Norm Fyffe Appointed as Life Member
At the recent Annual General Meeting of Swimming Gold Coast a nomination was received for the induction of Norm Fyffe as life member to Swimming Gold Coast. This was accepted and at the SGC SC Winter Championships we today present a token thank you for the work and commitment to swimming that Norm has given to the region of Swimming on the Gold Coast.
Norm first started Time Keeping at Miami when his children were swimming. Over the years he gradually became qualified in all the Technical Swimming Positions.

Norms cheery demeanor was an asset to the pool deck.

‘Norm excelled as a Starter and mentored many new Officials in the art of Starting. He has been a wonderful Team Member of the group of Technical Officials on the Gold Coast.’
