Senior Carnival 2 was held at Middleton beach and was SLSSAs first attempt at a ‘mobile carnival’ with support provided by both Pt Elliott and Goolwa SLSCs.
Our crew started the journey down the coast at 6am so for all it was a very long day.
We had 13 people nominate to do events and 10 compete on the day. Conditions were very tough with competitors from all clubs facing difficulties in water events.
Thanks as always must go to our officials – Raelene Donnell, Bob Brooks and Lauren Brooks. Thanks also to Neil Bisset for storing our trailer overnight and towing it down to Middleton and to Leanne Larven and Mardi Lienert for overseeing the U15s and girls events.
Please see below for a round-up of our results and the provisional point score which saw us finish 10th for the day.

* Danny’s ski may have come in before he did but he never let go of his paddle!
**Out of all the U17 females that attempted the ski (approx 9) only one crossed the finish line so well done Bryana on having a go!
*** Nick competed in the swim team in order to fill an open male team and unfortunately hurt his back when his foot dropped in a pot hole. This then put him out for the rest of the day. The Team Manager is still feeling guilty about this!
Provisional Point Score – Middleton
With one more carnival before our States campaign begins (save the date – January 11th 2015) we really want to see as many competitors on the beach as possible so that we can not only improve our points tally but have a strong team prepared for the 3 days of State Championships.
