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.

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Awesome turn out…

We had an awe­some turn out for our sea­son wind up at Joon­dalup Indoor Beach Vol­ley­ball Cen­tre…

Our up and com­ing Under 14’s joined our cur­rent youth age groups, with around 50 young club mem­bers bat­tling it out on the sand for the hon­ours.

After five rounds it was the PINK team who went through unde­feat­ed, before all teams enjoy­ing some piz­za togeth­er.

Thanks to our injured club mem­bers Anni­ka, Lillyan and Darcey for their fan­tas­tic umpir­ing and con­trol of the games, and to all the par­ents who came along and sup­port­ed their kids.

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Ava BushbyThe Youth Achiev­er Award is a SLSWA award, giv­en to one youth mem­ber (U14 or U15) from each club in WA.

We had four nom­i­nees this year, com­ing in from var­i­ous dif­fer­ent areas of the club includ­ing surf sports, life sav­ing and gen­er­al club areas.

The award cri­te­ria include things such as:

ATTITUDE

  • Striv­ing to achieve to the best of your abil­i­ty
  • Team Spir­it and cama­raderie
  • Self-moti­va­tion
  • Respect for oth­ers
  • Being a pos­i­tive role mod­el for peers and younger mem­bers
  • Hav­ing a pos­i­tive atti­tude to club activ­i­ties

PARTICIPATION

  • Skills devel­op­ment
  • Surf life­sav­ing awards

We con­grat­u­late all of the nom­i­nees – Har­ri­et Brown, Zara Mar­tin, India-Rose Shep­pard and Ava Bush­by – and would like to announce that Ava Bush­by is the recip­i­ent of this year’s award.

Ava is a very gen­uine, well man­nered young lady. Her reli­a­bil­i­ty has seen her pro­mot­ed to Vice Cap­tain of her patrol at just 15. She par­tic­i­pat­ed in R&R (where she also men­tors younger ath­letes), March Past, Pool Res­cue and Beach events and although not as con­fi­dent in her own abil­i­ty in water events, nev­er hes­i­tates to step up and fill in or help out when need­ed, espe­cial­ly in team events. She has just com­pet­ed her IRB Crew award and imme­di­ate­ly vol­un­teered for the Abalone patrol in this capac­i­ty.

St Patrick’s Day Fun

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

The Club came alive Fri­day night to great Irish music and culi­nary delights. The fact that the Guin­ness ran out part way through the evening would be a good indi­ca­tion that a good time was being had! It was a treat to watch the Irish danc­ing per­formed by the Keady Upton School  of Irish Danc­ing who are soon to head to Glas­gow to com­pete in their World Cham­pi­onships.

Big THANKS to The Socialites group for deck­ing the club out in Irish colours; to the chefs Janine Cronk, Cindy de Bom­ford and Dawn Jones; Jack­ie Mar­tin for putting togeth­er a great col­lec­tion of music from her library and Sandy Clarke for the video reel on the screens.

The dancers were fan­tas­tic, the video reel was great and the music Jack­ie Mar­tin put togeth­er was a real treat!

Check out some of the nights’ action below:

Well done to Phil Dee for his fundrais­ing on the night, on behalf of shave for a cure, leukemia foun­da­tion — the hair be gone now!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.

Well, we hope every­one has set­tled back in to Club hap­pen­ings after a busy few weeks over the Christ­mas and New Year peri­od.

Below are a col­lec­tion of images from over the break.

Some of our mem­bers in action at the Christ­mas Eve Pad­dle — it was our biggest yet! Our Sat­ur­day morn­ing pad­dlers also had a splen­did day!

Big thanks to our vol­un­teer Christ­mas Day patrol mem­bers — the beach was busy!

We even man­aged to host an Open Water Swim event over the break on Sat­ur­day 30 Decem­ber! Thank you to all those who assist­ed with the water safe­ty – this is a huge fundrais­er for the Club. Whilst we com­plet­ed the task, we could have done with some extra sup­port from our mem­bers to pro­vide rest rota­tion and broad­er cov­er­age at the event.

Our New Year’s Eve Par­ty was also a hit, thanks to Dawn and the Socialite team along with sev­er­al mem­bers who set­up, ran and packed up for a 2 staged par­ty. First up was the kids par­ty – a great dance off and games were played, a good show of sup­port! This was fol­lowed up with our Black and White themed youth and up par­ty – they Club looked great and was a buzz of activ­i­ty!

We have already had sev­er­al car­ni­vals includ­ing the inau­gur­al Lit­tle Nip­pers Car­ni­val, hit­ting it out in the surf at Sor­ren­to – life­savers and ironmen/women a plen­ty!! Be sure to check out both Tony Bow­ers and Andrew Mayberry’s pho­tos – there is action all round!

Dis­ap­point­ing num­bers at Abalone Patrol on Jan­u­ary 13 and lucky the weath­er was so oblig­ing! Let’s hope our bronzies can step up on the next one – Sat­ur­day 3 Feb­ru­ary!

Also, we hope to hear soon from our mem­bers that attend­ed the SLSWA TOAD and Rise Up Camps!

Final­ly, we wish our Inter­state com­peti­tors Soraya Lee and Wes Gould good luck at the Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide, we hear it is a mild 40°C! Watch the action Live online!

Youth South West Camp a hit!

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

The 2017 Youth South West Camp was an excit­ing adven­ture for all. This year the camp was opened to the Under 14’s as well and so we had 44 hik­ers in total. We arrived at the Surf Club at 6am ready for the jour­ney ahead.  Once we had reached the Mar­garet Riv­er Region we set off for a short 6km walk along a spec­tac­u­lar coast­line before head­ing to camp for a deli­cious meal of Spag Bol.

Through­out the dura­tion of the camp we walked a fair chunk of the coast, even abseil­ing the Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs. Repelling down the 15 and 40 metre rock faces pushed many of us past our com­fort zones and was a great bond­ing expe­ri­ence. The views were spec­tac­u­lar and we were able to see many dol­phins and whales.

On the final day half of the group went to Giants Cave whilst the oth­er half went to Cal­gardup Cave.  An impromp­tu rave par­ty was enjoyed by all!

We were all chal­lenged phys­i­cal­ly and men­tal­ly through­out the camp and I think we can all agree that this has not only strength­ened our friend­ships but it has also cre­at­ed new ones.

I would like to give a huge thank you to the adults that came on the camp for not only putting up with us but for look­ing after us, set­ting up for us, cook­ing for us, the list goes on. We are all so grate­ful for the time you have giv­en up to take us on this adven­ture.

SW-Youth-Camp

Just a few thank yous for some behind the scenes prepa­ra­tion for the Camp: thank you Guy Edwards and Jim Bak­er for prep­ping the camp trail­er, sort­ing through the tents and repairs; thanks to our bus dri­vers Anne-Marie Wider­man­s­ki and Steve Mignon (also, thanks Steve for organ­is­ing the loan of the 4WD from Toy­ota); thanks Mark Cleary for the shop­ping, trek plans and camp sup­port; thanks also to our walk­ers and camp sup­port­ers Phil and Tracey Bartlett and Rob Amos — it was a great team effort all round.

Thank you to our camp lead­ers Taj Hawke and Lillyan Rosich for your guid­ance and assis­tance along with fel­low 2nd and 3rd year campers – with our 2017 camp group.
