You would have read about the Australian Championships at Kurrawa Beach over the weekend, and the tragedy of a Maroochydore competitor Matthew Barclay in the U15 Board race. From all the members of Burning Palms SLSC we pass on our condolences to his family, friends and the members of Maroochydore Surf Life Saving Club.

Our competitors flew the Brown and Green over the weekend but to no avail, with no medals won.

 

Last weekend saw the New South Wales Surf Life Saving Championships at Kingscliff, which seemed to be very successful.

The beach had serious erosion, so it was very difficult to be located in front of the Cudgen Surf Club and see the Boats at Fingal the water area 2.5k north of the clubhouse with the beach events at the southern end of the beach.

This made it difficult for competitors, officials and spectators but all events were run under a medium sea and fine weather.

Justin ahrdman and Mick Bretherton are running an ARTC course on Saturday the
14th of April.

The course expands on the foundations that were learnt in the Bronze
Medallion and contains important emergency care procedures that are
part and parcel of being a surf lifesaver.

It will run for 1 day only.We will be indoors all day, No outdoor or
water activities are required in this course.

 

That major event of the year is on again.

Just because we do not have a Club Captain or Vice Club Captain (if you thought the event was not going to happen then you were wrong) - it will be bigger and better, with more events and more fun so make sure you attend points for attendance on the day go towards the winning the club patrol competition.

Events will be as follows not necessarily in this order:

1)      Surf Race all ages.

2)      Board Race all ages

The easy to follow steps are: 

1. All accommodation should be booked in advance by emailing info@burningpalmsslsc.com.au with the dates and number of people staying. 

2. You will get an email back confirming the booking and advising if your preferred space is available. Patrolling members get preference. Key pickup will also be advised.

 

The Club competed at the Freshwater Australia Day Carnival and congratulations to the March Past Team who were placed a creditable 5th place. March Past Coach David Faulkner was disappointed but they will be training hard this week for the Coogee Carnival this coming weekend.
