Removal of Tagged Shark Detection System

June 22nd, 2017

Mul­laloo Surf Life Sav­ing Club (SLSC) will soon remove the tagged shark detec­tion buoys located in front of the Club. The buoys and pub­lic alert sys­tem pro­vided over a kilo­me­tre of tagged shark detec­tion and auto­matic alarms along the main beach.

Despite exhaus­tive attempts to engage com­mer­cial spon­sors, gov­ern­ment from both sides of pol­i­tics and local gov­ern­ment, no finan­cial sup­port has been found to main­tain or expand the trial of the cur­rent sys­tem. The new State gov­ern­ment has indi­cated that it will con­tinue to fund Surf Life Sav­ing West­ern Aus­tralia (SLSWA) to main­tain its sup­port of the cur­rent shark mit­i­ga­tion ini­ti­ates.

The asso­ci­ated mem­o­ran­dum of under­stand­ing between Mul­laloo SLSC and Curtin Uni­ver­sity (Cen­tre for Marine Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy) for research into acoustic detec­tion of tagged sharks will now focus on other oppor­tu­ni­ties to col­lab­o­rate.

Mul­laloo SLSC is obvi­ously dis­ap­pointed to have to decom­mis­sion this inno­v­a­tive appli­ca­tion of tech­nol­ogy that enhanced the aware­ness and safety of beach goers at Mul­laloo. It has been the source of some insight­ful acoustic detec­tion stud­ies con­ducted over the last few years. Mul­laloo SLSC’s research col­lab­o­ra­tion with Curtin Uni­ver­sity has been much appre­ci­ated.

The Mul­laloo SLSC would like to acknowl­edge and thank all who assisted and spon­sors that pro­vided equip­ment and asso­ci­ated ser­vices, includ­ing RPS MetO­cean Pty Ltd, Whit­fords Sea Res­cue and Thhink Wire­less Tech­nolo­gies Ltd.

There remain two Depart­ment of Fish­eries tagged shark detec­tion buoys located approx­i­mately 600 meters off the beach at Mul­laloo. Any detec­tion from these units goes directly to SLSWA twit­ter feed, based on satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tions. There will be no instant siren and red light alert at Mul­laloo SLSC attached to this sys­tem of tagged shark detec­tion.

Mul­laloo SLSC remains com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing beach goers with the high­est stan­dard of surf life sav­ing ser­vice. We rec­om­mend swim­mers and other ocean users check for shark detec­tion alerts before enter­ing the water and remain vig­i­lant when assess­ing water con­di­tions.

Any enquiries can be emailed to info@mullaloosurf.com.au or call the office on 9307 7766.

SLSWA Awards of Excellence

June 16th, 2017

Surf Life Sav­ing West­ern Aus­tralia (SLSWA) hosted a suc­cess­ful sea­son at its annual Awards of Excel­lence at Crown Perth on Sat­ur­day (10 June) night.

It was a cel­e­bra­tion of out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions and achieve­ments recog­nised at State level. Mul­laloo had 10 mem­bers across 15 Awards make final­ist as well as our Club mak­ing final­ist in Patrol Club of the Year (see list below). The diver­sity in the awards demon­strates the depth and strength the Club is gain­ing – this is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment and tes­ta­ment to the efforts of not only the final­ists but to all our mem­bers. Thank you.

The evening started with mem­ber Jeff Davidson’s induc­tion into the Sport­ing Hall of Fame with the Fre­mantle men’s beach relay team 1981–92.  The team, which over the years com­prised Aaron Brinkworth (for­mer Mul­laloo mem­ber), Adam Mills, Brian Troy, Jeff David­son, Mark Nolan, Paul Nolan, Philip Hop­kins, Richard Hick­son, Robert Pickard, Rod Pavlovich, Scott Den­non and Mark Peters, had an impres­sive record of golds at State and National level. This award marks a sec­ond induc­tion for Jeff David­son who was indi­vid­u­ally inducted into the Sport­ing Hall of Fame in 2004.

 

© Tony Bowers PhotographyAnne-Marie Wider­man­ski took home the Asses­sor of the Year Award hav­ing pre­vi­ously won the State and National award last sea­son. This state win puts Anne-Marie as a final­ist in the upcom­ing National awards later in the year. Just a few high­lights of Anne-Marie’s resume:

