2019 Xmas Cracker Swim Meet




To Stingrays Parents,


Many of you are familiar with our X’mas Sprint meet and potluck event that we annually hold.  This year, Head Coach David Pool and his team had planned on an expanded X’MAS CRACKER ANNUAL SWIM MEET scheduled for December 7th and 8th to include our Stingrays’ swimmers as well as local and overseas teams.  Given the current state of affairs in Hong Kong, many of the overseas teams are now unable to travel to Hong Kong.  Thus, we have decided to slim down this meet to only one day, December 7th, and invite local teams in Hong Kong to join our meet.

In order to keep the costs down and make this a successful event, we will be asking parents to volunteer with marshalling, timekeeping, running the control console, etc.  We will also need your help in supporting with a “potluck” lunch and refreshments.  Please be on the lookout for future signups.

The X’MAS CRACKER ANNUAL SWIM MEET has been a fun tradition of the Stingrays for many years and we want to ensure that this year is no exception; that our swimmers, parents and coaches all have a great start to the Festive Season.

Thank you.
