Looking for fresh ideas for Fundraising

If you have some great ideas for fundraising come along to the Club this Sunday 24th September at 3:15pm.  A Fundraising meeting will be held immediately after the Nippers Early Registration day and we are looking for committee members.  As the saying goes many hands make light work.  We are a volunteer organisation and rely on the success of our fundraising events.

We have some exciting developments on the horizon.  This is your Club.  It’s a family affair.  We want to have your input.

We’d love to see you there!

Nearly time for Nippers!

As the Winter sports wind up, we encourage you to consider Nippers as a wonderful Summer sport for your little ones.  It’s a whole family experience with afternoons on the beach and fun times socialising at the Club into the evening.

There are many opportunities for parents to be involved too.  Many former Nippers parents continue to patrol our beaches today!  A great way for the entire family to stay fit and healthy.

A registration day and details of membership fees will be announced very soon.

Keep your eye on our posts for more news!  We can’t wait to see you all on the beautiful beach of Semaphore!!

Building Update and Call for Storage Space!

Those members who were around the club on the weekend would have noticed the roof sheeting is now on and the roller doors installed.  We have been advised that the Rescue Ready Facility is close to complete with a hand over expected from the builder on Wednesday 6th September.  Once this has occurred the club will take delivery of an ATV and Jetski which is part of the Commonwealth Grant funding we received for the facility.

The redevelopment of the clubrooms also takes a big step forward this week with a notice being placed in Tuesday’s Advertiser seeking expressions of interest from builders interested in tendering for the $1.8m project.  Click here to view the Builders Brief.  The project is currently on budget and on time with an expected commencement in early 2018 and a completion in late September 2018.

 

Meantime the Club is looking for space to store furniture, equipment and other items from the clubrooms while the building project is undertaken (February – September).  If anyone has some commercial/industrial space available, or knows someone that has please let Mick Kenny(0498492409) or Pat Hansen (0422007413) know.

 

Grab a snag at the Doggy Day on the Green!

Come down to the Point Malcolm Reserve during the Doggy Day on the Green this Saturday afternoon and grab something to eat at the Semaphore SLSC BBQ.  Grab something to eat while checking out the event.  Lend a helping hand at the BBQ if you have some spare time.  The Club bar will be open from 1pm too!
