We are moving from a 'Sign-in' meet to an 'Active Withdrawl' meet.  This means that if your swimmer is swimming all the events you entered, then you don't need to do anything - Turn up, get changed and swim!

If your swimmer is not swimming all the events entered then you must withdraw, ASAP. This can be done as follows:

Withdrawls before 7.00pm Fri 15th June: Email Steve Samols  Provide Swimmer Name, Event Name and/or Number and Session Number. For example: John Smith, Boys 50 Free, Session 2.

Withdrawls between 7.00pm Fri 15th June - 12:30pm Sat 16th June: Text Zarrine Dye (the Club's Event Manager) on 07788974554. Again, provide Name, Event details and Session Number.

Withdrawls between 7.00pm Sat 16th June - 12:30pm Sun 17th June: Text Zarrine Dye (the Club's Event Manager) on 07788974554. Again, provide Name, Event details and Session Number.

If you arrive at the gala and wish to withdraw, or post 12:30pm on the day, forms will be available on the Recorders' Table upstairs on the Viewing Gallery.

If you fail to withdraw your swimmer on time you could be liable for a £10 fine under the terms of events conditions which have been available on the CoStA website since we opened for entries.

New CoStA Vice Chair announced

I am delighted to announce that Wendy Toland will be your new Vice Chair, effective immediately.

I am especially pleased she has agreed to take on the role being an extremely knowledgeable passionate supporter of the Club and someone who will enable me to make your Committee more effective and responsive as we aspire to develop the Club.

My thanks go to the outgoing Vice Chair, John Galvin who very kindly volunteered to continue in position up to the AGM, despite not having a swimmer at the Club, to allow me to reflect on how best the Vice Chair can benefit your Club.

I will be looking for someone to take on Wendy's current roles as Website coordinator and Paypal operations.  Opportunities for you to join the Committee will be announced shortly.

Andrew Birtwistle, CoStA Chairman
