Annual Club Championship presentation night
Louth Swimming Club recently held their 32nd Club Championships Presentation Night at the Town Hall, Louth. A capacity crowd filled the ballroom and a fantastic night was had by all.
Head Coach & Team Manager Kate Thompson assisted by Vice Chair/Coach Matthew Clarke did a stunning job with the logistics involved in organising and recording an event of this magnitude, surrounded of course by the team of Coaches/Officials/ poolside assistants and administration personnel.
Club Chairman Bob Wells compared the evening, and thanked all the poolside team for their passion and commitment also the tireless committee and everyone involved in the clubs continued progression.
This year events produced a staggering amount of Personal Best Times and new or improved County Qualifying Times a fabulous achievement by all the swimmers.
The evening’s events (Organised by Louise Jeanes & her Fundraising team) started off with the food organised as ever by Mark Swaby – roasts of Beef, Pork & Turkey with sausage & stuffing, vegetarian options, salads & puddings (brought in by our members), then the presentations, followed by the fundraising raffle draw and now annual auction by the charismatic Russ Jeanes, culminating in the popular disco.
The evening ran like clockwork leaving ample time for everyone to let off steam on the dance floor .
This year several tables were sponsored by individuals. Thanks go out to Steve Wright; the Mums table Caroline Scott, Conor Buckley and family, Jenna Twilton – The book Fair, Jenny Carter & Micheal Burke consultancy .The presentations were made by our Coaching Staff and, the deputy Mayor Councillor George Horton.
