Weekly Wrap 3rd December 2011

posted 2 Dec 2011, 14:24 by Admin at CabaSLSC

Hey Everyone,

Great to see the nippers turn up for board training on Thursday afternoon. Despite the atrocious conditions ( I thought I must have dozed off and woken up in Melbourne in the middle of winter) 10 or 12 brave souls turned up to take instruction from Sensei Les in the art of board paddling.A stirring sight, especially as I was warmly ensconced in the members area watching on. The northerly sweep was so strong  some of the kids thought they'd transferred to Cudgen.  Best of luck to all those competing in Byron Bay over the weekend, I hope the conditions improve a bit for you all.


Last Sunday a group of our young adult members all chipped in and bought the winning raffle ticket in The Boaties raffle. They then proceeded to get out the BBQ and cook up their prize whilst enjoying a friendly game of basketball out the front of the club. It was great to see so many of them enjoying their club and socialising together at the end of the week. Patrols finished, time to relax, good work guys.

Luckily our Admin Captain is not in charge of transportation or security.  Rode to work, locked bike up, performed administration role, superbly, then realised ....... &*$#%@... no keys with which to unlock bicycle. Bar Captain came to the rescue with loan vehicle and then had to demonstrate how to start said vehicle. (depress clutch with left foot, turn key with right hand,........ damn these manual cars are tricky!!).  Not exactly a shining moment in the life of our favourite blonde.

The man from down below has this week sunk to a new low with his criticism of the current viewing schedule at the club. Not content with ridiculing the  past three weeks of scintillating golf he now dares to deride our national sport. While proud Aussies and Kiwis stood shoulder to shoulder to watch their gladiators do battle in the First Test, himself was spotted in the corner mumbling something about "cure for insomnia".... for shame. The man in question is also questioning the ethics and morals of the modern day thief. Somebody had the hide to steal the ashtray from his ute but left the ute. No manners these guys, what's the world coming to.
