Swimmers Christmas Party and Awarding of the 2019 Swimmer of the Year Award.

.

Swimmers Christmas Party, 6.00 pm Saturday December 21, 2019. Venue: Upstairs at the Surf Club. 

Note: Pot luck evening meal so please remember to bring a plate and your own alcohol.

Who will be declared the 2019 Swimmer of the Year, and awarded this sought-after trophy?

.

The history behind the trophy is provided by its creator, the affable Mike Gaffney. “I created a perpetual trophy that consisted of a piece of driftwood found on Mollymook Beach. I attached a surf board fin (also found on Mollymook Beach). The wood was varnished and I arranged (with an exclusive Canberra Jeweller) for a bronze plaque with engraved words, The Octopus’s Garden Award – Mollymook Ocean ‘Swimmer of the Year’, to be attached to the side of the coveted trophy.”

Launch of the Mollymook Ocean Swimmers Book

5.00 pm Sunday December 22, 2019.   Venue: Downstairs at the Surf Club. 

Organiser for the Swimmers book launch is Mike Gaffney assisted by Bernard Jones. Planning for the book launch began a few months ago, Mike has been patiently waiting for completion and subsequent printing of the books. They have been received from the Melbourne printer and the print quality has exceeded our expectations. Its presentation is amazing! Hopefully as many swimmers as possible will be able to attend the book launch. 

Book price: $45 per book for a 200-page hard copy coffee table book.

(Not for profit, the artwork/graphic design and printing costs totalled $9,390 for the 200 books).
