Report by Philippa Rickard
Three swimmers (Roger Dietrich, Caroline Makin and Philippa Rickard) travelled through the heavy rain up to the Blacktown BPS Meet in Sydney to very welcoming sunshine on 4 March 2012. Not even the floods in Wagga Wagga were going to stop Roger making it to the swim meet with his family.
Blacktown is a lovely pool to swim in and there was the luxury of electronic timing which is unusual at a BPS meet. The only downside was the half height starting blocks at the shallow end for the 50m swims to counteract the very shallow water – luckily no heads hit the bottom on the dives! The trio accumulated 97 points for the club between them.
Roger and Caroline swam in the maximum four individual events, whilst Philippa thought three was plenty!
