BURNET FRASER DEVELOPMENT MEET.

Good luck to our Fairymead swimmers swimming at the Burnet Fraser Development meet this weekend. This is a great meet for our up and coming champions. So good luck swimmers, and don’t forget to wear your club shirt and cap. A big thank you also goes out to many of our swimmers not swimming at this carnival. They are actually running the carnival and the adults are assisting. What a great experience for everyone! GO FAIRYMEAD!

QLd State Champs update.

Look out Qld, here comes Fairymead!
As a club, we had some pretty awesome swims on relay day. Many of our juniors swam enormous PB’s and came so close to medaling. It was a fun day and a great experience for all who attended. Some of our swimmers also made Wide Bay Relay teams. Wide Bay did really well bringing home an amazing 12 medals. And YES, some of those medals were brought home by our Fairymead swimmers! A big congratulations goes out to ALL swimmers!

Individually, we are doing well with all swimmers doing amazing PB’s and feeling the success of their hard work. A number of swimmers have made finals and have been very pleased with their swims. Kyle Rethamel swam an amazing 200 fly to take the silver medal….and what a race it was! Well done Kyle.

We have many mores swims to come yet, and I am sure a few more medals will come our way. Best of luck for the rest of the week swimmers. We are ALL cheering!

We have a bus load of swimmers going down to Brisbane for the State Relay Day on Saturday. This is an awesome day and something I am sure all swimmers will remember! Relay Day is about team work, and is a lot of fun. I am sure the bus trip down and back will be be terrific too. To all of our swimmers travelling to Brisbane next Saturday, we wish you the best of luck. I am sure the Fairymead Green and Gold will be noticed! A big Good luck also to our senior swimmers staying on in Brisbane to compete in individual events the following week.

City of Charm……what a Carnival!

WOW! What a weekend. Thank you to all of our Fairymead families for helping out with the immense task of running this carnival. Without your help, City of Charm just wouldn’t happen. This year’s carnival was a huge success. The competition was fierce and our swimmers shone. PB’s came thick and fast, medals were won and records fell. The names of Fairymead swimmers were ringing out loud and clear. Well Done Fairymead. Both our swimmers and parents deserve a big pat on there back. Thank You!