  • Anne-Marie is a mem­ber of the club’s Edu­ca­tion Lead­er­ship Group, with par­tic­u­lar respon­si­bil­ity for iden­ti­fy­ing and men­tor­ing new Train­ers and Asses­sors for the past three sea­sons. She has also con­ducted assess­ments exter­nal to the club, within the Perth met­ro­pol­i­tan area as well as WA coun­try clubs includ­ing Albany, Broome and Port Wal­cott.
  • Anne-Marie has facil­i­tated updat­ing workshops/programs for coun­try clubs when vis­it­ing those areas.
  • Anne-Marie is an active mem­ber of the SLSWA Mem­ber Edu­ca­tion and Train­ing Advi­sory Com­mit­tee (METAC) and has held this posi­tion for five years.
  • Anne-Marie was appointed to rep­re­sent the State on the SLSWA Com­mit­tee tasked with review­ing and updat­ing the resources for Pain Man­age­ment, ARTC and Sil­ver Medal­lion – Advanced First Aid.
  • This sea­son Anne-Marie pro­vided sup­port to the SLSNT team in set­ting up life­guard ser­vices for aquatic facil­i­ties which included train­ing new life­guards.
  • Anne-Marie is the Depart­ment of Trans­port endorsed SLSWA Recre­ational Skipper’s Ticket (RST) Asses­sor Coor­di­na­tor.

We wish Anne-Marie good luck this year at the National Surf Life Sav­ing Awards.

Thank you to all our patrolling mem­bers whom are all very deserv­ing of appre­ci­a­tion for their vol­un­tary time given. The SLSWA Awards night recog­nises mem­bers across the State for their patrolling ser­vice, in par­tic­u­lar those with 100 or more patrol hours under their belt this sea­son. We are very proud that we have four mem­bers who achieved this great mile­stone for the sea­son – Ayden Bartle, Alex Upston, Anne-Marie Wider­man­ski and Natalie God­win!

Celebrate Guy Edwards – New Life Member

June 16th, 2017

Guy EdwardsWel­come and con­grat­u­la­tions to our newest Life Mem­ber Guy Edwards.

Guy became a mem­ber of the Mul­laloo SLSC with his wife Cheryl and two sons Aaron and Brody in 1998.

Once Guy suc­cess­fully received his Bronze Medal­lion he com­menced a jour­ney that over the past 19 years has encom­passed many roles within the club from an Exec­u­tive level to patrolling the beach as a vol­un­tary life­saver – which he con­tin­ues to par­tic­i­pate.

His resume is a tes­ta­ment to his strong vol­un­teer ethic and adapt­abil­ity across all facets of the club, and this is demon­strated by the awards that have been afforded to him by his peers.

More recently Guy has been a tremen­dous ambas­sador as an IRB dri­ver and at the Aus­tralian SLS Titles which is a sub­stan­tial effort involv­ing many hours over many days. This was over and above his con­tri­bu­tions as the Sup­port Ser­vices Gen­eral Man­ager for the Club at the time.

Life Mem­ber­ship is about spe­cial or dis­tin­guished ser­vice to the Club, so if you take the time to reflect on his per­sonal con­tri­bu­tion then with­out his gen­eros­ity the Club may well be in a dif­fer­ent place.

Hollywood meets Mullaloo Awards Night 2017

June 16th, 2017

Our Hol­ly­wood meets Mul­laloo Annual Awards Din­ner was held on Sat­ur­day 6 May in our red car­peted, Hol­ly­wood themed Club Lounge. The Hol­ly­wood theme was a big suc­cess with notable celebri­ties, Audrey Hep­burn aka Coun­cil­lor Philippa Tay­lor, Darth Vader/Superman aka Pres­i­dent Stu­art Clarke and our super styled mem­bers!

We would like to recog­nise the many mem­bers that con­tributed to a suc­cess­ful evening, their out­stand­ing achieve­ments dur­ing this year and the award nom­i­nees and win­ners.

Firstly, big thanks to Paul “JP” Doo­ley for lead­ing the deliv­ery of a stel­lar Awards night. JP was ably assisted by a team of will­ing mem­bers includ­ing Penny Fort­mann, Sandy Clarke, Stu­art Clarke, Cindy de Bom­ford, Lau­rie Camp­bell, Noel Fort­mann, Kirsten Fort­mann, Sally Doo­ley, Dawn Jones, Ali Baker, Helen Grimes, Homi Dudha, Kirsten Dob­son, Gemma Nichol­son, Jeff David­son, Lyn Brosens and Julie Rap­ley – a huge THANK YOU to you all!

This year it was decided to present ser­vice awards of 20 years or more at the Club’s Annual Award events. This year we cel­e­brate sev­eral mem­bers who achieved those mile­stones and more!

Anne-Marie Wider­man­ski was recog­nised for two 20 year ser­vice awards: 20 year Assess­ing Ser­vice Award and 20 year National Patrol Ser­vice Award an achieve­ment that sees her recog­nised at Club, State and National level.

