From Singapore Masters
The Standard Chartered Masters Swimming Series will stage its first
event of the 2007 season with the Asia Pacific Masters Swimming Meet
from 9-11 Feb 2007 in Singapore. With the support of title sponsor
Standard Chartered Bank, we are looking to roll out a series of
masters swimming events to grow local and regional interest in
masters swimming.

We would like to extend an invitation for you to participate /
encourage your membership to participate and assist us in promoting
the event to anyone who may be interested in taking part in masters
swimming. We encourage adult swimmers of all ages and ability to come
take part in the spirit of fitness, fun and friendship. The event
takes place a week prior to Chinese New Year and it will give
overseas visitors a chance to come see the festivities and savour the
Chinese New Year atmosphere in Chinatown.

Your help in spreading the word about Masters Swimming and upcoming
events, to friends in Singapore and around the region would be much
appreciated. We'd like to get participants from the Asia Pacific
region to come to Singapore for the event. We've had interest from
Australia, Hong Kong and Taiwan so far and we're looking to contact
swimming enthusiasts from Japan, Korea and the region to come
participate as well. The website is the best source of information
and we will update the site periodically. Please share the website
link with anyone who may be interested.


If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us
at helpdesk at singaporemasters.org or call us at +65 6435 0930.
