 Dr Neil Wilson - Lifetime Member

The late Dr Neil Wilson - Life Member  

"It is with very great sadness that I am passing on the news that  Dr Neil Wilson passed away on Tuesday 18th August 2015.  Neil was Carolyn Macdonald's father, and one of the founder members of our Club, and a Life Member.  It is doubly sad that Neil has passed away so soon after his great friend Mike Firmin. 

Neil dedicated a huge part of his life to Rushmoor, to synchronised swimming in general and to the synchro career of his daughter, Carolyn.  He was Chairman of our Club, and in later years a constant guiding influence as a Life Member.  Neil was a physicist specialising in engineering and metallurgy, and he worked with Mike Firmin in research at Farnborough airport.  At Mike's recent funeral we heard stories of Neil and Mike spending quite a lot of time at work discussing the scientific aerodynamics involved in synchronized swimming, which was probably typical of both of them!

Dr Wilson was a man of great morals and integrity, and a complete gentleman at all times. 

So our Club loses another of its great characters, but we are left with Neil's abiding memory, legacy and guiding influence which we must now take forward to fuel a new generation of swimmers and parents at Rushmoor. 

Neil's funeral was held on Monday 7th September 2015."

Bristol Central Synchro Club hosted the first Synchro Beacon Games at Soundwell Pool, Bristol on Saturday 11th July 2015.

This was a regional figures competition open to those on the Regional Beacon Programmes (Leeds, Reading, Rugby & Rushmoor), England development, and all other ASA registered swimmers who fall within the 9-12 and 13-15 age category and who hold skill level 2 or above.

Medals were awarded to the top three swimmers in each age group from the Regional Beacon squads and to the top three swimmers in the open figures comp.  A trophy was also awarded to the overall winning Regional Beacon squad.  All 4 Beacon squads and England development squad performed a short display of the England "Peter Pan" routine at the end of the competition.

The competition will showcase talent from those on the ASA Beacon Programme – a talent development pathway created to help young athletes reach their full potential.
The ASA’s Beacon Programmes are in place to support the regional swim21 networks of clubs and each programme provides regular access for a regionally selected group of swimmers to long course training, sports science support services and educational programmes as an enhancement to their club programmes.
