1st Motor Neurone Disease Walk in Illawarra

Well everybody was worried about the weather for the 1st Motor Neurone Disease Walk in the Illawarra on Sunday 24 February. But blue skies, warm weather with a nice north easterly wind made the 5km walk a pleasant one.

318 people registered along with 35 dogs and to date the Motor Neurone Disease Association of NSW along with all of the supporters on the day & on line donations have raised $30,990.

Massive effort and well done to Kym & Shelley-Anne as chief organisers. Bulli Surf LIfe Saving Club was proud to be involved in such a worthy cause.

Thank you to our members that assisted on the day selling drinks & setting up tents. Of course a big thankyou to the Lions Club of Woonona who operated the BBQ for the day.


Nippers cancelled tomorrow Sun 24 due to weather conditions & dangerous surf



Due to the eact coast low which developed off Northern NSW and has now moved south along the NSW coast, thus creating dangerous surf conditions over the next few days.

An Easterly/South Easterly swell of up to 6m is expected with 40-60km/h S-SE winds are also forecast, extending through until Sunday morning.

Heavy scattered showers have already hit the Illawarra region and with all of this making conditions poor for coastal activities.

Bulli Nippers for this Sunday 24 February has been cancelled.


Branch Championships - Thankyou

Thank you to all our members that assisted with the successful running of the 2013 Junior and Senior Illawarra Branch Championships hosted by Bulli over the past two weekends.

On both these days, our members worked tirelessly from 5.30am fulfilling duties such as as arena setup and pull down, IRB personnel, water safety, patrol members, work party, BBQ helpers/drink sales, parking attendants, officials meal organisers, carnival officials, cup cake sellers and the list goes on....too many to name individually.

It really was an outstanding display of a club working together as ONE! and each and everyone of you should be very proud of making the event the success it was.

On the competition front, we had kids from U8s through to our over 50s masters race in individual and team events and did the club proud.  Too many results to name in the email.  Results will be recorded in the annual report at the end of the season.  Our nippers finished 2nd and Seniors 1st with the club winning the overall pointscore for the 8th consecutive season.  Every athlete contributed to this great result and their sportsmanship was clearly to the forefront.
