Weekly Wrap 14th November 2014

posted 13 Nov 2014, 16:51 by Admin at CabaSLSC

Hey Everyone,

A GLORIOUS WEEKEND at Cabarita Beach as usual and slightly more laid back than last week.  Saturday afternoon saw the Punters Club celebrate the end of the punting season. Trevor was obviously a little confused thinking he was still at Melbourne Cup by wearing a tie. Did he actually leave the club or was he doing tax audits on the sly? My opinion is he was still jaded that Fred won best dressed at the cup function and this was his second chance. He was pipped at the post AGAIN but this time by the beautiful Daphne.

 Sunday saw the Nippers take over the beach with true Caba enthusiasm  with many of them focused on next week's trip to Yamba to compete at a  FNC Juniors carnival. Nippers  will still be running so  we thank the parents who are always on hand to help.

 The Club is very proud to announce the selection of four of their Nippers to represent the Far North Coast Branch at the 2014 NSW Interbranch Titles to be held at Catherine Hill Bay in December. Congratulation to Helina Bishop (under 12s) Cahrizma McDonald Cass and Finn Whitney (Under 13s) and Claudia Crawford (Under 14s). The four will join a team of 42 elite athletes from the Far North Coast Branch in a competition that is contested by the eleven branches in NSW. These branches consist of 5 metropolitan branches and  6 country branches and is certainly an enormous highlight on the carnival calendar.

The social calendar, on the other hand has the highlight of  comic legend Mandy Nolan amusing us on Saturday 13th December for Comedy and Canapes at Caba. Tickets are $30 per person and are available at the club. We also have our next Sunday Session on 23rd November featuring locals Holly, Sinead and Grace.

 Don't feel like cooking on Friday night? Come and join us on the deck for great views, cool drinks, raffles, the delicious Nippers Summer BBQ, there will also be fun Trivia tonight from 6.30pm. The Boaties raffles and Members draw will be held  Sunday evening.

BBQ will still be running - Under 7s Rostered.

Also a reminder to all Nippers and their Parents that your Nipper Cap and High Vis Vest  is required each week to participate on the beach and in the water.  No Cap - No Play.  Age Managers do not have spares and additional items can only be purchased at the completion of Nippers when the Merchandise area is opened.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our Volunteers for the work they have done so far this year, we rely solely on your efforts and they are appreciated very much.
