different things during Winter. Children are still taking part in
weekly swimming lessons at the Hawksbury Pool. Some are still out
there surfing and enjoying the water on our lovely autumn days. We
have several members taking part in the Become a Lifeguard programme.
There is also Patrol Support work which you or someone you know may be
interested in. We need more lifeguards to help patrol our lovely
beach. A few afternoons from 12-5 during the sumer months is all it
takes so please give some thought to coming along and joining us. We
have great facilities, good gear and need you. Contact our President
Kaye Burns for more info: 482 2494 or 027 482 2494.
We are also on the lookout for people to help with coaching. Do you
have a sporting background or maybe you would just like to be part of
the club and help out. You may be an ex-clubbie who misses all the
friendships and want to give something back to the wonderful group of
young people who belong to the club. Once again please contact Kaye
for more info.
Our young clubbies gained some excellent results in competition this
season. Special mention to the following young ones who travelled to
Christchurch to take part in the Southern Regional (Wellington
included) Championships: Elise and Jordan Dickson, Kathryn and Tom
Burns, Rebecca and Sarah Henderson. Among them they gained 11 medals
for different events. They gave their very best till they dropped.
Well done to all of you we are very proud to have you in our club and
wish you all the best for next season.
Our club will be represented at the local Anzac Service where we will
carry the flag and lay a wreath. Thankyou to the Garden Club Ladies
who always make the club wreath for us to lay.
The Surf Club's Garage Sale at the A&P Clearing Sale was a beautiful
day and we enjoyed being part of the "Show". A huge thankyou to
everyone from Blueskin Bay and further who donated goods for us to
sell. Thanks also to everyone who supported our three tents full of
all sorts of bits and pieces. The day brought in just over $1000.00
for us to add to our building fund. We still have the following items
for sale: dishwasher, large mirror,golf trundler and clubs, books,
records, soup bowls, 2 deck chairs, 2 air beds, portacot, sheets,
duvets, single bed ends and mattress, rice cooker, 2 suitcases, ski
pants size 10ish, tyre chains. Please contact Lyn 4822896 if you wish
to purchase any of the above.
Lastly thankyou to all our volunteer lifeguards, without you giving
your time freely we would not be here and part of this wonderful "In
It For Life" organisation. Thankyou to all the folk from the Blueskin
Bay area who support us in so many ways.
