Annual General Meeting 2014

 
The AGM for Sutton in Ashfield Swimming Club is this year taking place at the Grosvenor Rooms at 1900hrs Monday 19th May 2014.
 
All swimmers, parents and members are entitled to attend.
 
The SSC Committee page provides further information regarding the business that will be conducted at the AGM.
 
The nomination forms to elect committee members for next year can be downloaded from the same page but must be emailed to the Chair or handed to the paying-in desk before 28th April 2014 to then be passed to our Secretary Alison Hudson. It should be noted that only members of the club that are aged 18yrs or over are permitted to propose or second these nominations.
 
Likewise any issues that members want resolving at the AGM need to be documented and returned to Alison Hudson by the same closing date of 28th April 2014. The AGM will not permit any issues to be discussed that have not been raised in advance of this closing date.
 
It would also be helpful if anyone intending to attend the AGM could let Andrew Quinn know so that we can ensure adequate seating arrangements exist for the AGM.

  Website visitors

Visitor numbers to the Sutton SC website are growing all the time. For those of you who, like me, are fascinated with stats, why not watch the cumulative visitor count on this page. Both Darren Harding and Ryan Hawley have claimed to be our 60,000th visitor, and provided screen-shot evidence. Not sure how to call this, but I'll have to come up with a solution before this gets ugly :-)

National Champion is Crowned

Sutton Swimming Club's Ruslans Golubs competed in the Latvian Winter National Short Course Championships on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd February 2014.

14yr old Ruslans enjoyed tremendous success considering that all events were Open Age Group winners. Ruslans swam a massive Personal Best time in the 800m Freestyle event of 8 minutes 42.85 seconds to be crowned the overall National Champion
Ruslans also took a Silver medal in the 400m Individual Medley event with another PB of 4 minutes 43.92 seconds.
To complete the full set of medals Ruslans also won a Bronze medal for his efforts in the 200m Butterfly event in a time of 2.14.91.  
Ruslans swam every event in his Sutton Swimming Club cap which resulted in the Clubs chairman receiving an e-mail enquiry about how to join the Club from a Latvian based swimmer who had seen Ruslans perform and wanted to join his Club.
All at Sutton SC are proud of Ruslans who is pictured with his 3 medals.
