Great last day - very hard session this morning, 4050 metres in a 90 minute session, followed by a walk in fantastic weather up the Orme to the Toboggan run, and a gala
ps. success!!! not lost a child to home or managed to break anyone today.
Well one swimmer gone home tonight – very sad with a fractured arm, Poor Libby Manning, so disappointed. She was winning all girls in the running race and took a nasty tumble.
Other than the above, an uneventful day. Two hard training sessions and one hard land work.
Team Dingle winning the internal competition, final event tomorrow.
Scores after 3 events:
After a journey of 3 trains and 1 bus ride everyone was pleased to see the Youth Hostel.
As usual a challenging first 24 hours while swimmers settle down, on the night of day 2, most kids settled into the lounge with a nice box of celebrations talking about the day. A lot of ‘banter’ going on, and the Carus McDonald boys getting very close and friendly – been renamed ‘Chuckle Brothers’.
End of the first day training, and it seems to have tired the kids out. A game of football which first game ended 4-1 and the second game 6-6, Dan saved a penalty taken by his brother that stopped them winning!!
Paul Kirk has won the bowling for the first time in history, but it was a close call to the final bowl, with Emma and Maureen very close behind.
Due to the majority of Teachers who run the sessions at Calderstones School being on a Swim Camp the following sessions on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th October have had to be cancelled.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
