In our 99th year we gained many outstanding achievements throughout our junior section, lifesaving, education, member development and surf sports. We have again proudly maintained our record of "NO LIVES LOST WHILST BULLI SURF CLUB MEMBERS ARE ON PATROL".

Our results have been achieved through the combined efforts of members, parents & families, supporters & sponsors of Bulli Surf Life Saving Club.

This is a reminder for all club members. It would be great if you could attend and help celebrate our success, your contribution and acknowledge our worthy club award winners.

If you wish to attend please contact either Barry Adams (Secretary) or Keith Caldwell (President) . Names are required prior to Wednesday 18 July for catering purposes. 




Barefoot Bowls a success!

Yesterday on a mild sunny winter's afternoon approximately 80 Bulli surf club members & their friends put on display their barefoot bowls skills at Thirroul Bowling Leagues & Recreation Club.

Maybe some should stick with what they do best, surf club competition and patrols.

It was a great day of socializing with teams of 4 rotating around the 2 greens with cool refreshments in hand trying to shown their superior skills. Heaps of random prizes were also given to bowlers...good or bad!

After the outdoor green activities people moved inside to purchase raffle tickets and with a few silent auction items going under the hammer as well.

In all a good day & $1,800 raised for our surf sports athletes travelling to South Australia in November for the 2012 World Life Saving Championships (Rescue 2012).

Thanks to Keith Caldwell, Lincoln Costello, Maria Caldwell, Julie Heycott, Russ Jones, Barry Adams & Barry Lowe for their work on the day organising raffle prizes & silent auction items, selling raffle tickets, collecting payment from bowlers, cooking the BBQ.

Thankyou to our members & friends who supported this event. 

Special thanks to Glenn MacMillan (General Manager) of Thirroul Bowling Leagues & Recreation Club for allowing us use of their facilities.

The club received the Surf Sports Club of the Year title for its outstanding display at the 2012 Illawarra Branch Championships where our members completely dominated the combined junior & senior point-score winning over 200 medals.
