A Big THANK YOU to our Canteen Staff
The Board of Management would like to extend a well-earned Thank You to our Canteen Staff who have volunteered their time to ensure our Nippers had access to great food, snacks and beverages prior to and after training on Saturdays. There will be more than a few kids and adults that will miss their weekly pre-training Toastie or Nugget Roll and post-training Nachos, Hot Dog, or Hot Chips, I think I even saw a Chiko Roll the other day!!
Thank You Lauren, Catherine and Heather, your efforts have been very much appreciated.
Please Note that the canteen will now be closed until after the club refurbishment.

JUNIOR PARENTS – Want to get involved with your kids training?
Your kids love Nippers and we want you to get more involved in their experience. The best part is you add to your own. Surf Life Saving is a rewarding experience for everyone, not just the kids!! There are lots of different things that you can do and you don’t need to have come from a Surf Lifesaving background. We have many parents who have gone on to become Patrol members, giving them the opportunity to provide Water Cover while their children are training.
After the Christmas / New Year break we will be seeking your involvement, either at training, or becoming more involved through roles such as event officials (it’s easier than you think), or patrolling members.
Please see your Age Group Manager, Junior Convener, or Junior Surf Secretary for more information or email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Nippers returns on January 6th. Enjoy the break and see you on the beach soon!
Message from Junior Convenor Bruce Moseley:
“I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Semaphore Nippers and their parents a Merry Christmas and safe New Year, as well as send a special thank you to all the Age Managers and Assistants for their hard work in the first half of this season. We couldn’t do this without you!!”
There are a number of things to note this week:
Friday night Board Training will take place as usual. Meet on the grass at the Club at 5pm. A minimum of 4 Water Cover volunteers is required for training to go ahead.
ALL Tickets (sold or unsold) must be returned by beginning of training this week.
Celebrations will take place after training this week. As such Nippers will finish at about 2:30pm. There’ll be a visit from the man in the red suit at 4pm.
***Reminder this will be the last training for 2017.***
