July Volunteers of the Month

Monday, August 5th, 2019

For July’s Vol­un­teer of the Month, spon­sored by ECU – School of Busi­ness & Law we recog­nise the efforts of Lau­rie de Mamiel, Enda Farn­ham and Nick Kane.

Lau­rie de Mamiel – pro­vid­ed team man­age­ment for each of the IRB car­ni­vals and also trav­elled with the team to IRB Aussies at his own cost to do the same. I know he organ­ised his work around each of these car­ni­vals to allow him to be there each time, his work was invalu­able to the team and their suc­cess.

Enda Farn­ham – is the silent man in the back­ground. He has done some amaz­ing handy­man work for the club over the recent months includ­ing putting up all the shelv­ing in the surf shop and stor­age areas and oth­er odds and ends required.

Nick Kane – has been coach­ing Ski Train­ing on a Tues­day morn­ing from 5:15am to 6:30am at Hillarys Mari­na. Nick has not missed 1 ses­sion this win­ter and is always there before the rest of us and is encour­ag­ing to all that attend. It’s dark, cold (once it was only 4 degrees) and wet, but ever-reli­able Nick is there with a pro­gram ready and at the end, all atten­dees feel as though it was all worth­while. Nick is a great Ski coach and relates real­ly well with the youth. Because of this, there is always a great turn out, usu­al­ly 8 to 10 pad­dlers. Thank you Nick.

Cancer Council Family Fundraiser

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

It was absolute­ly fab­u­lous to see the Lounge so full of hap­py peo­ple on Fri­day night for the Can­cer Coun­cil Fam­i­ly Fundrais­er. Thank you to every­one who sup­port­ed this in any way, it made my role as organ­is­er so much eas­i­er.

The room looked great thanks to the set­up gang of Jack­ie Mar­tin, Chrissie Payne, Tanya Hon­or, Janine Cronk, Simone and Sarah Truter, Pen­ny Fort­mann, Julie Rap­ley and hope­ful­ly I’ve not missed any names.

The colour scheme may have seemed an inter­est­ing choice how­ev­er, it was based on the rib­bon colours that recog­nise dif­fer­ent can­cers. Around the walls were the images of the rib­bons with the laven­der bal­loon rep­re­sent­ing all can­cers and the plum bal­loon rep­re­sent­ing the car­ers, who play a vital role in sup­port­ing any­one going through any form of can­cer treat­ment.

The kids looked great with their faces paint­ed, thanks to Zara Mar­tin, Leah Mar­tin and Ava Bush­by. Amy Hon­or and Anni­ka Ras­mussen did a great job work­ing the room with jars of lol­lies and a sloth who went to a new home with the name M and M! Great to see our youth help­ing out.

Julie Rap­ley did a good job with pro­mot­ing the ‘rolling the coins at the bot­tles’ and mak­ing it a great spec­ta­tor sport!

Thank you to the chefs and to Tanya Hon­or, Simone Truter, Cindy de Bom­ford and Jack­ie Mar­tin for man­ag­ing the Dessert Bar – those affogatos were amaz­ing and the ice cream bar a bit of a hit!

The Mar­ket­ing team of Chrissie Payne and Simone Truter did an awe­some job of get­ting local busi­ness­es to donate raf­fle prizes, mem­bers were also very gen­er­ous with their dona­tions – who­ev­er thought that raf­fles could be such fun and gen­er­ate so much enthu­si­asm for buy­ing tick­ets! The Silent Auc­tion gave a sub­stan­tial boost to the funds, so thank you to those gen­er­ous bid­ders! A list of any­one who donat­ed any­thing will be dis­played by the bar. Janine Cronk, Deb Swan, Rosanne Ryan and Sandy Clarke had a busy time sell­ing all those tick­ets.

Trevor Bul­ley did a ster­ling job at the bar ably assist­ed by a num­ber of mem­bers who jumped in to help out, Trevor did his shift as a vol­un­teer as a con­tri­bu­tion to the event.

The music from Clau­dia and Chelsea was instru­men­tal in gen­er­at­ing the pos­i­tive vibe to the room and we are look­ing for­ward to hav­ing them back to play for us again in the future.

It was about rais­ing mon­ey for the Can­cer Coun­cil, how­ev­er, the night proved to be more than that. It was a great exam­ple of how well we pull togeth­er as a Club and have a great time in the process!

I would like to acknowl­edge an extreme­ly gen­er­ous anony­mous club mem­ber who has donat­ed to this cause.

We are proud to announce, that thanks to everyone’s generosity a total of $4,130 has been raised.

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.
