Around The Club


Glenn Sweeny, Brett Wheeler, Jamie Thorpe, Paul Jones & Lincoln Costello hit the jackpot at 2017 Awards Dinner

  • President’s Award:

Glenn Sweeny & Brett Wheeler

So many outstanding members that continually do the hard yards around the surf club…These guys for the past 2 seasons fit the bill. Over the past 2 seasons Club President Keith Caldwell has watched these 2 guys commit to training our nipper kids during the week, on Sunday mornings & look after them at carnivals, very time consuming, plus having their own kids competing. They also commit to water safety on Sunday mornings with nippers, engaged in the Riding the Wave program on some of the days & involved in club activities.
