AUSTRALIAN REPS - Open Men's boat crew
Good Luck to the Bulli Open Men’s boat crew who recently were selected to represent AUSTRALIA in the Trans Tasman Test Match Series which is to be held on Saturday the 7th of February 2015 at Waihi Beach, North Island, New Zealand in conjunction with the North Island Surf Boat Championships.
The guys fly out today (Thursday 5 February) from Sydney after a function at SLSA HQ to mark their selection.
The crew is made up of Shane Geloven (sweep), Dean Roberts, Heath Mercer, Ben Lowe & Adam Barlow. Dan Porra, the usual bowman for the crew went on holidays over Xmas & the New Year period when the selection carnival was on, so Adam stepped in and the rest is history.
Speaking of history these guys now bring the total to 22 Bulli members that have proudly represented AUSTRALIA in lifesaving, education & surf sports teams over our 102 years of history.
Club President Keith Caldwell said, “These blokes have raced consistently over the past few seasons and to see their excitement when they were named was priceless. The hours these guys put in the gym, on the road & in the boat is unbelievable. But also all are patrolling members of the club and help out with fundraising as well. They deserved this and it is great for our club, the past 12 seasons we have had members represent AUSTRALIA, which is an outstanding achievement.”
