Next came the most improved swimmer trophies which were presented by Roger. The first to be awarded was to Clair. Clair is not only a regular swimmer, she is often the first to sort ropes and has been active on the committee. She was recognised for her determination to return to swimming following injury and achieving great improvement in the pool over the last year.
Cor was the second recipient of this award. Often the first in the pool and never missing a session. Cor has made fantastic improvements this year, moving steadily up through the lanes. Very well done to both swimmers!
After a raffle and drinks break, the refreshed teams moved onto some tricky challenges in an attempt to win more stars for their team. Dextrous use of chopsticks moving nuts proved more difficult than it looked but was largely achievable, but biscuit balancing proved nearly impossible - it was great fun to watch though! With balloon races, ping pong ball bouncing and paper plane flying the stars were building for all the teams but there could only be one winning team - well done to Joelie, Rod, Roger and Clair.
Thank-you to everyone for joining in, taking on new challenges and making it a memorable fun evening.
