Bronte Barratt Shield
This event is to honour Bronte Barratt OAM, and her contribution to swimming, our local community and the Samford Stingrays Swim Club.
The Shield is now in it's second year, after our highly successful first carnival saw 270 swimmers at the Samford Pool. The Shield is designed to be a friendly team competition between local Second and Third Division Clubs within Brisbane; with an emphasis on fun and good sportsmanship!
