Shark diving

well done to our coach Susan Grant and her sister, Carol Thomson (Masters Squad BASC), at their shark dive at Deep Sea World, South Queensferry. 

 

"This is something that's been on our bucket list for a while so decided to take the plunge for our special birthday this year.  We were in the water for around 25 minutes with 7 sand tiger sharks and other fish, including sting rays and smaller sharks. Was a bit scary, in particular getting used to the breathing gear and weights to keep us at the bottom of the tank, but had a wonderful time once we were in the big tank."

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Bo`ness ASC runs solely on the personal time given up by parents and guardians through the committee or volunteering.

We have a few positions on the committee that are vacant and we need to have these filled as soon as possible to safeguard the future of the club.

This is a plea to all of you. If you have any spare time to give to all the swimmers within the Club, please make yourself known.

Remember, the more volunteers we have the less work/time is required!

We need volunteers to step forward for Meat Managers, Level 1 Graded Coach or you simply want to be a poolside helper.

If you can help the swimmers and the club – Please let us know.

Competitions

After the busy start to the year, the competition calendar finally eased off to allow the Scottish National Age Group Championship 2019 (SNAGS) to take place at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre on the 27th – 31st of March. We had the fantastic achievement of two of our Gold Squad swimmers, Gregor Skinner and Samuel Beetham, being selected to join the F.I.R.S.T Squad to take part in some of the SNAGS relays.

Bo`ness ASC was also well represented in the F.I.R.S.T squad with some amazing swims again…

Here are a few of our swimmer’s poolside before the races began.

Front row – Samuel Beetham & Ellie Hamilton

General

Dear All,

It has been a busy start to the 2019 for Bo`ness ASC and as it`s been a few months since our last Newsletter, a lot has happened.

The new WhatsApp groups are working well and the changes in swimmers attending competitions is slowly bedding in..

We have also placed an order for the purchase of new backstroke flags for the Recreation Centre Pool. The faded, rather tatty existing flags will be replaced with ones more appropriate for a high achieving sports club. Sticking with the club’s colours of gold, red and black, the following design will soon be seen:

With the new backstroke starting block and flags, all swimmers should be achieving huge backstroke PB`s from now on!

BASC Annual General Meeting

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!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

A final note, Bo`ness ASC runs solely on the personal time given up by parents and guardians through the committee or volunteering. Without their help, the club would cease to exist and our children would not be able to progress as a swimmer and an athlete.

This is a plea to all that if you have any spare time to give to the our children within the Club, please make yourself known. We are always in need of more people on the committee (remember, the more we have the less work/time is required!) and/or you just want to help the coach’s poolside, this again is a great help. And you never know, you may enjoy it rather than just sitting and watching!
