Phillip Island Swimming Club Home Page

To all swimmers and families,

We had our first carnival last Sunday at the picturesque Mirboo North. Phillip Island did very well with many personal bests. Our home carnival is fast approaching this Sunday 8th February. The weather is predicted to be hot! As we are a club of volunteers, we rely upon the support of everyone to ensure the day is run smoothly. Below are a few things that we will need assistance with.

  1. 1.Raffle items - Thank you to those people who have dropped in raffle items already. These will be made up Friday night, so please bring something to training this week. If you know of any local businesses who would donate anything please ask and let us know.

  1. 2.Food - During the day, we will be supplying the timekeepers and official's with refreshments. Therefore we need cakes/slices, sandwiches, and fruit platters alike. If you can assist us here please reply to this email and let us know what you can bring please.

  1. 3.All hands on deck! As you arrive for the carnival, a roster for timekeeping (you get refreshments!!), kiosk, BBQ etc. will be available, please put your name down, many hands make light work.

  1. 4.ALL SWIMMERS NEED TO BE AT THE POOL BY 8:15 please! We have a quick team meeting and your captains will be introduced.

Our own carnival is an exciting day, and we are really looking forward to seeing how our swimmers perform in the pool. Don't forget, every time you get in the pool, you earn one point for the club!!

Thank-you in advance for your ongoing support!

See you Sunday!

Kind Regards

Phillip Island Swim Club Committee

Several conditions were put in place before the Phillip Island Centre could be started, come along to the AGM to hear where we propose to build the centre, and how we propose to fund the centre and how the centre could possibly look.

Q: What kind of stroke can you use on toast?
A: BUTTER-fly!

Q: Why did the vegetarians stop swimming?
A: They didn't like meets!

Q: Why do you keep doing the backstroke?

A: I've just had lunch and don't want to swim on a full stomach.

If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?

Why should you never swim on a full stomach? Because it's easier to swim in water!

When I was a child, I swam at a pool that had the sign

"Welcome to our _OOL, Notice there is no "P" in it. We'd like to keep it that way".
