Today Lindy and I were able to speak with Matthew Isbister (Miami Aquatic Centre Manager) and he has confirmed that the new pool is due to open on Saturday 8th May and that there will be an official opening held on Saturday 15th May. Some implications for us would be:
We start our winter training time of 3pm from Saturday 8th May when pool space will no longer be an issue
We will not be able to have our AGM on the afternoon of 15th May due to the official opening. Also the following weekend (22nd May) coincides with the Great Barrier Reef Masters Games. Is Sunday 16th May a suitable date for the AGM - say 10.30am before Endurance swimming at 11.30am? Please comment. As soon as we have a date I can contact the pool to make a booking.
Izzy acknowledged that our Club should be involved in the official opening. We could possibly be involved in the mini meet which is being planned for the day involving 4 junior clubs. Maybe a demo relay event or assist with timekeeping, or ???. We need to get our suggestions in asap.
I would like to let members know of the new pool opening date and winter training time commencement as soon as possible. Next Committee meeting Our next meeting is scheduled for Saturday 24 April (2pm; i.e. before 3:45pm training) and the draft minutes of the last meeting are attached. Regards, Wendy
