Youth Survivor Wind Up

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

Our ‘tribes’ had to make up a tribe name using the 17 let­ters of MULLALOOSLSCYOUTH, then paint their flag and don their war paint ready for chal­lenges such as: “I’m Hun­gry” dis­gust­ing food chal­lenge where they were asked to eat Ana­con­das Eye­balls and oth­er fun treats; “Slip­pery when wet” fill­ing up a con­tain­er using just a spoon; “Don’t Bug Me” fish­ing bugs out of jel­ly with their feet and oth­er excit­ing stuff!

Thanks to the par­ents who helped with the burg­er prepa­ra­tion to feed our starv­ing sur­vivors. Well done to our tribes!

Shout out to Aman­da Lee for organ­is­ing our Youth Sur­vivor Wind Up!

Dave Wilson Kahuna success!

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Last year saw the sad pass­ing of a friend to all and Life Mem­ber of the Club, Dave (Wil­low) Wil­son. To hon­our Dave and to share his love of the fun and friend­ship that was the hall­mark of his expe­ri­ence of surf life sav­ing, the ‘Dave Wil­son Kahu­na’ was cre­at­ed. The event on Sat­ur­day 10 Novem­ber was the 2nd time the event was held.

The event is designed as non-com­pet­i­tive, fun and friend­ly and was again enjoyed by a large num­ber of par­tic­i­pants from the U15’s thru to mas­ters. Thank you to Dave’s wife, Yvonne, who attend­ed the event.

Shout out to every­one who assist­ed and allow for The spir­it of fun, friend­ship and par­tic­i­pa­tion to live on…”

The course!

Lancelin Club Camp Success

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

Anoth­er well attend­ed Club Camp with over 100 peo­ple on the Back Beach of Lancelin.

Many re-qualed while oth­ers cheered them on, dogs includ­ed.

Check out some of the action in our Smug­Mug image port­fo­lio HERE.

The day start­ed off a bit cool and windy but by the after­noon the sun was shin­ing and the shenani­gans began.

Big thank you to our acces­sors for the day Mark Hills, Brett Warn­er, Car­lo Ten­an­glia, Tra­cy Tenaglia, Todd Bar­tle, Alis­tair Cook and the Yanchep SLSC Asses­sors.

Brett Warn­er ran some fan­tas­tic team build­ing activ­i­ties in the after­noon, not only were they phys­i­cal­ly chal­leng­ing but also men­tal­ly. It was a great mix of young and old­er.

There was a well earned break after the team build­ing with lots of social­is­ing, relax­ing on ham­mocks and maybe a drink or two.

After din­ner at the pub, the night fin­ished off back at The Lodge with some fab­u­lous dance moves by many of our won­der­ful mums (the kids may say oth­er­wise) and a few more shenani­gans. To say we all woke up a lit­tle tired the next day… may be an under­state­ment but it was all worth while and some­thing we are all look­ing for­ward to next year.

Thanks to all that helped out over the week­end and to all our won­der­ful mem­bers that came and made the camp a suc­cess.

Melbourne Cup Luncheon Wrap

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

Frocks, fun and games galore at our first Mel­bourne Cup Lunch for a num­ber of years.

It was worth the wait!

Thanks to any­one who helped out in any way –  you know who you are! Team work pre­vailed from cater­ing, set­ting up before the event, keep­ing on top of every­thing to keep the lunch run smooth­ly, bar to pack up at the end. Any con­tri­bu­tion was great­ly appre­ci­at­ed.

The Club’s Socialites group has once again pulled togeth­er anoth­er enjoy­able event. There were 5 sweeps, a raf­fle drawn every half an hour, favourite hat and a high­ly enter­tain­ing fash­ion parade with a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from each table strut­ting their stuff across the stage – all this and still time for many of the atten­dees to pick up their kids on time on the school run (so they say)!

Check out our Mel­bourne Cup Smug­Mug image port­fo­lio to see what those of us who were there enjoyed.

Halloween wrap up!

Friday, November 2nd, 2018

What a huge suc­cess, with lots of incred­i­bly scar­i­ly dressed Nip­pers. A great opprtu­ni­ty for new mem­bers to socialise!

A MASSIVE thank you to the Nip­pers Social Group for all their amaz­ing hard work – the set up, the games and the treats were just fan­tas­tic!

