Alice Dauncey Gala
What a fantastic result for us in a very exciting gala, all the swimmers swam exceptionally well resulting in a win for the club. This is even more exceptional when you realise that at the point announcement at event 36 we were 40 points behind the leading team  - so turned round a 40 point deficit in 13 events.
I have included the results and for those that want to see how it all unfolded the scoring sheet from the host club (these will also be on the web site soon).
Very well done to all the swimmers competing for us, the trophy you all helped will will be at club night on Friday, before taking up its place in our trophy cabinet.
