Sportsman's Luncheon 3 May - great success  

On Friday 3May @ Bulli Workers Club we held our Sportsman's Luncheon.

This is a post event follow up & update on how things went.....

It was a great day supported by our members, friends & sponsors of the club...128 in attendance with guest speakers Trent Waterhouse, Malcolm 'Miracle' Johnston & Duncan Armstrong outstanding along with MC Jared Constable.

As mentioned on the day part proceeds from 2 live auction items will be sent to the Go Fund Me fundraiser for Ross & Andrew Powell of Port Campbell SLSC who tragically lost their lives on Easter Sunday. RIP guys, you are heroes in our eyes.

Thank you to the businesses that supported the event with raffle. silent & live auction items, it was greatly appreciated.

A big thank you to our organising committee of Keith Caldwell, Greg Miller, Simon Jones, Jamie Caldwell & Glen Meznaric for their time & effort in coordinating the day.

We must also mention Sally Fitzgibbons & Trent Salisbury who donated items on the day as well, thank you so much!

A message from Duncan Armstrong OAM Olympian who was one of the guest speakers was really nice of him;

" A heartfelt thanks for inviting me to be part of a great sportsmen lunch with the happy Bulli SLC ‘family’.I thoroughly enjoyed myself from the time I walked into Bulli Workers Club to the time I walked out. Meeting everyone and sharing the stage with Trent and ‘Miracle’ was a privilege, so thank you very much gentlemen for organising all the travel arrangements and making me so welcome. Thanks again fellas and if there is anything I can do for you and the club in future please don’t hesitate to contact me ".

We made some $$$ on the day, it was a success.



Patrols - Red & Yellow Flags down 28 April 2019 

On Sunday 28 April the red & yellow flags came down at Bulli Beach for the completion of season 2018-2019.

Patrol Team 1 were on all day on this Sunday – as mentioned the last patrol day of the 2018-19 season. Calm conditions and beautiful weather made it a nice day to be on the beach.

Of behalf of our President Keith Caldwell & Director of Life Saving Markus Meier-Lindner we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our patrol teams, plus all additional volunteers for your service, help and support to make this season a great success.

The ultimate measure for this is that we can now claim the '106th season with no lives lost whilst our club members have been on patrol'. 👏🤩🙏👍👌

Our lifesaving leaders in the club were pleased to see heaps of good things happening during the season...namely good shift attendance, wearing of the red & yellow uniform, members organising timely swaps was clearly one of the standout achievements which made sure we had the relevant award qualifications on the beach to service & look after the community.

All this comes about from communications, which we had in bucket loads, members engaged & we thank them for this.

We also had a end of season debrief on Sunday in the club rooms🍕🍕🍕🍕🍺🍷 with some great ideas/thoughts on how we can continually improve our lifesaving services.

The season in a few snap shots:
- 4,333 volunteer patrolling hours
- 92 patrolling members
- 7 patrol teams
- 15 rescues
- 37 first aid provisions
- 1,105 preventions
- 0 lives lost

Thanks again and enjoy the well deserved winter guys & girls deserve it!😎
