Hugh Sellars from the BASC Masters Squad had a very successful trip down to the Lake District to compete in the Great North Swim over the weekend of June 10th. The Great North Swim is the UK’s biggest open water swim event and an estimated 10,000 people were predicted to take to the water over the three day festival on Lake Windermere.
We will be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on the 9th May 2019 at 6.15pm in the GP Room at Bo'ness Recreation Centre (off the café).
In accordance, please find attached the Notice of AGM, the Agenda for the AGM, the Minutes of the last AGM and the Notice of proposed changes to our Constitution, By-laws and Regulations which will be posted on our noticeboard.
We hope to see as many as possible of you at the AGM, in fact, by the constitution we need a minimum number for it to be "quorate"! In all seriousness, it is vital to the survival of the club that parents or guardians get involved as we are entirely run by volunteers. Please come along and show your support.
If you have a few hours to spare on a regular basis we would love to hear from you. And many roles can be shared by two volunteers to make the load lighter.
See you then!
