DESPITE the fact that the Myall Masters are yet to have a training session in the local community pool due to ongoing renovations, on Saturday 5 November a small but talented group of members traveled north to participate in the Port Macquarie Masters Swimming Carnival.

“With minimal pool training under their belts, our team of five came seventh overall in a field of sixteen teams,” said Chris Dunning, Myall Masters.

“This small but enthusiastic group was led by our ever committed Club Captain, Steve Rees,” Chris said.

Masters members Linda Stubbs and Chris Lock performed at their usual high standard, with Chris finishing overall second in his age division and Linda equal first in her age group.

Mark Hill, concentrating on freestyle events, placed second in his 200m freestyle race.

New club member Derek O’Neill recorded spectacularly good results, achieving two firsts (50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke) and one second (100m Breaststroke).

“We hope he will be available for as many future events as possible,” Chris said.

Club captain Steve Rees said, “It was a great day and lots of fun was had by all.

“On behalf of Myall Masters, congratulations to you all on living the Masters’ ethos of ‘Fun, Fitness and Friendship’.

“The whole of Myall Masters Club is looking forward to once again all getting together to continue this mission statement when our pool is finally opened!”
