Hi Folks,
We need help for 'The Vibes & Scribes' Lee Swim 2011 to be held on 30th of July. There are 300+ swimmers entered for this 2,000m swim in Cork City so its a big event & lots of help needed. We usually have parking organized near the finish line for us. We can then organise shuttles or paddle up to the start by the Mercy Hospital. There will be a numbers of Ribs or inflatable’s to supporting us. Any memebers with handheld marine VHF radios should bring them along on the day. We'll have more details for you closer to the date. Please post if you can help out.

This is a great opportunity to promote the club in our city & without our help it cannot go ahead.

Cheers,
Sean

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder that we need help for the swim as there will be 320 swimmers and a ton of spectators. It is a great outing through the centre of Cork so if your around we would appreciate the help.

Hi Folks,
Let say 14:30 at Custom House Key. That will give us time to get ready and paddle up to the start line. If you need club equipment be at the club house by 14:00. We need a good size crew for this one folks. A lot of swimmers to cover, so please try and make it.

Thanks!

Hi

Is parking available again this year at the usual spot in Port of Cork behind the Custom House?

I dont think anyone has posted to say for sure we are allowed park there.

I can answer that one, parking is good there. Just park on the north side quay towards the back. The north gate won't be open except for ambulances and fire appliances. Entrance is thru security on the south gate.

Also the start area gets congested so drop and go, so you don't get blocked in.

Hi Guys,

I will be attending the event safety brief, then Alan & I will go through our plan based on our numbers with you guys once we are in place at the start of the race @ 15:45.

We only have 14 kayakers so far this year verses the 26 Phoenix members on the water last year so anyone else who can make it please do as we want to make this as safe as possible for the 320 swimmers. This is as charity event so a good cause & great PR for the club.



cheers,
Conor.

I am just in the door, and wanted to say a quick thank you to all who turned up today. It takes awhile to collect all the money but I will pass on the total when I hear it. Great job on all the rescues and on behalf of myself, the Lee swim committee and the Lions club many thanks. I will post something more formal when I wake up. Very Happy

Also PKC got a couple of mentions at the speeches.
