The Camden Haven Surf Club wrapped up another successful season on Saturday May 21.
During the 2015/2016 season Camden Haven Surf Club’s members have kept an eye on over 9000 visitors to the beach, with 578 preventatives and 5 rescues.
Members were awarded with their patrolling certificates as well as certificates of achievement for those who advanced their training.
Notable awards included 100% patrol hours, these were issued to Glen O’Brien, Michelle Garvan, Tony Worton, Jenny Cooper, Susie Bell, Rob Dingle, James Langley and Gayl Ellis.
Our branch and country representative Cassie Pensini collected her well-earned medals and received a huge round of applause for her solo involvement in competition, flying the Camden Haven flag high.
The junior section of our club is growing and growing and we have plenty of enthusiastic and energetic juniors coming through.
Every year it is hard to choose a deserving junior as they all do such a great job.
Junior Patrol Person of the year went to Mali Gilbert who achieved an impressive 111 voluntary hours on the beach.
Junior Club Person of the year went to Alisha Cooper for her efforts in patrols, Nippers, fundraising and being an all-rounder. Carley Taylor picked up a Highly Commended in this category.
Senior Patrol Person of the year went to Tony Worton who put in 106 voluntary hours on the beach, this was Tony’s second year in a row in winning this award.
Senior Club Person of the year went to Susie Bell.
With the off-season approaching the club members become involved in fundraising events.
The main fundraisers for the year include the first inaugural ‘Battle of the Seas’, a combined bowls day with Laurieton Fishing Club. This will be held on June 19 at North Haven Bowling Club.
King of the Mountain will be back in August, bigger and better again this year!
