Weekly Wrap 30th December 2011

posted 2 Jan 2012, 16:46 by Admin at CabaSLSC
Hey Everyone,

We hope you all had a very safe and Merry Christmas despite the heavy seas and weather!  Hopefully it will start to clean up soon and we can enjoy the rest of the festive season with some sun and safe surf!   Remember the Bar is open every day, so get up there and enjoy the best view and coldest beer in Caba!  I hear the Bar Captain is always ready for a yarn, so go chew his ear off, there is plenty to chew!

Despite the heavy seas, our ever so brave IRB Drivers and Crew decided to still venture out and hone their skills in some pretty hectic conditions.   Our own IRB Captain Kyle Beattie seems determine to win the “Duck Award” at the end of the year with a pretty spectacular flip on Saturday Morning, thankfully it was all captured on the Go Pro Camera  and also witnessed by the upcoming Bronze Squad, needless to say, none of which are now that keen on doing their Crewies!  We all knew Hayden Draman the Crewie at the time was pretty nimble, but who knew he could fly so high!  Not to be outdone, our previous IRB Captain Steve Dale thought he would he would try and one up Kyle with an even more impressive flip two days later, which not only seen the Driver and Crew being rescued but also some of the rescuers requiring to be rescued, confused yet?  So it appears  there is a bit of competition for this “Duck Award”, it might be time for the other drivers to get in on the action.  From a personal point of view as I pay the bills for the repairs to the motors, I am thinking of installing stickers on all IRB’s “This Way Up”, maybe they have all just been a bit confused and can’t tell the top from the bottom.

Patrol One, Whitneys Warriors have come up with a New Code to be used in an emergency!  It is Code 25 and can be used for any of the following:   “a Draman requiring rescuing”,  “ a Draman in need of First Aid”,  “a Draman requiring an Ambulance”  or the ever popular “a Draman lost at schoolies, please return home”.   We are a bit concerned that Code 25 may become our most used code and Surf Life Saving Australia may have to introduce this into the next Bronze Manual.  Watch this space!

Apparently my skills at playing Cupid are falling far short of the mark, as all my calls of late have only ended in heartbreak, so I have decided to  put my skills to good rather than evil!  Anyone looking at ending a romance, email me your names, I will whack them in the Weekly Wrap and whoolah, job done!  I do jest, and hopefully my radar will improve with age, who knows the rest of me has!
