Boston Amateur Swimming Club is on the look-out for sponsors for the November 2017 Open Meet. Can you help?
For the last 10 years we have held the event at the Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham in view of the excellent transport links and spectator facilities. The event is being held over two days – Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November 2017 – and we are now looking for sponsorship for a number of elements for this event.
At an Open Meet, swimmers compete in a variety of strokes and distances with the aim of achieving Personal Best times which they can use to enter future competitions. The last three Open Meets we have held have been full, with more than 300 swimmers from 16 Clubs from around Lincolnshire and beyond swimming in 30 events, ages of competitors start from nine years. The November meet is already full, with entries closing in record time.
Boston Amateur Swimming Club is conscious that swimming should be for everyone regardless of age, ability or financial circumstances and we make every effort to keep our fees at a realistic level in spite of increasing running costs each year.
We are looking for sponsorship of each of the 30 events as we had at the previous open meet, which will be named after the sponsoring company, organisation or individual. The cost of this would be £75 per event or £140 for two events. The pool hire, cost of trophies plus hire of electronic timing are some of the event’s largest biggest expenditure.
We are also grateful for the time and support given by our team of volunteers, officials and helpers who give their time for free. Your support with this event would be much appreciated. Please don’t hesitate to contact the Club via the website, speaking directly to Sheli Scott (Open Meet Secretary), Michele Ingamells (Fundraising Secretary), Pete Hockerston (Chairman) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Many thanks in advance.
