NCC NEWS – SURF TO SHORE – 9TH OCTOBER 2023
I’m excited to share with you that we have taken delivery of our new side by side ATV and also a brand new IRB. Our ATV has been 50% funded by the Freshwater Bendigo Community Bank, marking an ongoing commitment by this bank to help its local community, we at NCC SLSC have been very lucky over the years to receive significant financial support from Freshwater Bendigo.
So my ask to all our members is if you are in need of banking products or services please take a look at Freshwater Bendigo Community Bank
Last Saturday it was very pleasing to see all 4 of our IRB’s out in the water for an IRB Drivers and Crew training session. We have a number of patrol members being trained under the guidance of Justin Callard, Ray, Matt Truman, Matt O’Connor and Spider. Meaning the more members who become drivers and crew the more capability our patrols have in rescue situations.
As mentioned in the last Newsletter our Aquaculture 2km Ocean Swim and True Protein 3 Points Challenge is on 9 December 2023. Team Leaders for course marshaling, water safety, first aid, transition areas will be reaching out shortly for assistance – this is an opportunity for all members, including nipper parents to get involved in a fantastic community event, our major fundraiser, so if you can volunteer a few hours you won’t regret it. Thank you in advance!
Finally, to our Patrol Members volunteering their time to keep our beaches safe this weekend, as always a big “Thank you”.
See you on the beach or in the surf!

Thanks to all our patrolling members who attended their rostered patrols for the past two weeks. Last weekend in particular was terrible beach weather but luckily we had some very committed members turn up.
Patrol Captain Duncan Grady made great use of the lack of punters on the beach, and conducted a guided tour of the surf club for some of our newer members. He is now taking bookings for the next tour. Sarah Wanden organised the uniform cupboard from the shambles it had become, into a very ordered supply warehouse – please keep it that way! Thanks Sarah and Duncan.
Please let me know if you would like to patrol on Christmas Day. We traditionally have 4 x 2 hour time slots so feel free to cover one or more of those.
