THE COOLANGATTA GOLD is Australia's most iconic surf race, Where it might not stop the Nation like the Melbourne Cup, it certainly demands the attention of most of us involved in surf clubs. The Caba Crew Nippers would like to congratulate their very own favourite Ironman Ali Day for his success as do they our very own Nipper Ironmen Finn Whitney, Reef Sommerville and Cooper Taylor who competed in the Coolangatta Gold Youth Challenge with excellent results. I'm predicting some home grown Caba faces on the back of Nutrigrain boxes, or am I just  overly proud. Either way all three are champions in my eyes.

 Pool proficiency was lots of fun last Sunday. The Nippers went through their paces and then spent the rest of the morning practicing rescue skills. I think they actually all forgot that they were learning vital skills for pool and beach safety. The smiles were aplenty and with that confidence and competence grows. Well done all.

All Nippers should have received a book of raffle tickets last weekend for our Melbourne Cup Calcutta Fundraiser, if you were not there or did not receive 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.
