It's getting close now, and we are all very excited.
Everyone coming on parade day will need to bring their own white shoes. They can not have other colours on them, as we want all attention on our fantastic dance moves that we have been practising. This applies to both our marchers, and our supporters.
Anyone not wearing swimwear, will need to wear a lifesaving uniform. First option is to wear your own, second option is to borrow one from a friend, and finally we will have a few spare the supply. If you have your own pair of red shorts (not necessarily lifesaver pants) they will be good enough.
And of course bring your red Rival swimwear and your lifesaving cap.
Also bring as little else as possible. Aim for only bringing the top and pants you'll take off. We have a stash of ponchos in case they are needed, but hopefully the weather gods are looking kindly on us. Your gear will go into a van at the rehearsal in the afternoon, and you won't see it again until after the parade. There will be food and drink for sale in Hyde Park, and we will have water available on the truck.
It's all getting close now!
Gary and the committee.
