The Elk Valley Dolphins Swim Club Invitational was a major success for TREX. For many of the athletes, this was their first travel meet with the team away from mom and dad so there were a few homesick kids the first day but by Sunday all the kids were enjoying their independence and getting into the Dino spirit. The athletes had a chance to get a bit of down time at the hotel on Saturday and were able to have some fun in the hotel pool and hot tub. As well as enjoying beautiful Fernie, the kids swam extremely fast! Highlights include a few new meet records for the boys:
