Campbell River Eliminator Invitational 2017

After a 3 hour drive up Island, the Pacific Coast Swimmers had a good first day in Campbell River. Arran Robertson (12) was the sole representative for the club –and all swimmers at the meet- in the boy’s 1500 freestyle. Known more for his breastroke than his distance freestyle, Robertson had a goal of being around 24:00. Just prior to the start of the race, CRKW swimmer Melayna Beaudin decided to jump in and as well. “I kept track until the 1000 meter mark”, Robertson said.

Recycling An Old Xmas Cracker Message!

The PCS Xmas Cracker is just 1 day away. For your browsing enjoyment we've recycled a little Xmas Cracker Carol.
(Please sing to the tune of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town")

You better swim fast,
You better streamline,
Better flip turn,
I'm telling you why,
Christmas Cracker's coming to town.

We're making up heats,
And checking them twice,
We're gonna find out,
Who's got the best times,
Christmas Cracker's coming to town.
