Weekly Wrap 9th October 2015

posted 8 Oct 2015, 19:37 by Admin at CabaSLSC

Hey Everyone,

Well as much as we all love sunshine, this bit of wet weather has been most welcome to cool things down a little and promote a little growth in our gardens, I hope that you all did though enjoy the glorious weather we had over the holidays and long weekend and made the most of it.

With the Patrol Season fully kicked in now,  it is so great to see all our Volunteers enjoying their time on the beach, catching up with friends they have missed in the off season, spotting the whales migrating back south but most importantly ensuring that the community has a safe place to swim and enjoy.  With that said, we are obviously always looking for new recruits to come join our Surf Club Family and a little birdy has told me that our current bronze squad is brimming with new Members who have commenced training this past week.  We welcome then and hope they enjoy learning all about Surf Lifesaving and the vital role it plays in the community.

Members, I know how you all love dressing up, so I am shocked to see tickets sales to the Halloween Party are quite dismal, we havent had a start of season welcome this year, so this is a perfect opportunity for the Patrols and Members to get together and have a drink and a dance.  DJ Mick will be back and if you went to the R Party you know he does a great job.  Tickets are only $15.00 and includes a drink on arrival and some snacks.   This event is open to all Members and the Public, so grab a group of friends, hit up the $2 shops for some scary garb and come enjoy our great venue.  There will even be a photo booth to capture your efforts.

Melbourne Cup Tickets are selling quick, I would suggest that if havent purchased yet, do so this weekend.

Nippers - Training Tomorrows Lifesavers Today

Congratulations to all the Nippers that competed at Wave Warriors last weekend, great results, for a full wrap up, check the Nipper News on the Website here or this weeks Tweed Valley Weekly.  Best of luck to those who are heading up the coast for the Coolangatta Gold this Sunday, for everyone else Nippers this Sunday is at Murwillumbah Pool for all age groups at 9am.  This is the compulsory swim proficiency, so if you cant make it, please ensure that you download a Pool Proficiency Form from our Website and have your swimming instructor sign off.  These forms needs to be back to the office no later than 25th October 2015.

All Nippers should have recieved a book of raffle tickets last weekend for our Melbourne Cup Calcutta Fundraiser, if you were not there or did not recieve your book, please see your Age Managers this weekend.  These raffle tickets are due back no later than Noon on the 1st November.  

Competitors, we have received advice from the Branch that if you intend on competing interstate, you MUST gain clearance from the Far North Coast Branch in advance.  This is for all Surf Lifesaving events ie Wave Warriors, Cooly Gold etc.  Please email Les on well in advance with your intentions to allow him time to gain clearance.

There has also been a change in the Calendar, the 12 and over Calendar has now been moved from Cabarita to Salt on Sunday 25th October, so for all the Nippers not competing at this Carnival, there will now be normal Nippers at the beach on this day.
