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

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.

The Ace has been chased!

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

A hefty $7,500 jack­pot from our Chase the Ace raf­fle has been won by our Club mem­ber SHIV!

It was stand­ing room only last Fri­day night at the Club. With every­one set to see cards turned over for the absolute final day of the Chase, the first card turned for the night had the crowd cheer… of course as there was still a chance that they could be a win­ner. As the next card turned, the ques­tion from Chase the Ace coor­di­na­tor Car­lo Tenaglia asked … “Is it the Ace” as he showed the crowd the card Shiv picked – and so it went! Shiv was all smiles and close friends cheered!!!!

Yes, we did hear the rest of the crowd moan with a moment of defeat. But all cheered to Ace Chas­er jack­pot win­ner, Shiv, who also took home some meat for din­ner!

Thanks to all the raf­fle tick­et sell­er helpers through­out this Chase, the Club appre­ci­ates your efforts in this Fundrais­er.

The Chase the Ace will have a small break and hope­ful­ly be up and run­ning again.