The fol­low­ing mem­bers were recog­nised for their 20 year National Patrol Ser­vice Award, yes, that is 20 years as a patrolling mem­ber:

Paul Ben­nett • Lau­rie Fos­sier-Mills • Mark Hills • Gre­gory Kelle­her • God­frey Law­son • Bar­bara Loudon • Paul Rustidge

Steve Dargie, Life Mem­ber, con­tin­ues his long com­mit­ment to life sav­ing in being awarded the 35 year National Patrol Ser­vice Award. Across the 35 years of patrol ser­vice, Steve has had a sig­nif­i­cant impact on the lives of those he has saved in the surf and on the beach. Can you imag­ine the gen­er­a­tions who would have lived a very dif­fer­ent life had Steve not been there to offer his surf life sav­ing and first aid skills?

Mark Hills wel­comed many of our Life Mem­bers to the stage – it has been some time since so many were in the same place – with a most fit­ting recog­ni­tion to new Life Mem­ber – Guy EdwardsRead more about Guy Edwards ser­vice and achieve­ments.

Perfect surf conditions for holiday coaching clinics!

April 21st, 2017

Despite it being ‘off’ sea­son, two sep­a­rate hol­i­day coach­ing clin­ics were held over the past two weeks for com­peti­tors. We were for­tu­nate as the weather was beau­ti­ful and the surf con­di­tions per­fect. Par­tic­i­pants improved their skills and had plenty of fun whilst doing so.

One clinic being a surf ski clinic over 6 days – these ses­sions were extremely well attended, run by Jaime Roberts with assis­tance from; Wes Gould, Brett Gould, Tayla Tenaglia, Bren­dan Sim­cock, Jeff Vidler, Neil Forbes, Katrina West, Gayle Gould, Jenni Orme and Mandy Lee. 

The sec­ond clinic was for our board pad­dlers tran­si­tion­ing from nip­per boards onto mals. This was run by Brett Gould with assis­tance from Ryley Gar­dener, Wes Gould, Jeff Vidler, Mandy Lee and Soraya Lee. Water safety pro­vided by Rob Bar­ton, Lilly Rosich and Darcey Brooks.

We are excited to see the devel­op­ment of these and many more of our ath­letes in the future.

Thank you to all who helped out in any way, to make these ses­sions a mas­sive suc­cess!

Surf Sports End of Season Wrap

April 3rd, 2017

The Sum­mer com­pe­ti­tion sea­son has now fin­ished and what a sea­son it has been. After hav­ing some great results at the State level, the Aus­tralian Cham­pi­onships have come to an end with the dis­ap­point­ment of water events being can­celled due to the rem­nants of Cyclone Deb­bie hit­ting the Gold Coast.

Over the last month or so, we have com­peted at the fol­low­ing State events:

  • First Aid Cham­pi­onships
  • R&R and Belt Rac­ing Cham­pi­onships
  • Cham­pion Life­saver Cham­pi­onships
  • Mas­ters Cham­pi­onships
  • Youth and Senior Cham­pi­onships

We had some fan­tas­tic results over each of our com­pe­ti­tions win­ning Medals at all events and hav­ing some very good results. We fin­ished 4th over­all from all the com­pe­ti­tions.

Indi­vid­u­ally there were some amaz­ing results but none more than Ben Jones win­ning the Open Iron­man event, a first for this Club, and Wes Ben Jones Open Iron ChampGould win­ning the Open Men’s Board and U/19 Men’s Board races, some­thing that has not been done for a very long time at this Club. It shows that we have a very good coach­ing pro­gram that is bring­ing results for this Club.

For the Aus­tralian Cham­pi­onships, we had a very small group attend­ing this year. Our com­peti­tors included, Neve MacLeod, Darcey Brooks, Cooper Schulz, Ben Jones, Harry Jones, Wes Gould, Brett Gould, Tayla Tenaglia and Josh Clarke. In the Youth Cham­pi­onships, we had some great efforts from our young com­peti­tors throw­ing every­thing they had into the tough com­pe­ti­tion. None more than Cooper Schulz who broke his wrist dur­ing the Flags com­pe­ti­tion. We wish him a speedy recov­ery and hope to see him back soon.

So, the com­pe­ti­tion does not fin­ish there, with IRB Rac­ing start­ing again in April and Pool Res­cue start­ing in May. We look for­ward to good results in these areas too.

To wrap up the cur­rent sea­son we will be hold­ing the Surf Sports and Age Group Tro­phy Pre­sen­ta­tions for Beach, Water, Surf Boat, IRB com­peti­tors and to present the Club Day age group awards. The Tro­phy pre­sen­ta­tion will be held in the Club lounge at 4.00pm on Sun­day 9th April 2017. All Youth and Senior mem­bers, part­ners and par­ents are wel­come to attend, and we will put some food and drinks on at the pre­sen­ta­tion.
