Lifesaving World Champs update

Friday, November 30th, 2018

They said Glenelg would be a mill pond!!

Check out some of the action in our Smug­Mug Pho­to Port­fo­lio HERE!

With the first few days of the Ocean com­pe­ti­tion sus­pend­ed due to some 80–90km winds and hor­ren­dous “surf” it was not the most invit­ing con­di­tions.

The weath­er cleared and a chop­py surf — likened to our after­noon Mul­laloo south west ocean set the stage for the Surf Boat com­pe­ti­tion.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our Bub­ble Wrap — Mas­ters 200 male surf boat crew -com­ing home as World Bronze Medal­lists.
Steve Part — sweep, Stu­art Clarke, Mar­tin Fisk, Tim Buy­tels, Edgar Coel­lo. It cer­tain­ly was a tough 3 races to get there!!

Our Neptune’s Daugh­ters u19 girls (Sophie Hum­mer­ston, Anna Greg­son, Elise Dag­nia, Ciera Mad­den, Stu­art Clarke — sweep) with 3 tough races end­ed with a 9th over­all! Awe­some effort!

Mar­lins, our mas­ters 180 female just missed out on a medal com­ing in 4th in their final (Sandy Clarke, Rachel Kre­mer, Rachel Greene, Tama­ra Yujnovich, Stu­art Clarke — sweep). Great team effort and sup­port!

Huge THANK YOU to Mar­tin Fisk and Jesse McMa­hon who drove the surf boat to and from Ade­laide — in record time too!! Thanks Jesse for your assis­tance on the beach in shift­ing boats and great team­work between the 3 teams in sup­port­ing each oth­er over the few days of com­pe­ti­tion!

We wish Joshua Clarke good luck in his rac­ing over the next few days as the Cham­pi­onships con­tin­ues.

Senior Carnival Round 1 Wrap

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018
The first round of the 2018/19 Sun­Smart Senior Car­ni­vals was held this Sun­day at Leighton Beach and had a great turn out.

The weath­er didn’t quite live up to expec­ta­tions with the wind pick­ing up as the morn­ing pro­gressed mak­ing it chal­leng­ing for those com­ing back to shore on craft, but com­peti­tors bat­tled through it.

Ath­letes got to try out SLSWA’s new car­ni­val man­age­ment sys­tem and although there were a few teething prob­lems with some of the wrist bands, it worked well, with live results being post­ed on the Team App.

The beach came to a stop at 11am as we remem­bered the fall­en sol­diers on the cen­te­nary of the Armistice. It was heart warm­ing to see young and old come togeth­er to pay their respects, the Boat­ies pay­ing trib­ute in a rais­ing of oars.

Mul­laloo put up an impres­sive fight but unfor­tu­nate­ly Trigg dom­i­nat­ed tak­ing out the over­all win.

It was great to see so many of our ath­letes rep­re­sent­ing their club and bat­tle through the heats and finals of their events.

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.

A spe­cial shout out goes to Danielle Hon­or who amaz­ing­ly com­pet­ed in all 4 events!!– 4K Beach Run, 2K Ocean swim, 6K Ski & 3K board race.  Danielle had been des­per­ate for a pair of Nike Train­ers and asked her par­ents if she could get a pair in return for tak­ing part in all 4 events. They agreed think­ing that she wouldn’t make the 3rd event but Danielle proved them wrong ?

The pow­er of a pair of Nikes just goes to show that our kids can do any­thing if they put their minds to it.

We were all so impressed and in awe of your incred­i­ble effort.  Con­grat­u­la­tions Danielle.

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!

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!

Short Board State Champs Wrap

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

Awe­some effort from our four com­peti­tors at last week­ends Short Board State Champs at Secret Har­bour. Mul­laloo came 4th over­all out of the 10 com­pet­ing Clubs.

Small­er surf than they would have liked, but was enough to build a com­pe­ti­tion around. Whilst much of the hard work had to be done in the white wash, it was fan­tas­tic results from our ath­letes.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Neve Macleod tak­ing out Gold in the u17 female divi­sion and Bronze in the Open female divi­sion; Leah Mar­tin scooped a Sil­ver in her divi­sion and Tom Har­vey a Bronze. Lachy Macleod just missed a medal claim­ing a 4th!



Clubbies hit the City to Surf!

Tuesday, August 28th, 2018

You may have wit­nessed some Beachie train­ing over the last few months… sand hills, steps, long runs and killer pow­er ses­sions!! Well, this cul­mi­nat­ed with a group chal­leng­ing them­selves in the City to Surf that ran on Sun­day 26 August. It was great to see the Mul­laloo flag be gal­lant­ly flown with a mix of youth and adults! Some mem­bers opt­ing for the 4km, some the 12km and a few con­quer­ing some per­son­al goals of half marathon.

Some walked/ran under the Mul­laloo Club colours, some for oth­er char­i­ties… to all we say — WELL DONE, you are all AWESOME!

A shout out to Carl Mills and Mar­tyn Pigg for keep­ing the Beachies hon­est at train­ing – and brrr, some of those evenings.


Notice to Members – 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

The Board of Direc­tors are look­ing for­ward to see­ing you at the Club’s Annu­al Gen­er­al Meet­ing this Fri­day. 

The Club Lounge will be open from 6pm (excludes the bar).

Please note the fol­low­ing details for the meet­ing:

  • mem­bers must arrive and be signed in by 7.30pm to be eli­gi­ble to vote;
  • light snacks will be avail­able fol­low­ing the con­clu­sion of the meet­ing (sup­plied by Swell);
  • Chase the Ace will be post­poned to the fol­low­ing Fri­day; and 
  • the bar will open at the con­clu­sion of the meet­ing. 

Eligibility to Vote

The Board of Direc­tors recog­nis­es the impor­tance of vot­ing eli­gi­bil­i­ty for mem­bers as the fun­da­men­tal build­ing block for the estab­lish­ment and oper­a­tion of the Club. As such, the Board and man­age­ment have aimed to under­stand and apply the Con­sti­tu­tion and By-Laws accord­ing­ly.

How­ev­er, recent inves­ti­ga­tion and debate about the eli­gi­bil­i­ty of mem­bers to vote has raised some issues with the inter­pre­ta­tion and appli­ca­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion and By-Laws. There is con­tin­u­ing con­tention, with the inves­ti­ga­tion and debate so far being incon­clu­sive and con­test­ed.

As such, the Board has decid­ed, with­out prej­u­dice or the estab­lish­ment of prece­dent, that the AGM of Fri­day 27 July 2018 will be con­duct­ed accord­ing to the min­i­mum require­ment of the Con­sti­tu­tion, being that all mem­bers over the age of 15 years will be eli­gi­ble to vote.

After the AGM, the Board will ful­ly inves­ti­gate the issue, by assign­ing suit­ably qual­i­fied mem­bers to the task and, if need­ed, seek­ing addi­tion­al legal assis­tance and advice. This will pro­vide ample time for the issue to be prop­er­ly addressed and resolved ahead of the Spe­cial Gen­er­al Meet­ing to be held before the end of 2018 to update the Con­sti­tu­tion and By-Laws.
