Juniors Weekly Report – a final word from our hard working Convenor

Thanks to

Hi Everyone,

 

Congratulations on finishing equal third with Brighton at State Titles for the Juniors and well done to everyone who was part of our junior program this season. A full copy of the results are available via this link: http://www.surflifesavingsa.com.au/results/

 

 

Well, what a State Titles it was!  The weekend would have not been possible without the countless hours of work from our volunteers including the working party on the beach, volunteers on the food stall and BBQ, Water Cover on the beach, officials, parents and kids. To all our age group leaders and assistants thank you for a great season.

 

Leading in to the weekend a number of our members had taken time off work to make this possible.  Special thanks to Lorren Atwell and everyone who worked on the BBQ and food stall, Dave McGrath “Doggsy” and Jay Atwell for organising the container and generator.

 

Steve Sims and the entire working party who worked all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Without the work they did the carnival would not have happened. Carnival officials made comment that when the carnival is at Semaphore they know that the working party deliver every time without fail. So thank you again.

 

Thank you to Symons and Clark and Kerry Logistics, Neil Bisset and Metricon for their supply of the portable toilets and attire for the working party.  Thank you Semaphore Bakehouse for the pies, pasties, sausage rolls and donuts. Thank you to the Purdie family.

 

It has been an exciting and at times challenging season and now it comes to an end. I would like to thank and congratulate our 164 participants across all age groups this season.

 

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Doggsy and Leanne for co-ordinating our Saturday water cover and all the water cover personnel who gave up their time to take care of us in the water.

 

We also need to thank our Media personnel, Steph, & Claire and the people behind the scene Kate & Rhys for sending out our weekly newsletter.  I would also like to thank our uniform shop team headed up by Mardi Lienert each weekend.

 

We also need to thank Lorren Atwell and her canteen helpers each weekend – Wendy, Catherine & Heather for co-ordinating the canteen being open at the start and end of training and all the parents who assisted in the canteen.  Thank you to Sean Kenny for setting up the beach and our senior members who have come out to lend a hand this year with the juniors, including Paige, Luke, Jack, Zac, Myia, Cooper, Josh, Bianca, Zoe, Lindsay, Sam and Sean McKenzie –  thank you.

 

I would also like to thank our Friday night board training water cover  Andrew, Craig , Craig, Kate, Brenton, Megan, Tracey Michelle, Michelle, Owen, Mick and Paul and if I missed anyone thank you.

 

Thanks to Ian Biggs and Brad Tunbridge for taking care of our pool swimming on a Wednesday night.  To my assistant Bruce Moseley thank you for your support throughout the year.

 

On behalf of all age groups we would like to thank Kerry Schulz not only for ordering our uniforms, but ensuring all competitors from all age groups have been entered in the competition entry system so they could participate in the recent state titles. Also thank you to Raelene Donnell for co-ordinating our correct quota of officials at each carnival, organising R&R teams that performed so well, along with the coaches, Freaky, Tony and Celeste and special mention to Gus Wickman who coached Will and Willis but sadly passed away last month- your efforts are greatly appreciated. Brooke and Kelly Jones for coaching our March Past Teams throughout the season thank you and well done.

On a personal note I would like to thank my family for their support over the last three seasons whilst I have been junior convenor and without their understanding this would not be possible.

 

Congratulations and well done to everyone!

 

Pat

 

Still time to lend a hand and lighten the load of the dedicated volunteer crew

Thank you to all the selfless volunteers that have helped in the food tent/bbq/kitchen over the last 2 days at the Junior State Titles. Your contribution has been amazing. Thank you especially to those who don’t even have children competing this weekend but have donated their time, understanding that it is an all in Club event.

We have one day to go and if you have time free please pop up and grab some tongs or help serve.  Perhaps you have time in between your child’s events.  Every little bit helps and it will give those who are spending hours covering shifts an opportunity to have a break.

Let’s make this the best States and finish off with a bang! We will be in the tents from 5:30am Sunday morning.

Last chance to grab a snack at the Club Canteen!

This Saturday will be your last chance to grab a bite to eat from the Club Canteen.

Open before and after junior training with the usual suspects on the menu: Chips, Wedges and Nachos.
