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 made a decision to sell craft that had been stored at the club by non-financial members of the Ocean Grove SLSC. At least two emails were sent to all archived members requesting their removal, starting three months prior to the sale. On 18 November, these craft were either sold by the club to recover some of the cost of storage or disposed of as scrap.

Financial members are also requested to take home any stored craft if they are not currently being used.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Nick Bohan 0417 034 877.

Building Project Update

The new clubroom plans are still with the City of Greater Geelong, awaiting planning approval. Go to the Members section of this website for a look at the plans, along with a letter from President David Pavia.

The latest estimate is for demolition in early February 2018.
