Mandurah Masters Swimming Club officially invites all member fillies, colts, mares, stallions and geldings to nominate for the fourth running of the 2019 Doddi's Dash on Saturday 7th December - the race that stops a very small section of Halls Head!
For those new to the Club, Doddi's Dash is a 1 km Handicap Race, where the faster you can swim the later you start. Conversely, the slower you swim (or more money you pay the handicappers) the bigger the head start you get on the rest. This is all about the honour of winning and adding your name to the Barb Pellick Pertual Golden Goggles Trophy list of suspicous winners; Peter King, Steve Crake and Sarah Denny
Prior to the running of Doddi's Dash, the "Fashions on the Foreshore" parade will held. This is not an event for the feint hearted. Who could forget Pres. Deb setting the standard last year with a montage of unforgetable performances. Last year the theme was the letter "M", this year's theme will be announced in the coming weeks.
As per last year, all the festivities and Dash start will take place from a base on the foreshore at the Robert Point (west) end of Doddi's Beach, Halls Head Parade, Halls Head.
Doddi's Dash is actually the second part of a trifecta of fun, fitness and friendship. The third installment is the Club Christmas Picnic which will start immediately after the excitment of the running of the 2019 Doddi's Dash. BYO drinks and BBQ. The Club will supply sweets.
Just when too much fun is not enough we can expect a visit by a non-gender specific Santa Clause.
Of course the cherry on the cake is this year we hope to raise even more money than last year to donate to Dot's Place Cancer Support Centre.
