It may only be August and still Winter but there is a lot of action 'behind the scenes' in and around the Club in preparation for the approaching busy Summer period. I thank all Committee members for their contribution and efforts in making Point Lonsdale the best Surf Life Saving Club.
I would like to touch on a few of these below.
A great deal of energy and effort is going in to our emerging Aquatic Sports area. To assist with this development, I am delighted to announce, (welcome and thank) Fowles Auctions + Sales in their recent generous donation. This donation, combined with a Club contribution will see the largest capital investment in this important area of our Club for many many years. This, combined with a recent 'Think Tank' session and an online sign up form (see link below) are some recent developments in our commitment to Aquatic Sports. I thank our Senior Vice President, Liam Petrie-Allbutt for his efforts in these important initiatives.
Our Training and Assessment Area are also hard at work, with two courses planned and advertised in the near future. The Silver Medallion (IRB Drivers) and Training Officers Course are important awards that help to keep many events going, so please see Facebook for more information and get on board !
Our Vice President (Lifesaving), Paul Lunny is overseeing a review into the Bronze and Cadet Camps and is still on the lookout for a Training Development Officer (Senior Trainer). This would be a great experience and something for a budding teacher to add to their CV !
Our new Clubhouse project is simmering away in the background and I would like to announce and thank Chris Harper for being appointed as Chair of the Building Committee and Ivan St.Clair as Chair of the Fundraising Committee. More news about these sub committee's of the Executive Committee will follow in due course.
