Bangkok Splash Meet

Dear Sailfish Parents and Swimmers, 
It has been a long time since you have heard from me. First of all I must thank you all for continued messages of love and support I have received over the last few months. Second I must offer you a huge apology! Although being back and getting into the swing of things. I have made a very large error in not sending you out this prompt information regarding the upcoming Bangkok Splash Meet…. I have discovered this evening to my horror after a few days out sick in chemotherapy la la land, that sign-ups were completely empty!! Upon investigation I have realized the email below with all info has been sitting in my Drafts, unsent! 
I can only apologize, and hope that you all have had it saved in your calendar and are still able to join us with such short notice to book. Please find details below and let me know if you have any questions. 
Many Thanks,
