President’s End of Year Wrap!

Wow, half way through sum­mer life sav­ing sea­son already! Fair to say that it’s been a crack­ing start and promises to be an even big­ger fin­ish in 2018. Here’s just a few recent hap­pen­ings and excit­ing things to come…

It’s Sum­mer – really?! Ted Scott Marathon Post­poned

Win­ter returned briefly on the week­end, with one of the most intense low pres­sure sys­tems mak­ing an unsea­sonal visit to dis­rupt all man­ner of things – from Christ­mas car­ols to our Club’s Ted Scott Marathon. As always, our event man­agers and water safety coor­di­na­tors took a ‘safety first’ approach. We will have to see if the cal­en­dar allows for a ‘delayed’ Ted Scott Marathon in the early new year or we may have to wait until next sum­mer to hold this chal­leng­ing event.

Swell Café

Yes, it’s almost here!! The own­ers of the Swell Café, Olivier and Cassie, have been work­ing day and night to get it open and are very close to com­ple­tion. We are so excited about the ‘immi­nent arrival’ since the Swell Café will be our Club’s major com­mer­cial part­ner and its suc­cess will greatly enhance our suc­cess. More details about an offi­cial open­ing date and your oppor­tu­nity to cel­e­brate and sup­port the Swell Café will be released soon.

New Club Patron – Mayor Hon Albert Jacob

We are proud to con­firm that City of Joon­dalup Mayor, Hon Albert Jacob has accepted the offer to be our Club Patron. We wel­come Albert’s intent to strengthen the rela­tion­ship that exists between the City of Joon­dalup and our Club.

Cul­tural Sur­vey

The last item to be deliv­ered for Project Pre­pare is the Cul­tural Sur­vey. We had an over­whelm­ing reac­tion to the sur­vey – thank you to the 173 mem­bers who responded. The wealth of data and com­ments are now being prop­erly analysed and will be dis­cussed by the Board of Direc­tors in Jan­u­ary to form a com­mu­nique to mem­bers about the insights and a plan of action.

Fes­tive Sea­son Wishes

On behalf of the Board of Direc­tors and man­age­ment of our Club, we wish all mem­bers and their loved ones a safe and enjoy­able fes­tive sea­son. See you on the beach in the new year.

Yours in life sav­ing,
Stu­art

Merry Christmas
