Suggested date: Sunday 4 November 2012 with back-up alternative 11 November 2012 (observing Remembrance Sunday, 2 minute silence).
11:00 Swim from Shore Road
We will confirm lunch venue shortly but please make a note of the date in your diaries.
Starting at Fishermans Walk, east of Boscombe at 7am and finishing adjacent to the main car park at Sandbanks (not Shore Road), estimated 10am to 11am.
This is an informal members only swim – no taster swimmers. A staggered start may be used to let swimmers all finish at about the same time.
It is very important that each swimmer provides their own beach walker. The beach walker will be responsible for transporting the swimmer’s clothing. It is advisable for the beach walker to carry warm refreshments and fresh water for the swimmer.
Please register your interest in this informal swim with Bob Holman (email@example.com). Further details will be provided direct soon.
Anyone willing to assist with the organisation / administration on the day should also contact Bob Holman.
So, it’s all over. The closing ceremony capped Britain’s most successful Games in more than a century. We will have to sit tight and wait for the start of the Paralympics on 29 August 2012 to fill the void and with record ticket sales already realised, it is sure to be the greatest Paralympics of them all. We hope you, like our club members, have been gripped by Olympic fever and have been thrilled, excited and enthused for sport once more.
You’re invited to have fun, try something new and celebrate where it starts for every great athlete – at your local club. Contact Gerry Griffin to join us a taster session (Gerry-Wareham2003@hotmail.co.uk).
Sunday 15 July 2012. Meet 09.30 for 10.00 sharp start at Durdle Door car park.

This year we have decided to bring forward our annual Christmas awards lunch and make it an end of season get-together. This avoids the seasonal rush and hopefully more of you will be able to come.
The date for your diaries is Sunday 23 October 2011 and the lunch will be at 1pm at Loch Fyne Restaurant, 47 Haven Road, Poole. Click to download the restaurant’s current menu which may change as Loch Fyne specialises in fish in season.
We need to give the restaurant an idea of numbers so please book your places with Bob Holman NOW (firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ann and Thomas McGrath would like to thank all who attended and donated to the charity non-wetsuit evening at EDOWSC on 9 August 2011:
“It was a lovely evening with a superb table of food and wine. To all those who left their comfort blanket at home, I am proud of you all for joining in the fun and trembling afterwards. Watching the wine jump out of the cups was quite entertaining!
“But on a more serious note a big THANK YOU for the generous donations. A total of £107 was received for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. Many thanks to everyone for their support”
Anne, Tom, Caroline and Dee are swimming the Channel to raise funds for the Air Ambulance service.
They are holding a fund raising French evening on Monday 1 August 2011 at the Larder House, Southbourne from 7pm to Midnight. There will be French food, French Singing, French dancers and a BIG BIG raffle. The cost is £25.00 per person of which £10.00 will go direct to the Charity of Air Ambulance.
And to support their swim and their fundraising, our club swim session on Tuesday 9 August 2011 will be a non wetsuit swim – no exceptions. And for those who dont normally wear wetsuits, well – it could even be fancy dress. There will be refreshments afterwards.
Back by public demand, our famous swim trek along the Dorset coast will take place on 7 August 2011. We will start from the car park by The Square and Compass between 9.30 and 10am latest.
If you were unable to join in last year, take a look at some of the wonderful photos of the day.
Bob is changing the route slightly this year. It will be a whole day again, but of course you can dip in and out as you wish.
