We are organising another Pub quiz for all the parents and friends of Viking Swimming Club, taking place on Saturday 17th May. The last Pub Quiz was a huge success, and a thoroughly enjoyable night for everyone who came on the night.
Please book the date in your Diary. Entry is €40 for a table of 4. Spot prizes/Raffle also on the night.
We will be looking for donations of spot prizes. All items gratefully accepted.
Once again, time to dust off those bun tins and baking trays!!
The Annual Viking Bake Sale takes place on Saturday 26th April, just after Junior and Senior training, at Clondalkin Leisure Centre.
Please bake up a storm, we need lots of delicious cakes and goodies to sell on the day. Donations of baked goods can be left in on the morning. Last year this was a hugely successful fundraiser for the Club, with your support we can make this happen yet again. VOLUNTEERS WELCOME TO HELP ON THE MORNING . . we plan to sell until lunchtime, or until stocks run out!!!!!
There will be no training on Good Friday, 18th April, Stewarts Leisure Centre is closed for the day.
There will be no training on Saturday 19th April for either Junior or Senior squads. All swimmers should be attending the Ian Daly Swim A Mile, taking place in the NAC at 1pm. Any swimmer who has not received a Sponsorship Card for this very worthwhile fundraiser should ask for one at training.
Once again, we are proud to be associated with the Annual Ian Daly Swim A Mile With a Smile.
Ian was a swimmer in Viking SC, until he sadly died in 2003. Every year Ian’s family run this event to raise funds for the Barrettstown Camp and St. Johns Cancer Ward in Crumlin Children’s Hospital.
Sponsorship Cards have been issued to all swimmers, if anyone did not yet receive one please ask at training and a card will be provided.
Venue National Aquatic Centre
Date Saturday 19th April
Everyone is welcome to swim, including parents. Swimmers can complete the full Mile swim, or swim in relays to complete the event.
THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our Textile Fundraiser on Saturday 29th March, we had a great response to this fundraising initiative.
We raised just over €335, which was a fantastic result for so little work and effort! Many thanks to everyone.
We are planning to run this fundraiser regularly, so please collect your unwanted clothing and save it until we announce another collection date. Alternatively, you could drop bags into the shop in Leixlip village, called “We Buy Used Clothing”. We have an account set up there, just tell them that you are leaving the items on behalf of Viking Swimming Club.
