For many Masters swimmers in Alberta the highlight of the competitive season is the Provincial Championships.
In 2015 they are being held in Grande Prairie with a tentative date of April 25 & 26.
It is a long way away and flights, according to westjet.ca will run about $400 return – plus your cab fare from the airport to your accommodation.
Renting a 56 seat bus would involve a total cost in the neighbourhood of $4,000. If we could put about 40 coaches, swimmers and their friends on the bus it would cost about $100 per person. The bus would leave some time Friday morning and then return at the end of the swim meet on the Sunday.
This would mean inviting the other local Calgary clubs to join us on the bus. It wouldn’t be a short trip, but it could be a lot of fun. And it probably brings up memories of your age group trips!
Leave your comments here on this page, or email me, for your thoughts on this. Would love to hear from swimmers on the other Calgary clubs, too.
