Last Friday Night saw the first Wine Appreciation Night held at the Club, a large turn out of members and non-members got to sample the excellent wine and gain some expert guidance from local wine maker Paul.

Big thanks to Amadio Wines for supporting the event and we look forward to the opportunity to sample more of their wines through other events and over the bar.

Thank You to Andrew Spencer for organising the event and Me for the Cheese Platters.

Westpac 1 visits Semaphore

Westpac one dropped in to Semaphore SLSC on Saturday, giving patrolling members and the public a chance to take a closer look at our rescue operations.

Club Member James Brogden was on hand to share his knowledge. A true success story of a young Club member following his dreams, James recalled how as a 13 year old he’d decided he wanted to be a part of helicopter rescue operations. He worked towards that for 7 years, determined to make his childhood aspirations a reality. Now he is living the dream! What an inspiration for the young members of our Club!

It was certainly a family affair too. Several members and their families getting a chance to share in the experience.

Thanks James and Westpac 1 members for allowing us such a close up experience.

Junior Report 3rd April

This Junior Report includes

  • Junior States Wrap-up
  • Nippers Break Up / Presentation Day

Junior States Wrap-Up

All in all Semaphore Nippers had a pretty successful Junior States Championships. We congratulate all our competitors and their families.

Forgive me as I realised that we failed to explain all the levels of competition in Surf Life Saving earlier in the season. As you know there are both individual and team events within each age group however there is also a competition at club level.

Every Individual and Team that finishes in the top six of every event are assigned points. These points are collected at a club level and define the Club Pennant winner for the season.

This year Semaphore SLSC finished 5th in the club competition. Official results are shown below.

In addition here is a full listing of the results of all Jnr Champ events for your review.

States Photos

On presentation day we will have a full photo presentation during lunch and the trophy Presentations that will continue in to the afternoon. Below is a very small sample of the photos taken over the two days.
