(When we packed up on Sun­day we were 4 vases miss­ing and a few bal­loon weights, if these made their way home with any­one, please can they be returned to the office asap, they were bought with the inten­tion of using in the future, thank you.)

Thanks to Dawn Jones (coor­di­nat­ing the team), Penny Fort­mann (who did most of the hard work lead­ing up to the event so that the rest of us could have a great time), Karen Oliver and Jen Ducasse (invi­ta­tions and han­dling all the enquiries in the office) and Sandy Clarke (behind the scene stuff) for their efforts in the lead up to the event.

Casino Night Wrap Up!

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

From feather boa’s to fake mous­taches – what a night our Mul­laloo Gang­sters and Flap­pers had. With lots of bet­ting and danc­ing every­one sure was hav­ing a great time. The out­fits were amaz­ing, the left­over feath­ers on the floor, not so much. And as the say­ing goes many hands make light work and that cer­tainly was the case to be able to pull off this amaz­ing night of fun.

The sup­port this amaz­ing group of peo­ple (IRB Team) give to each other and every­one  is out­stand­ing. The Fan­tas­tic Food selec­tion was sup­plied and cooked by the IRB team mem­bers and their fam­i­lies. The bar was manned by the Bul­ley Fam­ily and Josh Bull, later on Rob McGre­gor stepped in so the young ones could have some fun. Phil Dee was keep­ing the build­ing safe by mak­ing sure we didn’t have any unwanted guests. Sandy Clarke for mak­ing the fly­ers and her com­mu­ni­ca­tions in pro­mot­ing the night. Carlo Tenaglia for all his help and sup­port.

2018 SLSWA Youth Achiever Award Winner

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Ava BushbyThe Youth Achiever Award is a SLSWA award, given to one youth mem­ber (U14 or U15) from each club in WA.

We had four nom­i­nees this year, com­ing in from var­i­ous dif­fer­ent areas of the club includ­ing surf sports, life sav­ing and gen­eral club areas.

The award cri­te­ria include things such as:

ATTITUDE

  • Striv­ing to achieve to the best of your abil­ity
  • Team Spirit and cama­raderie
  • Self-moti­va­tion
  • Respect for oth­ers
  • Being a pos­i­tive role model for peers and younger mem­bers
  • Hav­ing a pos­i­tive atti­tude to club activ­i­ties

PARTICIPATION

  • Skills devel­op­ment
  • Surf life­sav­ing awards
  • Com­pe­ti­tion
  • Reg­u­lar atten­dance at club activ­i­ties

We con­grat­u­late all of the nom­i­nees – Har­riet Brown, Zara Mar­tin, India-Rose Shep­pard and Ava Bushby – and would like to announce that Ava Bushby is the recip­i­ent of this year’s award.

Ava is a very gen­uine, well man­nered young lady. Her reli­a­bil­ity has seen her pro­moted to Vice Cap­tain of her patrol at just 15. She par­tic­i­pated in R&R (where she also men­tors younger ath­letes), March Past, Pool Res­cue and Beach events and although not as con­fi­dent in her own abil­ity in water events, never hes­i­tates to step up and fill in or help out when needed, espe­cially in team events. She has just com­peted her IRB Crew award and imme­di­ately vol­un­teered for the Abalone patrol in this capac­ity.

St Patrick’s Day Fun

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

The Club came alive Fri­day night to great Irish music and culi­nary delights. The fact that the Guin­ness ran out part way through the evening would be a good indi­ca­tion that a good time was being had! It was a treat to watch the Irish danc­ing per­formed by the Keady Upton School  of Irish Danc­ing who are soon to head to Glas­gow to com­pete in their World Cham­pi­onships.

Big THANKS to The Socialites group for deck­ing the club out in Irish colours; to the chefs Janine Cronk, Cindy de Bom­ford and Dawn Jones; Jackie Mar­tin for putting together a great col­lec­tion of music from her library and Sandy Clarke for the video reel on the screens.

The dancers were fan­tas­tic, the video reel was great and the music Jackie Mar­tin put together was a real treat!

