I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jodie Muir who has had to step down as Chief Training Officer this year due to Uni Commitments.  Jodie has  do ne such an amazing job getting so many Bronze Squads through the past couple of years. Not only has she spent a huge amount of time on the beach and in the Club training the Bronzies, she has spent oodles of time doing all the planning, prep and paperwork behind the scenes, and all with a smile.  So thank you Jodie.
