Junior Carnival #3 Wrap-Up

Firstly a huge thank you to Port Elliot SLSC who were fantastically welcoming, allowing us to join them for Training on Saturday. It was an amazing example of true Surf Life Saving Culture – All Age Group Managers and Assistants working together to create a great shared experience for all the clubs that had pre-arranged to train. What a great experience for all our nippers to work together.

All in all we had a pretty successful carnival at Port Elliot with all our Age Groups seeing some bigger surf conditions both in Training and on Carnival Day, especially our older Nippers, which they handled really well.

Thank You to all water cover and officials

A BIG THANK YOU to all our volunteer Officials and Water Cover last weekend. All your efforts are greatly appreciated.
