Orpington Ojays will be holding its annual general meeting AGM on Monday, 3rd July at 7:30pm and you are all invited to attend. The meeting will take place in the buzz zone at the Walnuts and is not likely to last more than 1 hour. Please note that hard copies of the attached documents will not be provided. On behalf of the Committee, we look forward to seeing you all there.
Training times for Platinum and Top squads will be amended on this evening to allow everyone the opportunity to attend; exact details will follow nearer the time.
Bexley Open (now with programme)
Please note that programs for the open will be available to download from Bexley SC website and from here when available. They will not be sold at the open.
Swimmers must sign in at least 55 minutes before the start of each session in which they wish to take part. Swimmers must only sign themselves in. Heat start lists will be posted by the swim down the pool. Swimmers are advised to check the lists, prior to the event being swum. It is the swimmer’s responsibility to ensure that their name appears on the heat start list. Any competitor not reporting in time may be excluded. The organizers reserve the right to amend the running orders of events should it be necessary.
During the warm up, swimmers and Coaches must ensure that they (and swimmers in their charge) take no action that would endanger themselves or others. The instructions of the pool lifeguards or others in authority must be obeyed immediately. Any swimmers in the swim down pool must be supervised by a Coach or Club representative. If this is not adhered to this facility may be withdrawn.
Everyone attending the event must familiarize themselves with the location of the emergency exits, which must be kept clear at all times. Anyone observing anything they consider to be a safety hazard must report it to one of the meet director’s representatives.
The organizers and the pool management reserve the right to remove any swimmer or spectator from the pool area whose behaviour is either against the pool rules or the efficient running of the meet. Stewards will be patrolling the sports centre and anyone found causing damage or seriously misbehaving, will be banned from the meet and refused entry to the building.
No Bags (except Coaches bags) are allowed on poolside at any time. There are plenty of lockers available. Lockers cost £1 and this is refundable after every visit. Neither Bexley Swimming Club nor the pool management will be held responsible for the property that is lost.
Competitors and spectators are asked to place all litter in the bins provided and not to leave it on the floor, particularly in the spectator gallery, where it may become a safety hazard.
Here are a couple of dates to note down for July. On the 2nd we will be getting together for a summer BBQ at Pratts Bottom Village Hall and on the 14th we will be hosting a quiz night at Badgers Mount Hall. More details to follow.
Sadly all Tadpole sessions today have been cancelled due to Biggin Hill pool being closed. Apologies for this late cancellation.
