- Both tonight's Dippers sessions are cancelled due to pool problems. Back to normal on Thursday.
- After a successful Tadpoles gala presentation of prizes will take place after sessions on Tuesday 21st and Saturday 25th October
- Saturday 31st May session is OFF. The next Saturday morning session will be 7th June. Tuesday and Thursday sessions are unaffected.
We have decided to cancel both the 8pm and 9pm sessions tonight due to the bad weather conditions. I understand from the LC that the access roads and car parks are quite treacherous already and there is more snow forecast for later today.
We have emailed all members, but please help us get the message out by passing this information on to other members you know.
Saturday’s session is currently ON and will remain so unless we notify you otherwise. Any notification to cancel Saturday will be issued tomorrow evening so check your email - no email means the session is on.

Sputniks Gala Series
The Sputnik Series for 2015 will take place on the following dates: 31st January, 28th February, 21st March, 25th April. Entry forms and information can be found on the fixtures page of the website.
This is a great introductory level gala and gives swimmers a great opportunity to experience competitive swimming combined with the fun of a competing in a team situation.
Each of the galas in the series is entered separately so if you cannot make one of the dates that is OK you can still take part in the others.
One word of advice – the entry fee is a fixed price regardless of number of events you are competing in – so it is better value to go in for as many races as you can.
Please return completed entry forms via the usual routes – hand in to Andy at any club session or post them in the postbox by the notice board at the leisure centre. Entries need to be submitted by 17th January 2015, in order that we can get all entries to Satellites by the 21st January deadline.
