Noosa Heads Surf Club shines at big events in 2012

AS club captain I automatically consider our club to be the greatest in Australia and I am proud of what we have achieved.

Winning the Queensland Club of the Year for 2012 was a major achievement however the competition in Sydney for Australian Club of the Year was an even higher standard and the Ballina Lighthouse SLSC was a deserved winner.

This Club in Northern New South Wales has been through extreme hardship over recent years with the loss of the clubhouse to fire, yet they have maintained first-rate service to the community. Our congratulations go to this club.

Although narrowly beaten, the judges highly commended our achievements in our 84th consecutive year of saving lives on Noosa Beach.

In that time the club has played an increasing role in the local community and emerged as a competitive powerhouse in the lifesaving movement.

A highlight is that more than 6000 school children were involved in our Community Education program through our surf safety programs last year.

Great results

There have been great performances by Noosa members at the Coolangatta Gold and Qld Endurance Champs. Noosa finished third in the Qld Endurance Championship in terrible conditions with great individual performances from Nick Kirby placing second in the open ski and Gracie Keelan in the Under 11 1km swim.

This year's Coolangatta Gold attracted a big Noosa contingent.

In the individuals Jordie Mercer finished seventh in the open women's with other great performances from Robbie Hayes, Jett Kenny and Lachie Lansdown in a very hot U19 field and impressive masters performances from both Simon Gilder and Gerard O'Brien.

The teams competition results were even more impressive with:

First in the Under 19 female: Alex Nolan, Ashlea DeCent, Eilish Fahey and Cecilia Luhrs.

Second in the open men: Jamo Porter, Sean Hayes, Jake Bartholomaeus and Andrew Widdicombe.

Third in the open mixed: Tim Mandeville, Jake McKenzie, Steve Mawby and Corinna Lieber

Seventh in the open men: Paul Peterson, Greame Orr, Mason Powell and Paul Green.
