2018 SLSWA Youth Achiever Award Winner

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
  • Com­pe­ti­tion
  • Reg­u­lar atten­dance at club activ­i­ties

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!

 

Festive season wrap!

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!

New Shirt – Long Sleeve ver­sion

What a fan­tas­tic evening we all had on Fri­day 3 Novem­ber! Cindy de Bom­ford and Penny Fort­mann have been work­ing hard in the Mul­laloo Surf Shop, cul­mi­nat­ing in a fash­ion show which ended with a big reveal of the NEW CLUB SHIRT!

There is room on the back and right chest to per­son­alise them – you’ll see the Age Group Man­agers soon with their ones on soon! Be sure to check them out, the shirt is sched­uled to be used for the next 3 sea­sons, so you will get great value and there is noth­ing more sup­port­ing and pride giv­ing than to all be seen in the New Club shirt!

Thanks to all our fash­ion mod­els who looked awe­some on the night – noth­ing like a cat­walk to bring out the hid­den tal­ent of some of our strut­ting Zoolan­der mem­bers!

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.

– Taj Hawke 

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.

Hollywood meets Mullaloo Awards Night 2017

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Our Hol­ly­wood meets Mul­laloo Annual Awards Din­ner was held on Sat­ur­day 6 May in our red car­peted, Hol­ly­wood themed Club Lounge. The Hol­ly­wood theme was a big suc­cess with notable celebri­ties, Audrey Hep­burn aka Coun­cil­lor Philippa Tay­lor, Darth Vader/Superman aka Pres­i­dent Stu­art Clarke and our super styled mem­bers!

We would like to recog­nise the many mem­bers that con­tributed to a suc­cess­ful evening, their out­stand­ing achieve­ments dur­ing this year and the award nom­i­nees and win­ners.

Firstly, big thanks to Paul “JP” Doo­ley for lead­ing the deliv­ery of a stel­lar Awards night. JP was ably assisted by a team of will­ing mem­bers includ­ing Penny Fort­mann, Sandy Clarke, Stu­art Clarke, Cindy de Bom­ford, Lau­rie Camp­bell, Noel Fort­mann, Kirsten Fort­mann, Sally Doo­ley, Dawn Jones, Ali Baker, Helen Grimes, Homi Dudha, Kirsten Dob­son, Gemma Nichol­son, Jeff David­son, Lyn Brosens and Julie Rap­ley – a huge THANK YOU to you all!

This year it was decided to present ser­vice awards of 20 years or more at the Club’s Annual Award events. This year we cel­e­brate sev­eral mem­bers who achieved those mile­stones and more!

Anne-Marie Wider­man­ski was recog­nised for two 20 year ser­vice awards: 20 year Assess­ing Ser­vice Award and 20 year National Patrol Ser­vice Award an achieve­ment that sees her recog­nised at Club, State and National level.

The fol­low­ing mem­bers were recog­nised for their 20 year National Patrol Ser­vice Award, yes, that is 20 years as a patrolling mem­ber:

Paul Ben­nett • Lau­rie Fos­sier-Mills • Mark Hills • Gre­gory Kelle­her • God­frey Law­son • Bar­bara Loudon • Paul Rustidge

Steve Dargie, Life Mem­ber, con­tin­ues his long com­mit­ment to life sav­ing in being awarded the 35 year National Patrol Ser­vice Award. Across the 35 years of patrol ser­vice, Steve has had a sig­nif­i­cant impact on the lives of those he has saved in the surf and on the beach. Can you imag­ine the gen­er­a­tions who would have lived a very dif­fer­ent life had Steve not been there to offer his surf life sav­ing and first aid skills?

Mark Hills wel­comed many of our Life Mem­bers to the stage – it has been some time since so many were in the same place – with a most fit­ting recog­ni­tion to new Life Mem­ber – Guy EdwardsRead more about Guy Edwards ser­vice and achieve­ments.
