Get along to our Closing Down Party Sunday 4th February.  Legendary local band Deep Throat will be entertaining us as we prepare for an exciting new refurbishment of the Club ready for the new season.

Kids’ Disco this Saturday!

Another reminder that we have a Kids’ Disco at the club this Saturday. All age groups are welcome!

We’ll be serving $5 kids’ pizza meals from 6pm, with the disco kicking off at 6.30pm.

Entry is $5 cash on the door for kids (adults are free!).

There will also be a $10 beer & pizza deal for the big kids.

Request your tunes and let us know you’re coming at the Facebook event page. Hope to see you there!

Christmas Pageant – Come and join the parade!

 

We will be entering a float at this year’s Port Adelaide Christmas Pageant which is being held on this Saturday evening November 25th in Port Adelaide.  It would be great to have as many Juniors and Seniors marching as possible.

 

We will towing one Surf Boat and will take up to ten juniors in the boat. Names will be taken on a first come first served basis but with priority placed on the younger children getting preference over the older kids.  We would love to see any SRC’s and Bronzies in uniform to assist in supervising while the floats are in motion!!!

Dress for the day is:

  • Semaphore Skull Caps for all juniors and red Semaphore Shirts for all juniors that have them
  • Patrol hats and shirts for seniors and patrolling members.
  • If you are a non patrolling parent that wants to walk with the group, please wear any Semaphore gear that you have (you could always stop by the uniform shop on Saturday morning if you don’t)
  • Optional tinsel and Christmas decorations.

Participants should be at Lipson St (between St Vincent and Russell St – I think we’ll be closer to St Vincent St) anytime after 4:00pm and before 5:30pm. The Pageant kicks off at 6pm but there are many road closures and experience says getting a park starts getting tricky after 4:30pm. Our float should be recognisable with the Surf Boat but we are in section G.

The Parade ends at Lipson St / St Vincent St intersection.

For any questions and to confirm your attendance and claim a place in a surf boat, please email Steph Breden fizzgig.pand@gmail.com or call on 0429 046 362

More information can be found on the Port Adelaide website or on the Port Adelaide Pageant Facebook event page.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Quiz night needs your donations

Saturday November Club Quiz night is fast approaching and we are seeking donations for prizes and silent auction items.

Last year’s quiz night was a great success, raising approximately $3500, and we would like to make this year’s even better. With the redevelopment coming up in 2018 the club is needing to raise funds to put towards this venture and other projects in and around the club.

If you would like to contribute in the way of prizes, vouchers, goods or services or in any other way you can think of, please contact Carmel Kenny on 0402241841 or Dot Moffatt on 0407415008 or catch up with one of us around the club.

Start organising your teams for a night of fun and mental exercise.

Meantime the slab has been poured for our new Rescue Facility. It’s anticipated the official opening will occur on the season’s first day in October. Construction completion expected in less than 10 weeks.
