Weekend training cancelled!

Posted

We have just received notice from both Stirling University and the Leisuredrome that both facilities are to remain closed over the weekend due to the continuing weather. Unfortunately, this means there will be NO TRAINING for all squads on Sunday 4th March (including Long Course Training & Junior Dolphins).  

Fingers and toes crossed the wind/snow stops and training will be back on Monday. 

Yours Snowingly, 
Lindsay Hunter.
