OGSLSC success at Coolangatta Gold 2017
This epic event was held in early October, with the short course on Saturday 7 October and long course on 8 October. Three OGSLSC juniors participated on Saturday and all did brilliantly:
- Cam Bohan 6th in U19s male with a time of 2.38.40
- Jesse Coulson 12th in U19s male with a time of 2.43.54
- Briely Wight 13th in U19s female with a time of 3.17.25
- Bill Strachan was the club's only entrant in the long course on Sunday. He completed the gruelling 41.5km event in a time of 5.47.52, finishing 6th in the 50+ section.
Congratulations to these four - the club is immensely proud of their achievements.
Removal of surf craft from clubhouse
With the pending redevelopment of the Ocean Grove SLSC club house the Committee of Management would like to remind non-financial members of the Ocean Grove SLSC that any craft they have stored at the club will be removed. These craft may be sold by the club to recover some of the cost of storage, used by other club members or disposed of as scrap. If you have boards or skis stored at the club and are NOT a financial member, please remove them from the clubhouse by the end of July 2017.
Financial members are also requested to take home any stored craft if they do not intend to renew their club membership, or if the craft are not currently being used.
If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Nick Bohan 0417 034 877.
