Officials and Helpers
   o   A huge amount of help from parents/friends is needed to run a successful Championship.
   o   Throughout the five sessions we need Officials (Timekeepers, Judges, Starters, Recorders etc)
       and also require help with Marshalling, Equipment, Swim Shop etc.
   o   Co-ordination of the Tea Table over the two days will depend on sufficient parent help.
       Contributions of home baking will be most welcome.
                     Please contact Tanya Macleod at
                               or indicate on the form if you can help.

       Club Championships period and this will be advised through the normal channels nearer
       the time.
