There is a big day happening at the beach on Sunday.
BM Proficiency: An external assessor is arriving to conduct the annual proficiency assessment for all Bronze Medallion holders. This assessment needs to start right at 9am as the Bronze holders are needed to enable the Nippers to do their water-based activities.
Patrol #4: please arrive early to make sure the beach is set up and patrolled for 9am.
Other Bronze Holders: please arrive early to help Patrol #4 set up, and get the assessment underway as early as possible.
Nipper Parents (who are not Bronze Holders): please arrive closer to 9.30am to help set up for Nippers, hand out pink rashies etc so Nippers can get underway at 10am. The Bronze holders who usually help won't be available until the Proficiency is finished.
Trainee Bronze/SRC members (who are not Nipper parents): training for BM/SRC will start at 11am.
Remember: Sausage sizzle for lunch after Nippers so plan to stay around a little while after 12pm.
Nipper Board Paddling: is currently being run fortnightly - next session is Friday 1st Nov. Once more Nipper parents are qualified Bronze Holders we will be able to look at running board paddling every week. There is currently not enough qualified Bronze Holders to meet the water safety requirement each week.
Adult Board Paddling: everyone is welcome to come down to the river when the Nippers are paddling. It is a great opportunity to build your board skills and strength in the safety of the river. It's important to let Glen or Linda know (contact details on website) so arrangements can be made to bring enough adult boards. If you have room to pick up one or two in your own vehicle that will always help. We pick up the trailers at the Surf Club @3.30pm. Meet us there to collect your board.
See you on the beach :-)
