A huge thankyou to our officials Sharleen S & Jason B and to Caleb T & Faith L for the last minute hussle to get IRB water cover. They were put under the pump and they stepped up and delivered in fine form! Also note that Noosa SLSC helped out with loaning us an IRB. Biggest thanks saved till last, Club Captain Mick S pretty much pulled this whole weekend together.
The Surf Sports team is now gearing up for the Aussie Titles at the end of the month back down at the Gold Coast.
