Swimmers can complete the sponsorship form or just give a donation on the day to the Rotary Club. The Rotary Club hope there will be other teams too.

If you are interested email your name to John Palmer ponjalmer@aol.com . The Swimathon is open to anyone who can complete 50m swims. We will put swimmers into teams of 6 so no need to worry about that.

We would like to enter a Masters team and we will look at ways to include younger swimmers from top small pool session or main pool if they want to be involved. Also any parents who would be happy to swim a few 50 metres! Officially it will commence at 7.50am – but if there is enough interest from NSC members and Parents we will start at 7.20.

Names needed as soon as possible but by Thursday 6th February at the latest.

20/08/13

Yesterdays Monday session was sadly the last Monday session for Newark Swimming Club . We have been trying for many years to gain extra pool time and one condition of this was for us to change our club night to a Thursday night although it was felt that we would be forced into this sooner rather than later anyway .

Therefore , the next club night will be Thursday the 5th September . All members have been informed of these changes via e mail and the response has been mostly positive . Unfortunately , this does not suit all members so some are leaving us as well as some of the teachers and coaches .

Newark SC would like to thank these members and coaches for their help and support over the years and we wish them well in their future ventures , although the coaches should be helping out at some of the other sessions throughout the week.

Nevertheless we are also gaining some teachers and coaches and as a club we are continuing to train volunteers and have several of these volunteers attending various courses over the autumn .

There are also many changes occuring within the training sessions , mainly a doubling of the time we have available .Please be patient with these changes, we are all human and are all volunteers who run the club in our spare time so mistakes are made

Thank you

Some of our members take part in other sports and also Open Water Swimming .

Louise Orgill is one of our masters swimmers who tackles virtually any Open Water or Lake swim in the country and sometimes abroad .

These swims sometimes take place in extremely difficult conditions with wind rain and the water temperature dropping to 10 or 11 degrees Centigrade , although sometimes the sun is shining and there is no better feeling !

Louises latest swim was last Sunday in Derwentwater and was 5 and a quarter miles which took her 2 hours and 58 minutes to complete in really cold water .

Louise finished the race in 5th place so well done to her .

It is with much sadness that we announce the death of Mr Alan Whitehead . Alan was a member of Newark Swimming Club for many years and his time with the club included coaching and standing on the committee . Alan was also our President in 1986 . Our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time .

The deadline for entries to this years Notts Asa County Champs is fast approaching .

If you want to enter and have the qualifying times (see pb list - in green) you need to let Simone (Age Groups) or John (Youth ) know by Monday evening to give them chance to get them submitted . To enter counties or open meets you need to have Category 2 ASA membership which means an extra cost per year of around £18 . See Rachel on the desk to sort this out .

If you have a PB to submit , it needs to be an official time from either a gala or a club time trial .

The first gala of 2013 took place last night and it was an exciting one .

The gala was Stage 1 and involved the younger and less experienced members of the club . There were some fantastic swims with 6 wins and 13 pb's . Wins were from Joe and Angus McCallion , Jessica Reed , Ethan Grace Riches and the boys 10/11 relay team . Well done to you all .
