Week 4, Four More Still to Go

Can you believe it – the month of July lessons is almost over! There are still a few very exciting things happening to wrap up the month: Fun Day, BINGO, the Tanker Swim and the July Gala. We hope it’s been an enjoyable first four weeks full of new memories and experiences. The first day of August lessons begins this Monday, August 2 on BC Day.



Come out and cheer on our tankers at The Point, on Saturday, July 31 at 9am. The Gala follows at the club pool with races starting after a *special celebration. Please refer to the links below for printable copies of the list of the tankers who will be swimming and for a copy of the program for the races.
