Christmas Curry & Social

Saturday 9th December in and around Newcastle. Can numbers please be confirmed ASAP so that I can get a table booked. Also if you have any suggestions as to a venue, good yet reasonable they would be much appreciated. This is a lovely evening, all are welcome and it’s a great way to finish off the year.

Christmas Opening

We will confirm our opening times as soon as possible once the lifeguards have had a conflab!

Bike Ride 2

Further to the success of bike ride 1, where we had 11 people out the second ride is planned for Sunday 19th November, 1pm starting at the Poachers Cottage on the A34.

Two routes to choose from, 35 mile with hills at around 15 – 16 mph average,

or 15 miles with two lumps at around 10 – 12 mph average speed.

I know we are a swimming club but this is all great PR, build the club brand and will hopefully lead to a member or two. It also helps with the event planned next year:…..

Parogon Take Over of UK Triathlon

On the weekend of 2nd & 3rd of June we are looking to get as many people from the club as possible either competing or supporting at the UK triathlon event in Whitchurch. Kids, beginners, wanabees & professionals (Ed). So far I know of 5 or 6 who have entered the half ironman, one interested in the Olympic and 2 or 3 for the Sprint. That is alongside 10 ish kids interested in the event on the Saturday. So already we are looking up to around 20 competitors.

It’s about having a go and it is completely non-intimidating, the only pressure is what you put on yourself. The sprint is 500m swim, 20km bike and  5km run – eminently attainable with distances increasing as you go up.

Plan is to race in club kit, put on a show, club gazebo at the event, pre event pasta party, a weekend for the whole family…….
