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

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.
