Miami Masters has a very active social committee that ensures the Fun keeps up with Friendship and Fitness. Every Saturday, after training, we assemble at “Lane 11” (our clubhouse) where nibbles are supplied and members have a chance to catch up and get to know each other. The Burleigh Bears Footy clubhouse is next door and swimmers often adjourn there when “Lane 11” closes for a pleasant Saturday evening chat or birthday celebration. The occasional winter sausage sizzle is something to look forward to as we work through the training routine.
Our major social function of the year is our Awards Presentation Dinner which is always well attended. This highlight event recognizes the achievements of many of our Club members, not only competitively, but in their support and participation in Club activities. Music, dancing, good food and wine guarantee a great evening.
A regular winter activity is our soup and trivia night where participants enjoy a little friendly rivalry and test their retention skills and knowledge.
Over the years, members have participated in theatre outings, golf days, barefoot bowls, beach barbeques and karaoke nights. For those who feel swimming is not enough exercise, we quite regularly organise bush walks and occasionally, camping weekends. A few cycling enthusiasts will take to the roads for an occasional fun outing.
For the early risers, every year we man an Aid Station at the Gold Coast Marathon which is a great opportunity to be part of the spirit and raise funds for the Club.
New ideas for the Social activities in our Club are appreciated and we welcome newcomers with open arms.
