Ducks hon­our Am­bos, Firies and Po­lice Ser­vices

Dubbo Photo News - - Sport -

JOHN WHERRITT is the Dubbo Ducks’ res­i­dent starter. He is also a long-serv­ing, now re­tired, am­bu­lance of­fi­cer.

It was at John’s be­hest that the Ducks recog­nised the in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion the men and women in our first re­sponse teams make to the com­mu­nity.

A spe­cial three-per­son, 150-me­tre re­lay en­com­pass­ing back­stroke, breast­stroke and freestyle was well re­ceived by the 15 quack­ers at the Olympic Pool on Sun­day as the club com­pleted its Open and Aged cham­pi­ons.

“A few found the go­ing tough but for­tu­nately there was no call for the de­fib­ril­la­tor,” Ducks’ Pub­lic­ity Of­fi­cer Judy Walsh said thank­fully.

“The in­au­gu­ral win­ner and other win­ners will be an­nounced at the up­com­ing pre­sen­ta­tion night.

“Re­sults are hush hush and that causes plenty of gab­bling in the pond,” Judy laughed.

Next week will most likely be the fi­nal splash for the sea­son and will re­sume once the home pond is back in ac­tion.
