Time to turn some “Bangers” at Bunnings again!

On Saturday 18th February we are again hosting the BBQ at Bunnings Woodville.  Bunnings has been very supportive of our club which has allowed us to bank more than $8,000 from our activities at the Woodville store since the start of the season.

We are seeking volunteers to do a shift of a couple of hours on the day which we will hopefully see us break $10,000.  If you can help, there is a roster on the club notice board or alternatively, please contact Pat Hansen on 0422 007 413 or phansen@adam.com.au to register your availability.

Remember, all funds received will go to upgrading our facilities which are scheduled to commence in less than 12 months.

It’s your Family Club – make it happen!

Water cover for schools required

It’s coming up to the end of the year and we have a few school patrols coming up. We’re looking for anyone who is able to head down and help out, even just for a few hours and need to know numbers as there are a significant number of kids for each school.

The club receives donations from each of the schools.  As we are heading into December, it’s a good way to catch up on your hours if you think you may be short.

At this point the dates stand as follows:

8th 9.00 – 2.30 Bethany Christian School

8th 9.30 – 2.30 Thomas More College
14th 10.30 – 2.00 Hope Christian College
15th time TBA Paralowie

Seniors Weekly Report

Senior Carnival 1 Aldinga Bay.

Senior Carnival 1 will now be held at Aldinga Bay SLSC. The carnival was to be held at Moana but due to winter storms more than 1.5 metres of sand has been eroded from the beach exposing many rocks.

Trailer loading will be after nipper training on Saturday. Please be there to load you own craft or arrange someone to load for you. The trailer will be leaving the club once loading is complete. Plan to arrive at Aldinga BEFORE 8am as it can take more than an hour to get there from the club. All beach events will be held at Seacliff on Friday 25th Nov. starting at 5.30pm. I would advise getting to Seacliff by 4.30pm.

Officials Beach Flags training.

The Officials Panel is organising an information / training session on beach flags for officials who are interested in learning more about officiating and the rules in regards to this event. This session will be held at Somerton SLSC on Thursday 8th December 2016 from 6.00pm.

If you require further information on this session you can contact Richard Crowe on 0407 021 552. If attending please email Abbey@Abbey.Lindley@surflifesaving.com.au

Board training for Female Senior Competition Group

 

female-boarder

Our Youth development officer Jennifer Hansen has organized ongoing girl’s board training sessions. The main reason for this is to encourage our young women to continue training and to facilitate the transition from juniors into seniors as competitors and active patrolling members.

Paige Purdie has put her hand up to run these sessions and has begun working on the program which will involve more team work and fun orientated sessions instead of “Full On” training.  Any girls with SRC or Bronze are encouraged to come along and join in the fun. If you already know Paige you know it will be fun!

The first session will be on Thursday the 24th November, starting 5.00pm at the club. For more details contact Paige Purdie  paigepurdie@gmail.com
