Last Season we held a "Season Launch" function just prior to the start of Summer and due to last year's success we're running this again - same format and same location. This is an ideal way to get the Club together and to reward those that will be helping for this Season. So, mark Saturday 19th November in your diary and lookout for your Invitation
Our Building Committee is continuing to work away in the background on this important and major project for the Club. In recent months the Building Committee called for expressions of interest to tender as Architects for the new Clubhouse and we received 39 applications ! The 39 were ranked and shortlisted to 16, which was further ranked and shortlisted to 6. The 6 shortlisted Architects were invited to submit their tender which was then reviewed in detail by our independent appointed Project Manager. Following this, the Executive Committee have accepted the recommendation of the Building Committee (and Project Manager) that Jackson Clements Burrows (JCB) be appointed. JCB has experience with Surf Life Saving projects - working on the Brighton LSC and South Melboure LSC developments. Next steps include finalising the Project Brief, finalising the Concept Design and submission of Planning approval before the end of year.
70th Anniversary celebrations update - As previously advised, we have set a tentative date (Saturday 21st October 2017) and booked a venue (Monahan Centre Queensclfif) for this function but things have stalled as there are not people putting their hand up to run this event. SO, without a Chair and volunteers this milestone is at risk of coming and going.
We are getting close to our busiest time and there are all sorts of calls for helpers. Calls for Age Managers, Group Leaders and Instructors for Nippers in Schools, Nippers, Cadets, Bronze & Adult Bronze have all been issued with minimal replies. Please jump on the Club website, Facebook or your email and see how to sign up and get involved !
