It was a different type of gala for PASC this weekend asthe club had the opportunity to be part of a ‘friendly’ at Glenrothes.

A varied of mix of swimmers, aged from seven to well over 14, took up the challenge and ventured south to lay down the gauntlet.

The five clubs competing were Peterhead, Cupar, Burntisland, Carnoustie and our hosts Glenrothes.

The day kicked-off at 8.30am with a coach trip from Peterhead and after a well organised fun journey the team arrived at Michael Woods Sports and Leisure Centre.

Session one featured four medley relays of various age groups followed by individual swims of fly, back and breast.

All the Blue Toon swimmers put their heart and soul into their races and all through the session PASC were on fire.

A short break before the next session saw PASC members young and not so young partake in the conga, Macarena and general hilarious and ‘individual’ dance moves around the pool.

Session two got under way with individual age grouped swims in freestyle then the same groups doing freestyle ‘kick’ relays.

A coaches relay then followed. Two teams took part in this. The A Team - Colin Reekie, Angie May, David Watt and Phil Buchan, and the B Team of Gordon Willox, Marie Cheyne, Kenny Hutchison and Jackie Reekie.

They went into full ‘bring it on’ mode and gave everyone huge entertainment.

The last race of the day was the mixed cannon relay. A team made up of two boys and two girls of each age group doing 400m free brought all the swimmers together working as a ‘force to be reckoned with’.

Glenrothes then rounded off the event by presenting all competitors and officials with a medal to commemorate the day.

Thanks were expressed to all the kids who showed great sportsmanship, the PASC supporters/fan club, volunteer timekeepers/judges, poolside coaches, ‘volunteer coach/swimmers’ and the club’s very own unofficial photographer for their support on the day.
