2011-2012 Office Holders
Our Annual General Meeting was held last Sunday in the surf club meeting room to elect our office holders for the 2011-2012 season.
Concerns were held that we might have a lack of numbers due to the Shamrocks Rugby Union Football Club having a deferred game allocated on the day, members at the Nutri Grain trails in Noosa and some usual attendees unavailable due to social/work commitments. Well we didn't need to worry with over 40 people attending on the day.
The 2010-2011 Annual Report was available and thanks must go to Barry/Denise Adams, Keith Caldwell & Brad/Sarah at Colour Print Solutions for putting the report together.
Getting back to the election of office holders, Keith Caldwell was elected un-opposed as President and will lead an enthuastic executive & management committee. There were a few changes, most notably ones being in our Lifesaving section, with Jake Hogarth stepping up as Club Captain. It has been a long time since we have had a young 21 old as Club Captain with the past years our patrols being looked after by previous Club Captains such as Paul Hennessy, Paul Brightwell & Noel Freeman. Everybody was impressed at the meeting about Jake's involvement in club activities over the past few years and many believe he will do an excellent job.
The club has also decided to run with 2 Vice Club Captains, Jamie Caldwell with last years Club Person of the Year Dave Greene stepping up to the mark to lend their expertise within our Lifesaving ranks. Al Green and Wayne Heycott, 2 hard working members have taken on the roles of IRB/ATV Captain & Vice Captain respectively.
The big change in the Junior Activities Section sees Peter Lord taking over from Leanne Lunney. Peter is very keen to continue the great work that Leanne did in her 2 years as the Junior Chair-Person.
