ChesterfieldOn the hottest day of the year so far ... that sounds familiar ... Portland families travelled to Chesterfield to the (for once appropriately named) Summer Splash Open Meet. The flume-lined pool and giant poolside conservatory lent the venue an exotic look to complement the tropical climate for this end of 2012/2013 season competition.

The top 3 heat declared winners in each event and age group would receive medals. Anyone swimming faster than the upper cut-off time would be presented with a Speeding Certificate.

Remembering the previous year’s out-the-door queue, the red-topped officials collecting entry money just ahead convinced us that we were near the front. Realising they were just working their way down a very long line of spectators, the envisaged stampede once they opened the doors to the pool dashed our hopes of getting good seats.

Travelling to the far north of the county for the Worksop Dolphins Open Meet, aware that all six lanes of the pool could be seen from the front row seats only, we rushed to get the swimmers to the warm-up and parents to the spectator gallery.
