President's Prattle - April 2017

What a disappointment that the new MSWA executive committee have seen fit to transfer the 2018 Nationals away from Mandurah to the usual central HBF stadium. Sitting on the sidelines to this decision making has been frustrating, but I sense the decision must now be accepted. It will be a point of discussion at the May Council of Clubs meeting. I believe that an opportunity has been missed here to focus on the “Object” of MSWA and concentrate on “Fitness, Fun and Friendship”.

I am pleased to report that the Committee has nominated our Life Member Gerry Green for this years Master’s Swimming WA “Perc Edwards: Volunteer of the year Award.” Gerry has been a consistent contributor to the Club since its inception and the work done since his Life Membership has not slowed down. We are grateful for his input and hopeful of another win in this category as he deserves it! (Wayne is a past winner and Ken a past national winner)
