Nippers Calendar will be issued again on the weekend.
States Day 1 – (Quals) Wrap up
Not sure it gets any better than this, with Board Rescue for U12’s & 13’s going down to Medals, our Under 12’s took out 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Congratulations to Tylor Richards & Amy Buck, Jake Andrews & Hunter Allen (absent from photo), Noah Heffernan & Luc Lindsay. Rumor is that their coach, Jacko Mahney, promised the entire U12 team a Fasta Pasta dinner (HIS TREAT) after States Day 3 (Saturday 10th) if it happened. Nice One Jacko!!
Another standout mention was our Buchannon Team of Joel Andrews & Ky Bampton (U8), Sharni Forrest & Max Jarvis (U9), and Ava Griffin & Jack Travers (U10) finishing in overall 9th place.
It was a long day for all with the last events not finishing until after 5pm. All our Nippers represented Semaphore SLSC well, and we wish them all luck with next week’s club champs and States Day 2, 3 and 4 the following week.
We must give a massive thanks to both water cover and our officials for their usual huge effort without which we could not be on the beach every week.

Post Club Championships BBQ
As usual there will be a BBQ after training/club champs this Saturday usual prices and meal deals apply. REMEMBER – CASH ONLY
I’m sure your all very sick about the banging on over Hi- Vis vests however it’s all about safety in, and around the water so there will be the standard club vests available for purchase in most sizes from now until competition starts on Day 3 of States, see Steph.
The popular new Finz vests (pink on the back, Yellow in the front) will also be available at the State Carnival in two weeks for $25)
