52nd Annual Bazar

Today was a very important day for the Club with the annual fund raising “Bazaar” being held in the community center. As you can see on the photographs, the hall was buzzing with fun activities…

The games were very busy all afternoon and the children were having great fun…. The different stands were offering good offers between toys, games, books, etc. The “Ricketing” wheel (Wheel of Fortune) was as popular as ever with Enda McDaid, did you see all the FAB spot prizes! The little “Coffee shop” kept everyone smiling and made the place so welcoming. Thanks to some excellent “Home bakers”, all sorts of home bakery treats were offered to all. Thanks to our “Sales Department!” with the sale of tickets for the “Spot prizes”, guess the name of Teddy and try to get your hands on the beautiful Christmas cake baked by Anna Greed, a lot of money was being raised.

This ONE big activity could not have happened without the help of many people who made it possible. So, BIG thank you to the organisers, the spot prizes providers, all the helpers and home bakers for your time and contribution.

Once again this year, the Bazaar was a HUGE success!

Kingdom Invitation – Gala Report

18 swimmers competed at the Kingdom Invitation for Askeaton Swimming Club on November 29th.

An early start saw many sleepy heads on a bus trip to Tralee, but that’s where the tiredness ended. A fairly packed schedule saw a total of 18 events to be run.

Our swimmers competed in 62 swims and collectively gather 42 personal bests, 1 gold, 5 silver and 6 bronze medals. For a competition where the aim was technical improvement a good set of statistics to read. And a well deserved trip to Jumbos in Listowel on the way home to replace the energy used saw team spirits rise.

This meant that the level of competition was superb. Every event was packed with National Champions, International and Olympic standard swimmers.

For Askeaton Swimming Club and its competitors this meet was about exposure to high level swimming and there was plenty of that over the weekend.
