NEW JUNIOR SURF MEMBER

For those of you who have not yet met LACHLAN, Dave Smith (our head coach) and Abbey Brown (our Junior Surf Sports Coordinator from last year) have had a gorgeous little boy named LACHLAN.  I'm sure you will all get to see him at the beach with his little feet in the water soon.  Congratulations from all of us at Spencer Park Surf Life Saving!
 
 

AUCTION NIGHT

Thank you to all those families and friends who attended Auction Night.  It was great to see you all there.  We raised an amazing $5100.

OCEANS 16 - THIS IS FOR JUNIORS (under 14)

DATE: 3rd - 6th March 2016
LOCATION: Mt Maunganui
Several parents have spoken to Daryl regarding Oceans 16.  With Christmas fast approaching, can anyone who is considering going, please confirm your intentions via email to Daryl at dpsmashrepairs@xtra.co.nz by this Friday, as we need to discuss criteria and abilities, so we can make arrangements for accommodation, flights and transport.  We are once again staying at the Omanu Surf Life Saving Club.
 

SWIMMING

Swimming remains on offer on Wednesday nights at the Graham Condon Pool:- 7.00 - 7.45pm for beginners and the younger ones, and 7.45 - 8.30pm for faster ones and seniors.  Swimming is on for the next 2 Wednesdays (9th and 16th December), but after that, look at our facebook page for updates, as our coach is busy over Christmas.
 

PATROL TEAMS - LIFEGUARDING

We have a challenge on for our PATROL TEAMS.  Each patrol needs to take one serious photo of your patrol and another photo of your patrol team doing something crazy.  Let your imaginations run wild.  I know the patrol that did this on Saturday came up with something pretty cool.  This is going to be judged by Chris in January and the winning Patrol Team will all be getting a yummy lunch on their next patrol.  The serious pictures can be put up on the Patrol Covers facebook page and save the crazy ones until we need them.
 

UNIFORM

If you need uniform, please contact Kaylene Hamilton on her cell phone by text.  Alternatively, she is usually at the Graham Condon pool on Wednesdays.  Ph: 0274298050 (please text and she will reply asap).

HOLIDAY PROGRAMME

Please email juniors@spencerpark.co.nz if you are interested in extra training in the holidays.  We are trying to establish if there is enough interest, before organising this.
 

TRAVEL FUNDRAISING GROUP

We are endeavouring to set up a Travel Fundraising group this year to help our teams/competitors who need to travel to attend competitions.  This will cover all teams including the Juniors, Seniors, IRB Team, and Canoe Team of all ages.
The idea is to set up fundraising opportunities and those that take part in these activities will directly benefit from any profit.  Some of the ideas so far are, BBQ's at Clubhouse during Club Days, car wash, selling on the beach and a quiz night.
If anyone is interested in being involved with this group we will be holding a meeting at5.30pm Friday 11th December at the Club, by then we hope to have more definite information on some of these ideas.
If you have any questions prior to this meeting please contact either:
