Annual General Meeting 2019

Post by Hon Secretary – Annette Byron

Our Annual General Meeting will take place at 6:30pm on Monday, 30 September 2019 at Town Centre Vikings Club Tuggeranong.

Please see Minutes of the 2018 Annual General Meeting, and the Agenda for the 2019 AGM.

As always, attendees are very welcome to dine afterwards at the club!

Tuggeranong Challenge 2019 – CANCELLED

Announcement from Club President, Greg Gourley

Disappointinly, a decision has had to made to CANCEL our scheduled Tuggeranong Challenge 2019 meet, planned for 21 September 2019!

The reason for the cancellation is a lack of entries. We received a disappointing response from ACT and regional clubs. The number of entries received was insufficient to ensure an appropriately lively, enjoyable and competitive event. It would not have been worthwhile for volunteer officials (many of whom would have had to travel to Canberra for the event) to offer their time.

Entrants will be contacted shortly so that refunds can occur.

A very big thank you to the Vikings members who had already expended considerable effort in preparation and organising, and thank you to those from elsewhere who were prepared to put their hands up.

Hopefully, we’ll be back – bigger and better – next year!

2018 Endurance Program Results

Report by Endurance Co-ordinator – Katrina Burgess

During 2018 eleven Viking swimmers completed the Australian Masters Endurance Program. The program runs throughout the year and involves gaining points through completing up to 62 swims ranging from 400m to 1 hour of continuous swimming.

As a club, we won the NSW pointscore, and gained third place nationally. 2018 saw the highest annual points ever scored by the club – a fabulous total of 16,911 points scored by 41 swimmers. Great participation! Those Vikings came VERY close to acheiving a combined one million metres, acheiving a total of 955.8 km, over 1170 recorded swims. Both of these figures are also the highest ever achieved by the club!

Award towels were presented during the club’s EOFY drinks at Tuggeranong Vikings Town Centre Club, on Sunday 30 June 2019.

Thank you, and a huge congratulations to the Vikings swimmers who took part in the Endurance Program, as every swim counts.
