Blacktown BPS Meet – 5 March 2022

Report by Cecilia Kaye

Seven of our club members attended the NSW Masters meet held on Saturday 5 March 2022 at Blacktown. Two carloads of our swimmers drove off hoping to have a pleasant afternoon of friendly competition among 20 other Masters clubs happy to be competing once more.

The weather was warm and the water was sparkling – inviting our swimmers into the 50m indoor pool. We all looked forward to competing after the previous two years of cancellations and missed opportunities due to Covid.

With seven swimmers participating we covered a range of age groups, which meant we earned lots of points for our club. Just for fun, four of the ladies entered in the final event, a 4x100M freestyle relay and won their age group. All of our swimmers finished with a first, second or third in each of their swims. Overall Vikings finished 7th from 21 clubs. The Blacktown club were very efficient and kept things moving along nicely. Everyone came away feeling that it had been a great day and hopefully we can return again next year.

Full results are available for those interested in checking them out.

ACT Time Trials 2022 #1 – 26 February 2022

Report by Caz Makin, Publicity Officer

Tuggeranong Vikings hosted the first ACT Time Trials for 2022 on Saturday, 26 February.

We saw swimmers from Tuggeranong Vikings, Molonglo Water Dragons, Ginninderra Marlins, Woden Sharks, Saphhire Coast Stingrays and Penrith Masters enjoy getting back to some racing in Canberra post covid lockdown #2 in the autumn of 2021.

The regular comradery amongst our Masters swimmers was seen in bucket loads, with clubs cheering on their swimmers, and the competitive spirit we know and love throughout the afternoon.

The afternoon was rounded off nicely with a club-mix-up fun relay, and then some swimmers enjoyed dinner and drinks.
