8 down, 2 to go. Turkey Series 2014 has flown by!.
Next weekend 20th/21st are the last 2 Turkey Swims. Both days are 3pm, with Saturday at Myrtleville and Sunday in Sandycove.
As we have had such a great turnout this year, we have good funds for prizes, so the ‘Turkey Committee’ have decided to donate your money from the last weekend of swimming to the local RNLIs. So bring your €2 as usual, and on Saturday the money collected will go to Crosshaven RNLI and on Sunday the collected money will be given to Kinsale RNLI. If you are still swimming in the sea, you are aware of the chilly, lumpy, changeable conditions, so these volunteers keeping people safe at sea are braver souls than us, any little bit we can give the RNLI will be gratefully received.
In the meantime we have bought what we need for the Spot Prizes (Butcher Vouchers, The Edge Vouchers, Wine, Beer, Chocolate, Furry Socks etc.) and as we have a lot of prizes we are going to evenly split the draw over 2 days so we don’t take forever on the Sunday going though prizes. Everyone who has signed in for the first 8 Turkey Swims are in the draw, we did come up with a maximum of 3 prizes per person though, in the season of good spirit and all that, sharing is caring etc!. After the 3pm Swim (about 4pm) we will draw names, if you are not there you will have until the end January to claim them from Carol or Angela. After that period, there is no guarantee that the drink or chocolates will be intact! 🙂
We hope to see many of you next weekend for a bit of swimming craic, break out the christmas swim suits, bring your warm drinks, and don’t forget some tasty nibbles to share afterwards, and most of all swim smart & stay safe 🙂
