ROUND 2 OF THE FASTEST MAN ON SAND series was held at Coolangatta last Saturday. The rainy conditions certainly did not dampen the enthusiasm of Cabarita Beach SLSC  Team  attending and out of  over 250 of Queensland best beach athletes there were 8 from FNC Branch, the only representatives from NSW. Five of the FNC group were the Caba Crew consisting of Klyde Milroy, Stirling Crawford, Reef Sommerville, Finn Whitney and Claudia Crawford. It was yet another great carnival with even greater results and much personal improvement.  All the team made it to finals in their events with Reef placing 3rd in the U13s and Claudia taking out series winner in the u15s for the beach sprint events. A fantastic achievement from all.

  Cudgen Headland SLSC for hosted an extremely successful day last Sunday. There are many friendships between the two clubs and the day offered the kids the opportunity to compete with mates and ham up that friendly rivalry. By all accounts everyone enjoyed it and I have heard many comment that they would like it to turn into an annual event.

 Back on home turf we had a mini mini nippers day and if the squeals of delight coming off the beach was any sign, it was a morning packed full of fun. Thank you to those age managers involved for coordinating the activities and to The two Matildas, Chloe, Melia and Michael for their one on one tuition with younger Nippers.
