Volunteers for Stirling Open Meet 21/22 January

Dear Parents, friends and older swimmers,

As you are aware the Stirling Junior Open is coming up in two weeks time so this is an appeal for volunteers as we need your help to make this event to run smoothly. I am especially appealing for older swimmers who could take on the roles of marshalling and running. Can you please see your way to volunteer to take up a role over the weekend, even for an hour or two?

If you could volunteer could you put your name down on the list that is on the notice board at the University pool and say whether it is morning or afternoon.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me either by email ( or grab me whilst I am on poolside at the Uni on a Saturday morning or Sunday night.

Thank you in advance to everyone who is helping to make this weekend a success, we can't do this without all your help.

There are two sessions per day, morning session and afternoon session.

Roles I need volunteers for:

  • Swimming officials, timekeeper/judge
  • Selling programmes at the door
  • Helping on tombola, bottle and raffle stall
  • Trophies
  • Runners
  • People to supply drinks to officials on poolside
  • Marshalls – 2 to 3 per session

If you wish to help at the weekend and haven't put your name forward before hand, please don't hesitate to find me on the day. Offers of help are always welcome.

Jim Smith
