Thanks so much to all the parents and children who came along to the presentation night and made it such a fun evening. Everyone entered into the spirit of the night and it was great to see the kids all getting on so well, and having a good laugh. (thanks especially to the Johnston boys for getting the party started with some very energetic dance moves). It was brilliant to watch all the parents dancing, too, especially the dad dancing … Continue reading →

What an excellent evening we had last night with our inter-club competition against Haddington, who brought along a good number of members to see how Charlie Summers would judge the ten prints and ten projected images per club.

The standard of the entries were very high and the majority of the images were awarded 17 points, ending in only 6 points between the clubs in respect of the print images.
However Musselburgh edged ahead with the projected images and ‘won the evening’.

Owing to the high standard  it is now nice to hear about what a judge likes about the images rather than a multitude of obvious areas which need improving.
Charlie did manage to give pointers where some could be improved but I think that he found the task some what challenging.So our thanks go to him for all the work he put in and hope that he will agree to come again sometime in the future.

Next week we have ‘An evening with the Musselburgh Art Club’  this is not a competition but Del will comment on the art work and how our images reflect art.
Following my e mail of yesterday, please bring along one of your images that can be selected for this exercise. As this is not a competition it does not matter if
you have used it in other comps. or want to use it next year, the more ‘arty’ the image the better.

We are waiting to hear how many are coming from the Art Club, so we might use the room 32 next week, so if you find no lights on in our usual room keep going up the corridor.

Thanks to all those swimmers who regularly come on Sundays. Numbers are up on a regular basis since we cut the session to one hour, from 8.45am-9.45am. However, there are still a lot of swimmers that we never see on Sunday. We understand that many children have other activities – football, rugby, gymnastics, etc – and that it is sometimes a challenge for parents to get motivated first thing on a Sunday morning! But if you can get your kids … Continue reading →

The presentation night is in less than two weeks – on Friday February 24th – so everyone should be getting their tickets now. Even if you think your child hasn’t won a trophy through the club championship, there will be special awards on the night, so let’s see most of our swimmers and their families come along. Thanks to those who have bought tickets already. If you haven’t just ask at the desk – it is only £5 for a … Continue reading →

What a night! The Musselburgh team produced a brilliant performance to win the third round of the Coverdale Cup in their home pool. Our young swimmers all did the club proud as they dived, swam and turned superbly to triumph over Haddington, Tranent and Portobello. Musselburgh scored 197 points, almost 20 points ahead of Haddington with Tranent very close behind. The fourth and final gala of the cup between the clubs will be held at Tranent at the end of … Continue reading →
