Masters swimmers in the wins away from home

SWIMMING: A handful of Clarence River representatives were on the highway recently chasing glory at the Port Macquarie Masters Swim Carnival.

It was a steaming day with strong wind gusts on the mid-north coast but the usual enthusiasm and friendship ensured an enjoyable event.

Also attending for re-accreditation as a race starter was Bob Wattus and his wife, Robyn, who spent the day timekeeping to ensure swimmers were correctly recorded.

The club extended a huge thank you to these generous, community-minded people.

Also undertaking their first of three training sessions as racesarters were Ken Adams and Bobby Winger.

Having these men get their accreditation will be of great benefit to our local club in holding future carnivals.

The Clarence River club came in sixth out of 20 clubs.

Lyn Eke, Bobbie Winger and Matthew Eke all took out bronze medals in their age groups. Gai Pritchett 8th, Judy King 7th, Ken Adams 6th and Jim Wheeler first.

Not a bad effort for one of the first carnivals on the Masters calendar this year.
