Fairymead’s Winter Short Couse Meet has traditionally been held over the middle weekend of the June July school holidays except for 2008 when we moved to the first weekend of the holidays.
Our program consists of 1500m,800m,400m,200m,100m and 50m & 25m shortcourse events. Age groups are combined and time trials are held at the end of each day. The meet begins with the first event at 1pm on the Saturday allowing plenty of time for travel. Saturdays last event is around 5.45pm. Sunday kicks of with an 8.30am start and concludes about 12.30pm with our ever exciting Dash for Cash events.
The Bundaberg Swim Academy offers a great venue with competition in the indoor 25m heated pool allowing the outdoor heated 25m pool to be used for warm up/down. The club runs a great BBQ menu with all profit going to swimmer support.
What makes our winter meet so special – you can watch a young swimmer swimming for the first time along with a someone qualifying for National Shortcourse. It’s a friendly, happy and well organised meet.
We look forward to seeing you at our wonderful winter meet next year.
