The NSW Surf Club Open Day is on this Sunday and Pambula Beach Surf Life Saving Club will are inviting the public to come along and learn about what the club has to offer.
On Sunday, October 16, five Far South Coast surf clubs will host a number of activities that will appeal to the whole family. These include lifesaving demonstrations, clubhouse tours, barbecues and displays.
Last season there were 2,100 surf lifesavers registered across the area while Far South Coast Branch President Tony Rettke belies that Surf Club Open Day is a positive initiative to help boost numbers for the season.
“There are so many benefits to joining a surf club. Apart from learning vital lifesaving skills, you can get involved with support services such as powered water craft, get fit and healthy participating in surf sports, or simply give something back to the community through voluntary patrols, all while making lifelong friends,” Tony Rettke enthused.
“One of the great things about joining a surf club is that you walk into a ready-made group of friends. It’s also a great way to spend some family time together, while doing something good for the community.”
Far South Coast clubs were finalising preparations last weekend to ensure that they give the public the best possible insight into what surf lifesavers achieve throughout the year.
“There are literally hundreds of volunteer roles to choose from, everything from patrolling the beach on a Sunday morning, to radio communications, administration and fundraising, or managing a team of competitors at a surf carnival,” said Tony Rettke.
Mr Rettke and Far South Coast surf lifesavers invite you to visit your local surf club and learn more about who we are, what we do and how you and your family can become involved with our great organisation.
Pambula Beach Surf Life Saving club will be open from 10am until noon.
