We have all been frustrated by the continuing lack of pool-time available for clubs. KES and the Uni still have given no date for the return of clubs to their facilities.
We have been fortunate enough to secure Friday evenings, 8:15pm-9:30pm, at the Morris Centre (QE Hospital), whilst your committee continues to search for more opportunities to train.
The Morris sessions will continue, but now on a pay-as-you-swim basis. We will only switch back to the monthly subscription model when we have a familiar and regular range of weekly sessions on offer, likely 2021.
If you wish to take part in next Friday's session at the Morris Centre, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space.
You are asked to pay online for any sessions taken that month, by the end of the month, as you cannot pay in cash at the session itself.
If you then find you are unable to attend, please make sure you cancel your place, by emailing email@example.com, giving at least 24 hours notice, (i.e. by 8:15pm on the Thursday evening) otherwise, if the session is over-subscribed, we will have to ask you to pay for your slot.
You can book for the following Friday each week from 8am Saturday morning.
- Limited to 20 spaces (max 5 swimmers per lane)
- Arrive at the pool 'ready to swim'.
- No showers after training - change quickly and shower at home.
- Do not congregate in the changing rooms.
- Be mindful of social distancing and use face coverings.
The AGM of Birmingham Masters Swimming Club took place on Wednesday 15th July, at 8pm, conducted online via Zoom.
Challenge 2 COMPLETED! We have run the distance from the University of Birmingham to the Duna Arena in Budapest (the European Championships)... and then back again, covering a distance of 3586 km / 2228 miles.
This time we raised £585 for LAM lung disease - lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
A quiz night like no other, rounds of animal noises and superimposed pictures had us laughing into the early hours!
As many of you know this April, members got together and ran 2500 km as a collective, logging our miles and cheering each other along through the Adidas app. We raised £864 for Teenage Cancer Trust, just one of many struggling charities during these times.
