Mackay and Whitsunday Life

From Rubber Ducks And Candy To Medals

The Pioneer Swimming Club travelled to Proserpine last Saturday, for the Whitsunday Swimming Club Transition Meet.  Quite the contingent of Dolphins enjoyed the small but mighty event.

This small country carnival sure packed a lot into the day.  Highlights for our swimmers included receiving a token rubber duck if a swimmer won their heat, mystery relays where swimmers from all clubs were randomly chosen to form teams in a hotly contested relay, a candy shop for the sweet tooth amongst us and the mouthwatering snow cones to enjoy and cool down with in the increasing heat.

Our swimmers did not disappoint with the medal tally and personal bests achieved.  Many left with quite the loot and massive smiles to boot!  We can’t thank Whitsunday Swimming Club enough for hosting such a great meet.
