Senior Swimming Sports - we only have 4 time keepers for our swimming sports on Wednesday. If we do not get our quota of time keepers, we will have to postpone our sports because all races have to be timed as we are required to send timed results away for the North Otago swimming sports. Any prospective time keepers will be shown what to do on the day. Please let Mrs Souness know if you can help. A copy of the swimming letter is included on another page in the blog.
