WA Surf Life Savers 25 Year Club

This club came into being in 1972 with the late Bill Kid­ner being the enthu­si­as­tic cat­a­lyst behind its for­ma­tion. The inau­gur­al meet­ing took place at the North Cottes­loe Surf Life Sav­ing Club on Wednes­day 27th, 1972. It is unique to WA so far, with no oth­er club like it in Australia’s surf life­sav­ing cir­cles.

The club is open to all mem­bers that have received the SLSA 25 Year Ser­vice Award or above or have com­plet­ed at least 25 years of ser­vice with their club.

The objects of the WA Surf Life Savers 25 Year Club are:

  1. For mem­bers to par­tic­i­pate in a wider asso­ci­a­tion while still retain­ing inter­est and sup­port for their own clubs, it pro­motes the com­radery of all surf life­savers and helps to relive the great years of friend­ship and fel­low­ship with social events being offered dur­ing the year.
  2. To fos­ter good will and social activ­i­ty among present and past surf life­savers who qual­i­fy for mem­ber­ship under its con­sti­tu­tion.
  3. To always sup­port the Junior move­ment of Surf Life­sav­ing and work with Surf Life Sav­ing WA in pro­mot­ing this area of devel­op­ment.

The cost of mem­ber­ship is $10 annu­al­ly and con­tributes to the run­ning of our club.

With regards to social events the club tries to organ­ise sun­down­ers at dif­fer­ent surf clubs through­out the year as well as util­is­ing the bar­beque area at Surf Life Sav­ing WA in Bal­cat­ta. The costs to mem­bers are always kept to a min­i­mum.

In past years we have been able to have a buf­fet din­ner at the Hillarys Yacht Club. This has act­ed as the club’s end of sea­son din­ner. Mem­bers part­ners are always wel­come.

It is always a priv­i­lege and an hon­our to asso­ciate with our surf­ing mates and ladies.
