Congratulations to our newly qualified SRCs and Bronzies

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

It has been weeks of chilly cold morn­ings, ener­getic sprints in the water… laugh, but per­haps the cool­ness made every­one that lit­tle bit quick­er to get through the ses­sions! Cou­pled with evening the­o­ry ses­sions where every­one was able to learn some valu­able First Aid and CPR skills. It was a great mix of par­tic­i­pants between the two cours­es — SRC with 21 can­di­dates and the Bronze with 12.

An awe­some effort by all and proud we are, of their well earned red and yel­low uni­forms!

Start­ed 12 Octo­ber!! The Jack­pot kicked off with $500!

Chase the Ace is a Club Fundrais­er. Raf­fle tick­ets are sold gen­er­al­ly from 6–7pm with the draw at 7pm. We have a dis­play case with all the cards from a deck in it. The cards are fac­ing the back of the case and the win­ner of the raf­fle each week gets to choose a card they wish to be turned to reveal the face — the win­ning card is the Ace of Spades. Below is how the Ace is chased.

Chase the Ace

  • First tick­et select­ed – turn a card
  • If Ace of Spades cho­sen – Jack­pot prize
  • If not win 20% of tak­ings on the night
  • Sec­ond tick­et select­ed wins a meat pack/prize
  • Third tick­et select­ed wins a meat pack/prize
  • $2,000 max­i­mum Jack­pot, after which it goes off


  • One for $2
  • Three for $5
  • Sev­en for $10
  • $20 cap on tick­ets sold to one per­son

Please note: All Vis­i­tors to the club must be signed in by a mem­ber.

Big Thanks for Extra Storage

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

A fan­tas­tic effort over the week­end with our mem­bers ral­ly­ing togeth­er to improve func­tion for oth­ers by sup­ply­ing their tools and knowl­edge.

The com­bined effort achieved the fol­low­ing:

  • Increase the res­cue board capa­bil­i­ty for Life Sav­ing and Youth
  • Put new cast­ers on the Nip­per racks to allow bet­ter access and wash­ing
  • Built a par­ti­tion wall near the IRB fuel area to to reduce envi­ron­ment con­t­a­m­i­na­tion. This has allowed the secured area where the motors were to have the Nip­pers equip­ment. The par­ti­tion sets an eas­i­er access to the Tents and less of a haz­ard
  • Effec­tive hang­ing of rakes, brooms and shov­els on the wall.
  • Trim­ming the club flag poles to uni­form lengths so they store more func­tion­al­ly.

Big THANKS to our mem­bers: Todd Bar­tle, Ayden Bar­tle, Darcey Brooks, Aron Cook, Josh Cook, Michelle Cook, Alis­tair Cook, Alex Upston, Rob­bie Payne, Chrissie Payne, Clay­ton Mil­lar, Julie Rap­ley, Cameron Rap­ley and Phill Dee.

Have a go day!
