The Noosa AUSSI Challengers Swim Meet is for all registered AUSSI Masters swimmers and will be held on Saturday 17th May 2008. The meet is held in a 50m outdoor heated pool in the excellent council run facility at the Aquatic Centre at Sunshine Beach. Competition includes all strokes and medley in all age groupings from 50m to 200m distance. The day ends with relays and there is always a fun event at the midday break. Prize winners are presented with awards on the day and there is always a wholesome meal provided at the end of the day and all day BBQ located on site.

As always the meet coincides with the Noosa Blue Water Swim which is an open water swim held on the Sunday of the same weekend. This gives all competitors an opportunity to swim in the two events on the same weekend. The Masters meet and the Blue Water swims are part of the Noosa Council's Aquatic month of May when several organised in and on water events including cultural and social functions occur. This gives all attendees at the two swim events an opportunity to stay over in beautiful Noosa and also to bring their families who will be well entertained by swimming as well as the other interesting activities and entertainment in town at the same time.