Thank you to our AWESOME Youth mem­bers who made this event such bril­liant fun for all the kids – Milo Dar­cy, Pop­py Mills, Edie Bush­by, Ava Bush­by, Zara Mar­tin, Leah Mar­tin, Mol­ly Bean and Clau­dia Dineen!

Thanks Sandy Clarke for the help, advice and sup­port you gave us in the lead up to the event.

THANK YOU to all the par­ents and nip­pers who sup­port­ed the event and of course — our spon­sors of the event CC Paint­ing and ST Brick­lay­ing. We tru­ly appre­ci­ate all your sup­port!

Last­ly, thank you to every­one who con­tributed in any small way to make the Hal­loween event such a suc­cess. Feed­back was only pos­i­tive which is high praise indeed. We loved work­ing togeth­er in a team, in true Surf Club spir­it!

Oktoberfest Wrap!

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

Prost! What a night, there was Ger­man beer with all the cheers, stein glass­es, bratwurst, red cab­bage sal­ad, pota­to sal­ad and all in all a great atmos­phere!

Stu­art Clarke won best dressed “mann” just pip­ping Alex Bak­er lit­er­al­ly by a “shoe”, or may be two! Jodie Cray­den won best dressed “dame” — oh the hair! We loved the sup­port Nic de Bom­ford had – an all night pig­gy back!

A great social night at the Club doesn’t go with­out the sup­port of our vol­un­teers, so a big shout out of THANKS to:

Food prepa­ra­tion – Cindy de Bom­ford, Cal­ven, Dawn Jones
Set up – Pen­ny Fort­mann, Jack­ie Mar­tin, Tanya Hon­or, Julie Rap­ley, Har­ry Jones, Dawn Jones
On the night – Janine Cronk (with some help from grand­daugh­ter) Matil­da, Simone, Don­na
Clean up – Pen­ny, Kirsten, Kay, Stephanie, Cal­ven, Julie and Dawn

Thanks also to Ocean Reef Liquor Barons for their sup­port of the night!

Anoth­er Socialites suc­cess!

South West Youth Camp a hit!

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

What an awe­some Youth Camp we had this year – 50 youth (13–16yrs) and 9 team lead­ers!

Our campers enjoyed abseil­ing, caves, team build­ing chal­lenges, hot cooked din­ners, camp fires, friend­ships, most­ly fine weath­er and dare I say it, walk­ing sec­tions of the Cape-to-Cape!!

Thanks Mandy Lee, Julie Rap­ley and ECU stu­dents Tay­la Nash and Kate Rogers for help­ing clean up and check over all the tents pre-camp.

A big shout out to Mark Cleary and Jim Bak­er for dri­ving up on the Tues­day to set up our base and pass on some much val­ued intel on how to actu­al­ly do it for future! With over a decade of camps under their belts, it’s been an awe­some set­up each year, from cook ups to charg­ing sta­tions – the camps would not have been com­plete with­out them.

Thanks to Mandy Lee for organ­is­ing the bus­es, accom­mo­da­tion, cave book­ings and the extra tent and seat pur­chas­es.

Thanks to our new­bie team lead­ers Emma Bam­forth and Clay­ton Mil­lar — with a sim­ple “you’re OK to walk with the group” which quite lit­er­al­ly meant just that! Top effort from their encour­age­ment and com­pas­sion for some, at times quite need­ed moti­va­tion along the walks — well done! Trevor Bul­ley also a new­bie to the camp pro­vid­ed his vehi­cle for use and a you-beaut tele­scope that the campers were able to view Sat­urn and the like through! Rob Amos returned this year and towed the gear trail­er for us, his con­tri­bu­tion and humour well val­ued by the group. Our Bus dri­vers this trip were return­ing Anne-Marie Wider­man­s­ki and new to the camp Phill Dee, trans­port­ing the campers to and from the var­i­ous activ­i­ties safe­ly and effi­cient­ly. Both Phill and Trevor also man­aged a few walks in there also. I’d like to men­tion these two mem­bers who were also part of our team leader group — Jett Mitchell and Ash­lyn Bul­ley. Hav­ing attend­ed the camp in pre­vi­ous years as campers – this year going the extra step to give back as camp lead­ers ably assist­ed by fel­low youth camp vet­er­ans (ha ha, sounds kind of weird call­ing 16 year olds vets!!) Ellie Mar­low and Aaron Gigney — their youth, guid­ance and enthu­si­asm were tremen­dous­ly received and appre­ci­at­ed by all.
