Fe­male Ducks lead raid on hams!

Dubbo Photo News - - Sport - By GE­OFF MANN

AF­TER the in­flux of vis­i­tors for the Clive Rootes Re­lay the pre­vi­ous week­end, the Ducks were less in num­ber – “but just as quacky as ever” – on Sun­day morning.

“22 Duck­ies were in the wa­ter vy­ing for a much sought af­ter Christ­mas ham,” Judy Walsh said.

“The girl Quack­ers grabbed most of the good­ies though, with wins to Marg Ross in the 25 me­tre freestyle, Li­lah Naden team­ing up with Rob Rich in the Brace Re­lay, and yours truly in the 50 breas­troke. To top it off, Ni­cole John­stone col­lected one of the lucky num­bers,” Judy added.

The Ducks Veter­ans Swim­ming Club is an in­sti­tu­tion in the city, cel­e­brat­ing its 60th year of ser­vice to our community and Legacy. One of the long­est serv­ing Ducks, though only an “oc­ca­sional” swim­mer in re­cent years, is Ron So­den. On Satur­day some of his old mates joined “Sodo” in reach­ing a “zero mile­stone of his own”. It was a birth­day with an 8 in front of it!

Prepa­ra­tions are un­der­way for the Christ­mas party. De­tails have been dis­trib­uted to mem­bers with a re­quest from “Daisy” Duck to make sure you con­firm your at­ten­dance.
