ASDA Bag Pack

Many thanks to all those that took part in the ASDA Bag Pack. We managed to raise £472.70 over the 4 sessions held. This money will pay for the software required to enable our Club Championships, that are held every year, to be licenced, this means times achieved during this event will be ASA Ranked Times and can be used as entry times to Open Meets etc. this includes the DASA County Championship Entry Times.

Thank you swimmers and also theadults that supervised during these sessions.

With people who attain this first step on the qualification will enable us to license our Club Championships. This is the first step to becoming a licensed official, if you have ever been a timekeeper, this cause is ideally suited to you. There is a sheet to enter your name and ASA number on the notice board at Greenbank.
