Notices

The named hats have arrived and are £6 each. If you are racing this weekend please find Julie Strover either at Top Squad training this evening or at the Kents over the weekend. If you are not racing this weekend please get yours from Steve on Monday. There are lots and altogether they are heavy so Julie won't be carrying more than is necessary. Please pay Steve for your hat on Monday so that Julie doesn't have to carry a load of cash around. A big thank you to Julie for taking delivery and passing them out. Good luck to all those wearing them this weekend.
We are very excited to announce the launch of new Orpington Ojays Club kit. The captains and committee have worked collaboratively to select this kit so that it is both practical and comfortable for poolside wear. We are strongly encouraging all competitive squads from Bronze to Top to purchase this kit so that when swimmers are representing their club that they are well presented in team colours. As a one-off incentive to encourage the purchase of this kit the club will be subsidising the purchase of the t-shirt and shorts set by 50%. Full costs are £23 for the shirt and £20 for the shorts. We have some samples of the sizing's for the age groups which will be available at the Walnuts via Lorraine on the following evenings if you wish to take a look before you order. • Monday 6.15pm - 8.15pm • Tuesday 7pm - 9pm • Wednesday 6.30pm - 9pm Please complete the attached order form and hand into Lorraine or the club shop by Monday 21st January 2019 (payment of £21.50 to be paid directly to Orpington Ojays Bank account) Ref KIT & SWIMMERS NAME Delivery will take around 8 weeks from order Shirts - Name will be on the right (opp the club logo) Shorts - Name will be under the club logo
Tickets are now on sale for our annual presentation evening being held on Friday 1st March at Crofton Hall in Orpington. Those of you who attended last year will remember this is not only an opportunity for parents and swimmers to have some fun but also a time for us to celebrate the successes of our swimmers over the year and to award all our swimmers who competed in our latest annual gala with their trophy. This was a very popular event last year and with so many swimmers competing, these tickets will be in high demand and due to hall restrictions tickets are to be sold on a first come first served basis. Michelle will be at Walnuts on Monday evening and at various locations and times over the next few weeks so please see her to purchase your tickets at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment as we can not make exceptions if numbers are exceeded. Tickets will be priced at £5 each or £20 per swim family. Crofton has a licensed bar, and as well as various activities throughout the evening the photo booth will be back by popular demand.
