Ducks honour Ambos, Firies and Police Services
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.
Results for Sunday, March 18 25 metre Freestyle final:
Roger Mackay (B), Henry Willcockson (B) 1st Mark Scullard, 2nd Judy Walsh Greg Salmon and Ian
