To participate you must contact Sean McKenzie on 0428 953 000.

SURF Ed Requirement – CPR Training

As part of the Surf Ed for U13’s this year it is a requirement for RnR States and State Champ Competitors to have attained a SLSSA CPR Certificate. This Training will be available on 2nd December 2018 at the Club. Please Email Steph at juniorsec@semaphoreslsc.com.au to confirm your attendance. Please let me know if there is no possibility of being able to attend this scheduled training.

**Note** If you have attained an SRC Certificate this training is not required. 

Ist Junior Carnival – Glenelg

The first Junior Carnival is on Sunday 18th November at Glenelg.  Next week your Age Group Managers will be requesting nominations for this Carnival.  It is important that you consider your response as this year SLSSA will not allow late entries. Only the nominated juniors entered into the Event System will be allowed to compete. Conversely if you nominate and don’t show you may adversely effect a team event.  The events scheduled for this Carnival are shown below.

** Update** It may be likely that there will be no RnR competition at this carnival and That MachPast will be moved to the end of the Day.  It has been identified that the ability for competitors and there supporting parents to be on thebeach at the required times are a potential issue.  There will be allot of space dedicated in normal parking areas to storage for the international teams visiting for The World Surf Life Saving Championships scheduled for the same week. http://www.lifesaving2018.com



Reminder – Semaphore Juniors Facebook Group

Semaphore SLSC Juniors now have their own Facebook group. This is a closed Facebook group meant for Parents of Semaphore Surf Life Saving Club Nippers and we will be posting all Junior Training and Carnival information via this group throughout the season. Use the link below to request access.


Please note that you will be asked 2 questions which will allow us to ensure that members of the Group are restricted to Parents/Guardians. This is to ensure the privacy of our Nippers should we post photos etc.  Only those confirmed as members from the questions will be granted access.

Surf Club Bistro Recommencing Meals – Friday 19th October


We are pleased to advise that the kitchen will be up and running again from Friday 19th October for dinner, with our dedicated kitchen staff returning after a long break whilst our renovations have been undertaken.

Demand will be high for the first night so we will be limiting the number of diners to 100. Bookings will therefore be essential so you don’t miss out.

Please call the club on 8449 8088 to register your booking.

From thereafter meals will be served every Thursday and Friday from 6pm.

We hope to see you all very soon.

Social and Fund Raising Committee

Social and Fundraising Committee

It’s been a while since the club had a social and fundraising committee but we would like to start this important group up again.

If you have any ideas for social events and/or fundraising – or would just like to be involved we would welcome you joining this new group.

We will not be asking for too much of your time with the first priority to plan a calendar of events and activities for members and supporters (young and old).

An informal meeting will be held upstairs at the club on Sunday 21st October at 3pm for those that are interested in joining in.

For further information please give Pat Hansen a call on 0422 007 413 or email at phansen@adam.com.au.

30th Anniversary at Point Malcolm Reserve

30th Anniversary at Point Malcolm Reserve

On Sunday the 7th of October, Semaphore SLSC celebrated 30 years based at our current location at Point Malcolm Reserve.   On what was a magnificent Sunday afternoon weather-wise, a massive gathering of current & past members celebrated what has been a marvellous history at the site.  Given the recent Club re-development those in attendance also could see the exciting future ahead of us.


Many thanks to those who assisted in the planning and preparation for the event, as well as those who helped on the day, whether it be serving behind the bar, collecting glasses, serving food or cleaning up at the end of the evening.  We are truly blessed to have such committed and giving members.

Private Function at Club – 13th October

Wedding at the Club this Saturday 13th October

In what is the first large scale external Function at the Club since our re-development, this Saturday we are hosting a Beach Wedding for approx. 125 guests.  Please be advised that the upstairs area of the Club will be closed to all to enable the set-up for the Function.  We will have a Temporary Bar & BBQ downstairs following Nippers Training for all to enjoy.

Club Swimwear and Shirts

Club Swimwear

Following on from last week’s article, please be reminded that we are looking to close orders on the new Club Swimwear next week.  Given that we have elected to ‘Pay As You Order’ to keep the cost as low as possible, it is important that we place our bulk order as soon as possible given that there is a 4-6 week delivery timeframe.  These items are unbelievable value & can only be priced as such through the generous sponsorship of BluBuilt Constructions and our ordering process.


FINZ have provided sample sizes this week, but they are for this week only as they need to be returned after Saturday. Please don’t hesitate, there is no time to waste!!


The Uniform Shop will be open on Saturday from 12pm or alternatively for Senior competitors, orders can be placed via Sean McKenzie.  We are expecting that sample sizes will be available for inspection on Saturday.
