Weekly Wrap 7th August 2015

posted 7 Aug 2015, 16:17 by Admin at CabaSLSC

Hey Everyone,

Wow what a gorgeous week of sunshine and great surf.  Whilst there are some whales still heading north for us to enjoy it appears the dolphins and birds want in on the action, with all the bait fish around there has been plenty to see off the headland and the beach. The dolphins were so close on Sunday morning during board training, I thought one of them might do a flip and land in Jodie Wihlborgs lap on the sand.  No such luck for Jodie, but it did give our competition kids a bit of excitement.  This great weather is set to continue this weekend, so head down to Caba and enjoy all the action on the land as well as in the water.

I cant believe it is August already, so much happening this month but the big event for yours truly is of course our Black Tie Dinner.  Whilst ticket sales are slowly trickling in it would be great to see this event sold out in the next fortnight to assist with planning.  This will be a fantastic opportunity to don your finest and come celebrate 54 years of Surf Lifesaving at Cabarita.  This event is open to all Members of the Surf Club and community, so dont be shy, dust off your suits and frocks and come enjoy a wonderful evening of great food, entertainment and of course the coldest beer in Caba.  I am even sure our trusty Bar Wench Elke might come up with a couple of prizes for best dressed.  Tickets are $65.00 which includes a three course sit down dinner, drinks on arrival and entertainment.  Tickets are available at the Bar or rsvp to

Avoid having to deal with the cranky old lady in the office and Sign Up On Online, Nippers save $10.00 per child if they Sign Up Online before 23rd August.  Go to the website and follow the links.

Elke was a little sneaky last Sunday and ran the Members Draw early taking a few late comers by surprise. Remember it can be drawn anytime between 4.30 and 6.00pm on a Sunday, so if you want to be in with a chance to win a nice $850.00 this Sunday, make sure you are here by 4.30pm so you dont miss out.  Dont forget our Friday Bonus Draw as well, this has now crept up to a cool $360.00, drawn between 6 and 7pm, its the perfect time to grab a meal from the Cafe and relax after a hard week at the office.