Check out some of the nights’ action below:

Well done to Phil Dee for his fundrais­ing on the night, on behalf of shave for a cure, leukemia foun­da­tion – the hair be gone now!

 

Festive season wrap!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.

Well, we hope every­one has set­tled back in to Club hap­pen­ings after a busy few weeks over the Christ­mas and New Year period.

Below are a col­lec­tion of images from over the break.

Some of our mem­bers in action at the Christ­mas Eve Pad­dle – it was our biggest yet! Our Sat­ur­day morn­ing pad­dlers also had a splen­did day!

Big thanks to our vol­un­teer Christ­mas Day patrol mem­bers – the beach was busy!

We even man­aged to host an Open Water Swim event over the break on Sat­ur­day 30 Decem­ber! Thank you to all those who assisted with the water safety – this is a huge fundraiser for the Club. Whilst we com­pleted the task, we could have done with some extra sup­port from our mem­bers to provide rest rota­tion and broader cov­er­age at the event.

Our New Year’s Eve Party was also a hit, thanks to Dawn and the Socialite team along with sev­eral mem­bers who setup, ran and packed up for a 2 staged party. First up was the kids party – a great dance off and games were played, a good show of sup­port! This was fol­lowed up with our Black and White themed youth and up party – they Club looked great and was a buzz of activ­ity!

We have already had sev­eral car­ni­vals includ­ing the inau­gu­ral Lit­tle Nip­pers Car­ni­val, hit­ting it out in the surf at Sor­rento – life­savers and ironmen/women a plenty!! Be sure to check out both Tony Bow­ers and Andrew Mayberry’s pho­tos – there is action all round!

Dis­ap­point­ing num­bers at Abalone Patrol on Jan­u­ary 13 and lucky the weather was so oblig­ing! Let’s hope our bronzies can step up on the next one – Sat­ur­day 3 Feb­ru­ary!

Also, we hope to hear soon from our mem­bers that attended the SLSWA TOAD and Rise Up Camps!

Finally, we wish our Inter­state com­peti­tors Soraya Lee and Wes Gould good luck at the Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide, we hear it is a mild 40°C! Watch the action Live online!

Youth South West Camp a hit!

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

The 2017 Youth South West Camp was an excit­ing adven­ture for all. This year the camp was opened to the Under 14’s as well and so we had 44 hik­ers in total. We arrived at the Surf Club at 6am ready for the jour­ney ahead.  Once we had reached the Mar­garet River Region we set off for a short 6km walk along a spec­tac­u­lar coast­line before head­ing to camp for a deli­cious meal of Spag Bol.

Through­out the dura­tion of the camp we walked a fair chunk of the coast, even abseil­ing the Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs. Repelling down the 15 and 40 metre rock faces pushed many of us past our com­fort zones and was a great bond­ing expe­ri­ence. The views were spec­tac­u­lar and we were able to see many dol­phins and whales.

On the final day half of the group went to Giants Cave whilst the other half went to Cal­gardup Cave.  An impromptu rave party was enjoyed by all!

We were all chal­lenged phys­i­cally and men­tally through­out the camp and I think we can all agree that this has not only strength­ened our friend­ships but it has also cre­ated new ones.

I would like to give a huge thank you to the adults that came on the camp for not only putting up with us but for look­ing after us, set­ting up for us, cook­ing for us, the list goes on. We are all so grate­ful for the time you have given up to take us on this adven­ture.

– Taj Hawke 

SW-Youth-Camp

Just a few thank yous for some behind the sce­nes prepa­ra­tion for the Camp: thank you Guy Edwards and Jim Baker for prep­ping the camp trailer, sort­ing through the tents and repairs; thanks to our bus dri­vers Anne-Marie Wider­man­ski and Steve Mignon (also, thanks Steve for organ­is­ing the loan of the 4WD from Toy­ota); thanks Mark Cleary for the shop­ping, trek plans and camp sup­port; thanks also to our walk­ers and camp sup­port­ers Phil and Tracey Bartlett and Rob Amos – it was a great team effort all round.

Thank you to our camp lead­ers Taj Hawke and Lillyan Rosich for your guid­ance and assis­tance along with fel­low 2nd and 3rd year campers – with our 2017 camp group.
