Quandialla Swimming Club Inc members are ready to dive on into the water this weekend against visiting swimmers when the club holds its Invitational Carnival.

The club will be hosting clubs from across the region at the Quandialla Aquatic Centre with a range of events for learners/beginners and up.

Though entries for the event closed last week, there will be plenty of action in the pool to keep spectators on their toes and cheering until their voices are hoarse.

With a canteen and barbecue available on the day and the highly anticipated 25m Dash For Cash the day is expected to be a fantastic afternoon with the first event - the 10 years and under 100m Freestyle hitting the starting blocks from 2pm.

Ribbons will be awarded to first, second and third place in each event (and in each age group - 10 and under, 11 and 12 years, 13 and 14 years, 15 years and over - in all age events).

The Dash for Cash will be held in age groups with the 5 and under, 6 years, 7 years, 8 years, 9 years, 10 years, 11 years, 12 years, 13 years, 14 years and 15 years and over.

Those taking part in the Learners events are allowed to be assisted if needed.

There is a total of 65 events to take place on the day including relay events, butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and individual medley events.

The pool will be open for swimmers warm up from 1pm with the first race at 2pm.
