Thank you Wes Gould for giving our pre-states nippers an insight to your race preparation, ways you go about competing and racing, and for answering questions from the floor at the Nippers Players Tea.
Below is some information to assist you with the logistics for the weekend.
Friday FLAGS at SCARBOROUGH – only qualified individuals and reserves need to attend Saturday and Sunday at Trigg – beginning with March past, with Corey Bartle the proud flag bearer, grand parade and award presentations to the Junior Achievers on Saturday, followed by water and beach events depending on age group.
Sunday begins with 1km beach run for under 11 upward, and then water and beach events continue.

Jesper will be taking five tents down to the carnival on Saturday morning. He has a Ford Explorer (silver) and will be up in the car park.
Each age group needs to take a tent down as follows:
Under 11’s – take to beach arena and erect there
Under 12’s – one for male arena and one for female arena
Under 10’s – one for male arena and one for female arena
Tents can remain up, or maybe take just covers off, or dismantle tent but leave in position on Saturday night (SLSWA have organised overnight security).
Sunday – each age group to dismantle tents as follows, and take back up to car park to Jesper’s car.
Under 12’s from beach arena
Under 13’s one each from male and female arenas
Under 11’s one each from male and female arenas
Water safety roster
We require four water safety and one IRB personnel per shift.
Our shifts are:
Saturday 8.30am to 11am, under 10 female water arena

If you are able to assist, please contact your age group manager.
Tubes will be available brought down by Jesper with tents and left near water safety sign in van.
Spare yellow vests are available for competitors who did not go to qualifiers but are doing team events this weekend.
