Clubs new equipment trailer Clubs new equipment trailer
The club has recently taken possession of a new trailer to assist in transporting swimming club equipment to the various swim meets within Victoria at which we compete.
The club would like to thank a number of sponsors who made this possible.
These include the Lions Club of Wangaratta, SignEffects, Beaurepaires and GOTAFE.
Without their support this initiative would not have been possible.
