Dumfries Advent Meet
Last month, over the weekend of 25th and 26th November Dumfries ASC held their annual advent meet at Sir Matt Busby Sport Centre in Bellshill due to DG1 being closed for repairs. Thank you to North Lanarkshire Leisure Centre.
Fifteen clubs from across Scotland attended and over 290 swimmers swam over the course of the weekend, Each swimmer received an advent calendar as a wee gift from the club. This meet is always a fast and fun packed weekend with swimmers looking to get P.B’s or that all important qualifying time for SNAGS.
DASC had 27 swimmers at the meet aged from 11 to 17 years. They achieved 38 medals in total; 15 gold, 15 silver and 8 bronze. This was Anthony Ryan’s first competition as head coach, he even managed a cheeky win on the tombola which was run to raise funds for the club.
Thanks go to Kathleen Procter whose fabulous hard work made the event so successful.
We are also grateful to our sponsors: Mark and Yvonne Watret, Harkness Plumbing & Heating Ltd., Sophie Dodd, Jim and Catherine McSeveney, John & Gail Haugh along with all the parents and helpers who donated their time, tombola prizes and baking.
Special mention also goes to Luke Scott, age 10 for being Santa’s little helper over the weekend!
