The draw will take place at Kirkby Leisure Centre at 8:00pm on Monday 2nd April. In order to enter this draw you must be a fully paid up member of the club.   Rules that club members must abide by for entry to this draw are explained below.

Some members of the club are families, in which case all of the individual members of the family, who are members of the club, and who have an ASA number, can enter the draw. It also means some of the younger swimmers in the teaching group can also enter the draw but the parents of the young swimmer would go to the Olympics (instead of the swimmer).   If you wish to take part in the draw then you are required to confirm your interest by Email to:   BEFORE Thursday 29th March 2012.
