Following the postponement of the Club AGM on 5 Feb we are proposing to hold a pre-season social event on Tuesday 28 March at 7pm at the Coach & Horses, Wimborne which will include the AGM, a short briefing on ideas and events for the new swimming season, followed by a game of skittles to round off the evening.
Update 30 Jan 2017: Unfortunately we have to postpone the AGM due to insufficient numbers for the orginal booking. We will update members shortly on an alternative venue but the provisional date will be 28 Mar 2017. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
We encourage as many of you as possible to come along and celebrate the successes of last year and share your feedback. And we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers with ideas which could move the club forward. Any contribution is always welcome so please don’t hold back if your time is limited and you fancy making a difference.
Post publication note: Reservations are now closed.
As in previous years, our end of season lunch on 20 November 2016 at RNLI College, Poole will be preceded by the traditional swim for those who so desire.
The lunch will be a celebration of EDOWSC’s year and swimming achievements with some serious and some light-hearted awards. It is intended to be a relaxed social gathering with time for members to mingle.
The Ocean Film Festival World Tour is coming for the first time to the Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne Minster on Tuesday 6 September 2016 and returning to the Lighthouse Theatre, Poole on Monday 24th October.
Clive Grant has provided more details on this year’s swim and trek along the Dorset coast for EDOWSC club members. With good weather it will be an ideal day for families and friends to join us and for those who are confident sea swimmers to enjoy wild swims.
Post publication note: A more detailed programme and briefing has subsequently been issued for the swims on 14 Aug 2016.
We will be running regular events and get-togethers throughout the season, including Social evenings immediately following taster sessions on 7 June, 5 July, 2 August. We will provide more details closer to each event but we hope they will provide not only nibbles and drinks but an opportunity to get to know new members and share in the fun, enjoyment and challenges of open water swimming.
Our AGM will be held on Sun 7 Feb 2016. The function room at The Junction, Broadstone has been booked from 12 to 4pm. The AGM from 1.30pm will be preceded by a finger buffet (12.15pm to 1.15pm). Following the AGM there will be a discussion and talk / video on:
– the Future of the Club
– Bob Holman’s Channel Swim
We need to confirm number of attendees who wish to eat by 20 January so please inform Gerry now.
We have received personal invitations for 10 lucky EDOWSC club members to join Seahorse Swim 2015 prize sponsors Kitbrix on a ride across the Purbecks in the afternoon of Thursday 19 November 2015 and then go straight on to their launch night and networking evening from 5pm at Rockets & Rascals, Poole.
Thanks Ali for organising the club’s 6th Swim Treck and Roger for sharing the photos in our gallery. With magical weather, clear calm seas, this year’s Iconic swims took us from Durdle Door to Man o War Bay and Lulworth Cove to Stairhole, and for the first time we were able to swim through both arches.
