Board Training

No Board Training this Friday 23rd February, 2018



Surf Life Saving SA has notified us of the requirements for Hi-vis Vests for both Qualifying and State Carnivals. Competitors may wear either Pink or Yellow (or the new combination Yellow Front, Pink Back version). However, the Hi-Vis Vest irrespective of colour cannot be faded, and that a competitor with a faded Hi-Vis will not be allowed to compete.

Hi Vis Vests will be available for purchase first thing Saturday morning. Please find Steph Breden. OR from the Finz merchandise Tent but I have no info of their opening time (traditionally 9am).


State Qualifying Carnival – 24th Feb – Grange SLSC

Program (please note that as always, this is subject to weather/beach conditions so competitors should be prepared for any change of event order that may be necessary due to a number of factors)

Event Schedule:


The 1 km Team Run, Buchannon, Brace Relay and Board Rescue will be competed down to Medals. That means that the Heats, Semi-finals and Finals will be run for the appropriate Age Groups on this day, with medals presented at the State Championship Carnival 2 weeks later.

Please Note that events start at 8am, there will be no RnR or March Past Events, so we are requesting all competitors to be on the beach at 7:30am.  Grange is notoriously bad for parking. I have received no further information regarding any arrangements for parking so please allow plenty of time to park and get on the beach.


Club Championships – 3rd March


Seniors Start at 9am         –      Juniors start at 10am


Come down and see our Seniors in action, then muster at the usual place at 9:45am
