The latest Open Meet saw a record 50 BASC kids travel to take part in the. Bramcote SC Open Meet over 3 sessions – so a very long day rather than a weekend.
The event is age at the 24/11/19 – so this weekend the benefit was towards those born January to May – the top 6 in each event were given a medal/trophy – with the age groups being ages 10,11,12,13,14 plus. As kids from around Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire attempt to get county times this was a hotly contested meet – the meet this year was over subscribed before its closing date. A number of the kids had represented the club in the Staffs League Final the night before – so special thanks go to all parents for dedicating so much of their weekend to swimming!!!!
Open meet debuts went to Thomas Hollis, Evie Harvey, Olivia Standley, Edward Frost, Evie Ellard, Toby Durkan, Dorothy Arcber and Josephine Brutton.
All of the kids had a really great day cheering each other on – plus 84 MEDALS was a record for a one day meet and 82 PB times despite so many races having been swam at Cannock the night before and set PBs galore at the club champs a week earlier.
