Community meeting called to reform Guyra swimming club
Guyra Pool staff have launched a quest for a return of the pool’s polar bears.
The pool will host a meeting next Thursday (15 October) to hopefully spark the reformation of the Polar Bears Swimming Club that called Guyra Pool home.
“The club has been a strong part of Guyra Pool for many years and we have Polar Bear trophies dating back to the 1980s,” Pool Supervisor Randy Mulligan.
“However, a shortage of club volunteers meant the club became inactive last year. The Polar Bears have been an important part of our pool community and we want to see if we can get them up and running again this summer.
“The club is a terrific way for kids in our community to get fit and stay healthy.”
Mr Mulligan said some changes were being considered to encourage new committee members, including changing the number of swim training sessions from two to one nights per week to reduce the workload on volunteers.
“The pool is open for a new season and a new UV filtration system has the water cleaner than ever. We’ve got the water at a very inviting 28 degrees and we’ve implemented a comprehensive COVID plan to keep patrons safe,” he said.
“The time is right for a Polar Bears return.”
The meeting will be held at the pool from 6.30pm.
