Hi Everyone,It's been a busy couple of months since the last update - but busy with Patrols more than Nippers.
Here is the Club Captains update:
Well, the school summer holidays are rapidly drawing to a conclusion. Our beach has been well patronised this summer with great water and beautiful weather. Thank you to all members who have volunteered their time and expertise. I am certain that our actions are worthwhile and are appreciated by the public.
We have just returned from a nine day cruise (very nice) so I am a little out of contact with the beach. I believe that everything is still traveling along well.
A few points of note:
* There are still a few outstanding proficiencies to be completed. It’s not to late.
* Congratulations to all our new Bronze and surf cert. Members. Thanks to all instructors.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2013 and an enjoyable AUSTRALIA DAY!!!
Cheers, Dave Napper
And some updates from the Monthly Club Meeting held on January 18th:
Whiteboard has been put up in the gear shed.
On the whiteboard, please write up any damages that may happen or items which need to be fixed or replaced. If equipment is damaged during use please write up how it happened. This helps the Committee and Gear Steward to work out if things can be done to stop similar damage happening again. For example - we may change how and where items are stored.
Adrian Hutchinson, our Gear Steward - will prioritise work, arrange for action to be taken and report progress to the Committee.
Getting Expenses Reimbursed
It has been difficult to keep track of the receipts being provided to the Treasurer for reimbursement. To help out, a tray and Cheque Requisition form has been put in the cupboard where the Patrol Log is kept. Please attach the receipt to the form and fill in the details. The form is on the website as well. You must get approval from Ando before spending the money - preferably by email so the approval can be attached to the form.
When on Patrol
The Country Titles were held at South West Rocks at the end of January. You probably didn't know that James Langley (Patrol Captain) won a surfing medal, and Cassie Pensini and Suzie Bell who paddle Surf Boats for Tacking Point won a Gold Medal.
There's lots going on. Anyone who is looking for something to get involved in...
call Ando 0400 867 571.
