Camp Hill Edwardians at the National Masters 2017 - Sheffield

Dear Camp Hill Edwardians,


...  Sorry, I apologise, this is a bit later than I usually get to do a round up and ask the following questions ...  

  1. Are you competing at Sheffield 27th - 29th October and have you completed your online entry?

  2. Do you wish to be considered for any  CHESC relay events that we may enter?

  3. Which sessions are you happy to be present at to do a relay ?

  4. What strokes and distances are you prepared to swim ?


The Event Schedule and Online Entry Pack  can be accessed here:





Please be aware that if you only intend to swim relays you must still register online as a competitor by 6th October (fee is just 1.00)


I look forward to hearing from you asap. If I do not receive a reply by 1st October I will assume that  Sheffield is not on your competition calendar this year.... and if that's the case, here's to 2018 :)


Warm regards,
