QBN Brisbane Northside Masters May–June News 2019

Brisbane Northside extends our sincere thanks to the organisers, officials, and home clubs who’ve facilitated all recent masters swim meets and games. These include the Great Barrier Reef Masters Games in Cairns, the State Titles in Brisbane and Yeronga Yabbies Meet, to name just a few over the past couple of months.

It’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to attend events both near and far, enjoy a bit of friendly competition and catch up with friends old and new.

We’d like to invite all Masters Swimmers to our upcoming QBN Meet which will be held at the Fortitude Valley Pool on Saturday 24th August.

More detailed information will be available in the coming weeks.
