Junior lifesaving is in for an exciting season at Pambula Beach if the Nipper registration day on Sunday is any indication.
Nipper president, Andrew Holt, was ecstatic with the number of registrations, especially from a lot of families signing up for the first time.
"Over 80 children were registered on Sunday which is a fantastic considering many families had other commitments last weekend", Andrew said.
"I had calls from people saying there were joining Nippers this season, but simply could not make it to rego day", he explained.
For those wanting to start Nippers on Sunday, registrations will again be taken at the clubhouse from 9.30am this Sunday.
As it is the first Nipper's of the year, Andrew and his crew have asked that all families be there from 9.30am for an on-time start.
All Patrol Captains are reminded that the season starts this weekend with Patrol 2 first up on Sunday from 10am to 2pm. There will be a Patrol Captains proficiency on Saturday 5 November at 10am with Peter Bootes.
All other life savers are invited to complete their dry proficiency between Monday, November 14 through to Thursday November 19 between 7:30 to 9:30pm at the clubhouse. The wet proficiency will be completed on your first patrol by your captain.
Club Captain, Ann Smith, asks that members who have not become financial do so as soon as possible, and complete the online Skills Maintenance questions prior to doing dry proficiencies. These can be found in your portal at portal.sls.com.au, then Lifesaving Online, Courses, Online learning, Skills Maintenance.

Kym O'Halloran is looking for a few extra helpers on Saturday, November 12 to assist with the Cooma Car Club luncheon.

The cars will be on show in the grounds of the surf club from around noon, and the club will be hosting the enthusiasts for a "Fish and Chip" luncheon. Kym can be contacted on 64943094.
