On 18th May it was time for the first Blackpool Polar Bears Club Gala 2014. Our theme for this gala was the “World Cup” - what could be more topical?!?
We split these events into two parts according to swimmers ability, and Gala 1 in the morning had 36 members taking part.
Gala 2 from 12 noon to 1.30pm had 34 members taking part, all for fun and to recognise effort and achievement.
What a result!!! 36 personal best times were recorded! Big CONGRATULATIONS to all who took part! All members came away with three medals each – an important recognition of the effort each and every one puts in.
A big “thanks” goes to Sainsburys (Red Bank Road) for donating sport relief goods and fruit for all members for this event. Contributions from local businesses are a real help and very much appreciated.
