hours and or­gan­i­sa­tion be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter the car­ni­val”.

“With­out your ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment, car­ni­vals of this mag­ni­tude would not hap­pen,” she said.

Biloela Bluefins were happy with the turnout for the 33rd event and said it wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble with­out their spon­sors – B&S Kitchens, Jump­ing Beanz Em­broi­dery, Biloela Shoppingworld, Gil­li­gan’s Ire­land Swim Academy, AMA Main­te­nance Al­liance, FCF Fire and Elec­tri­cal and Biloela Home Tim­ber and Hard­ware.
