Hi All,

Congratulations to all our Tshwane Masters Swimmers that took part in Budapest.   You really made our name and country proud. Special mention to Harald for coming back as No. 1 in the World, winning his 50 Backstroke in his age group.  Excellent!  Well done all.  More about that will appear in the next SAMS Newsletter.

I am attaching the Coelacanth 1500 Swim Entry form.  Those who can help with time-keeping at 8 when we start we will really appreciate it.  Bring along you fellow swimmers and friends and family.   Hillcrest  is back in working order, not the heater though, but it will be warm by the 30th September.  We were there today 6/9/2017 and already the temp is up to 20 degrees. 

Also attaching the results of the Frostbite 2 and 3, plus the Gauteng Short Course Champs results.

Thank you to all those who participated in the Winter Challenge, we will know this week if we reached the R6,000 mark for Irene Homes.  This result will also be in the SAMS Summer Newsletter.

There is a gala invite for those who would rather do a sprint at Ellis Park, but do your best to support our own 1500 swim at Hillcrest on the 30th September.

Hi All,

We are back safely from the Berg and Durban, had a great time with the family.  

August has come to an end and David A will be finalizing the amount that has to go to Irene Homes from the Winter Challenge swims.  Thanks to all that did their swim and for those who donated towards  this cause.  We had to hold the swim at the Tuks Pool because of Hillcrest being closed.  Hillcrest Pool has  reopened on the 1st September but the heating system has to be repaired, so the water is still cold.  Hopefully by the 30th September when we hold the Coelacanths 1500 it would have warmed up.  Keep you all informed.

Just to let you know that the Organiszing Committee for champs have had successful meetings so far.  A major sponsorship is still needed, so if anyone has any company or friend with a business that might be able to assist with a sponsorship,  please let us know and we will send you the covering sponsorship letter for you to go and approach them.

I am including the prices for adverts in the Nationals Programme, available below.  If you could possibly  try and get any company, business,  B & B's, hotels, Retail outlets, banks, Fast Food  etc,  to place an advert in the programme, this will help towards the cost of printing the programme.


Summer has arrived, time to jump in the water and start your season if you havent already been  in the water. 

Coelacanths 1500,  30th September. Hillcrest.  Entires to go out soon.
Sun City on the 21st October, entries are open.
SAMS Short Course Champs on the 28th. 
October, at Wahoo Pool.

Keep well  and keep swimming.

Hi All,

We had a beautiful warm (more like summer) day at Tuks Pool on Saturday.  Unfortunately  it seems a lot of members were away or had other arrangements on the day.  We still had 19 swimmers in a warm 27degrees pool who came along and did their Challenge.  Thank you all and all those who helped with prizes and gazebos and Cheryl taking the entries. 

We are unfortuntely way under our target of R6,000.00 for Irene Homes for the Mentally disabled.  So far we have only collected R4,550.00.  I do know that there are still some of our members that are going to do the Winter 1 hour (or as long as you like) in the own time before the end of August.  Please remember to send me your completed form.  Deposit into the Tshwane Account.  If you are injured and would like to still donate, by all means please do.  I have attached the Individual form once again for all.

Thank you to Annemarie who encouraged her swimmers in her squad to take part.  So far she has gathered 15 swimmers = R1,500.00.  Awesome!!


Come on all take the plunge for charity!

Speak soon.
