Bega Business House relay wraps up

BEGA Pool’s business house relays were hailed a massive success recently. 

Twenty teams swam for the honour, but as in previous years there can only be one winner. 

The winners of the 2014 crown are the swimmers from the Southern Farm Supplies team. 

Organisers from the Bega Amateur Swimming Club said they were delighted with the community support. 

To coincide with the main event the club also hosted a number of 33 metre sprint races and novelty events. 

One of the major draw cards for visitors was the Clark/Rideaux solicitors 150 combined age challenge. 

The age of the four swimmers in the race must add up to 150 years for teams to be eligible to enter. 

Money raised on the night goes to the swimming club to help swimmers attend state and national title swimming events. 

Organisers said it was great to see the level of involvement from volunteers.

Staff from the National Australia Bank Bega were busy at work manning the barbecue, while volunteers acted as timekeepers and referees. 

The club thanked its sponsors and the community for supporting the event.
