The full minutes of the 2014 AGM will be released in the near future but in the meantime the committee would like to thank the retiring members for their valued contributions in the past and to welcome the new members into the world of running Otters.
Thanks to those standing down; Andrew Mercer, Shelley Blackman, Karen Eden, Philippa Guironnet, Emma Laurie and Anne-Louise Hunn.
Welcome to Sarah Martin, Victoria Lucas, Lou Villiers and Rob Lucas and thanks also to Vicki Aldred, Sarah McGarvie and Liz Noller for taking on the Schools co-ordination.
We still have a number of vacant roles and other help needed so the committee would love to hear from any parent who can spare some time to get involved. It is fun, honest.
A big thank you to everyone who came along to Presentation Night and congratulations to all the Otters picking up certificates, medals or cups. Well done all!
Chalfont Otters enhanced their promotion chances on Saturday night when they defeated all comers in the latest round of the Arena League.
Whilst everyone shone on the night, special mention must go to Jamie Aldred who stepped in when a late injury scare disrupted the well laid plans and Charley Huggett who swam magnificently in her individual races and relays.
Otters are now placed 2nd in the League going into the final round where they again take on Wycombe and top of the table team Jersey Tigers for the promotion places. Final scores;

This weekend saw some of our younger Otters travel to Bracknell to compete in the 3rd County Development Meet in a bid to qualify for the 2015 County Championships.
21 Otters competed in over 80 swims, and some very credible results followed.
6 County qualifying times were achieved by Emily Sharpe (200 free and 100 IM), Zebina George (200 free), Ella Reid (200 free) and Katie Norris (100 IM and 50 back), and numerous PBs were swum throughout the day. Our young Otters also managed a tremendous haul of 30 medals:
Gold - Matthew Aldred, Ella Reid (2), Abbie Henderson (2), Katie Norris (2), Zebina George and George Mercer.
Silver - Abbie Henderson, Emily Sharpe, Zebina George, Amanda Newman (2), Jack Noller, Erin Tosh, Holly Henderson, Hugo Lane and George Mercer.
Bronze - Ella Reid, Emma Button (3), Emily Sharpe, Tabitha James, Zoe Jackson, Jack Noller (2), Holly Henderson and William Newman. Well done to all who swam!
Keep up the hard work!
