On the 29th of February Semaphore SLSC will will launch a new era for our Junior program. This event will be run during the normal Nipper training session however there will be a major difference. All Nippers, Age Group Managers and Assistants will be allocated across a number (TBD) of teams which will compete against each other for the coveted….. (well it will be coveted) Brian Donnell Perpetual Trophy.

The events will be varied with Surf Life Saving events and Fun events and will include all, even our littlest, Nippers.

Teams will be named for Club Stalwarts brining together our History and our Future and if available they will be invited to be there on the day as team captains.

Presentation of the Brian Donnell Perpetual Trophy, and bragging rights until season 2020/21, will be made afterwards upstairs at the club.

So if your not involved with nippers come on down and be a part of this great event.

Mallacoota SLSC Fundraiser

This weekend Semaphore SLSC will be raising money to help Mallacoota SLSC which lost everything in the recent East Gippsland fires.  The community based volunteer run Club keeps the beaches safe during the busy summer months. All that is left now though is a smouldering mess. Mallacoota itself was devastated, losing 1 in 4 houses within the town so the effects have been widespread.

This Saturday after training the Frazer-Sikorski family will be hosting a fundraiser to help the Mallacoota SLSC purchase a new van and equipment.  There will be a soft drink/ice-cream stand, lolly bags, “guess the amount of lollies in a jar” competition and a small raffle. All funds raised will go directly to the Mallacoota SLSC to help it rebuild.

This has directly impacted Frazer-Sikorski family as Kirsty grew up in Mallacoota with her family still living there. Thankfully all of their properties survived the fires and they patiently await the roads to open so they can go back and support their community.

The Seacliff SLSC will be doing something similar on Feb 22nd as some of the members there are also from Mallacoota. Unfortunately they and their families were not so fortunate and lost everything.

Everyone has been so generous supporting fundraising efforts to date.  Kirsty, Adam, Jack, Connor, Robyn and John thank you in advance for your support.

Semaphore digs deep for Bushfire victims

Congratulations to the Members of Semaphore SLSC who raised $1900 last weekend for the CFS Foundation. The Club felt strongly about supporting Surf Lifesaving SA’s Statewide initiative, given the devastation caused by bushfires in the past few weeks. Members have certainly shown their solidarity.

The funds were raised as follows:

  • $1,012 donated by the Club, as a percentage of Friday bistro takings.
  • $248 from the Saturday juniors sausage sizzle.
  • $640 donated by members through the donation tins.

Our thoughts remain with those volunteers and their communities who will continue to recover from the fires for some time to come. Please remember to visit affected areas in the future and spend money in local businesses.
