  Congratulations to our totally amazing Under 14s for a very successful Take Over last Sunday. Take Over you question?? The Age Managers were stripped of their shirts, relieved of their duties for the morning and demoted to Nippers. The new Age Managers then entertained little Nippers and our age challenged Nippers to a great day of games, challenges and way too much fun. The morning finished with a surprise visit from Santa who just happened to be cruising past on this scooter. The morning a great success and is a credit to the 14’s.

  Not content with just Christmas break up day fun, the Under 14s also coordinated our first ‘Take 3 for the Sea’ mini beach clean up. Nippers and their parents scoured the beach and grass areas around the beach entrance and the end result was one and half kilos of plastic debris and a much cleaner beach. ‘Take3’ ambassador Shakyra Gillard would like to thank everyone who participated with our clean up and I would like to thank Shakyra, Zane, Chloe and Melia who then went on to itemise and tally the rubbish. This important data was then sent  to Project Manager Sarah Beard in Sydney for analysis. The kids should be proud of themselves. These small steps toward a healthier environment are going to have a big impact on our community.

 Another congratulation goes to the  FNC Team who returned last Sunday from competing at the NSW SLS Interbranch Titles at Cape Hawke. The victorious team won again the Country Cup and placed 5th overall  on the leaderboard out of 11 Branches. Excellent results from all. As for  our Caba girls,  Cahrizma placed 3rd in her sprints and 4th in flags, Jemima placed 8th in her sprints and 9th in flags and Claudia placed 3rd in her sprints and 6th in flags. Well done!

  Sand athletes, Finn, Reef, Cahrizma, Stirling and Claudia are competing at the Fastest Man on the Sand at Kurrawa this Saturday. This is the first time for them all at this competition and we wish them lots of luck.
