The new fundraising event the First Swim of Summer which has been created to replace our Annual Polar Plunge for 2015 is on this Saturday, 28 November.

Lifeguards and junior surf members are needed from 11am until 2pm on this day to assist with the event.

Success in Europe

Well done to our three members Andy McMillan, Andrew Trembath and Carina Doyle who part of the Surf Life Saving New Zealand team who competed in the Orange and German Cups. Andy and Andrew are part of the team who now hold the world record for the Obstacle Relay event.

Jandal Day

Jandal Day is this year on next Friday, 4 December. The club needs as many volunteers for the day as possible for Jandal Day. It is hoped that parents are able to allow their children half a day off school to assist with the collections on the day. Parents and members are also encouraged to have a collection bucket kept at their workplace for donations throughout the month of December.
