WHAT’S HAPPENING AT MANLY LSC – FRIDAY 2ND DECEMBER 2022
Friday 2nd December 2022
Wow we are already in December, what a season it has been already. With another sunny weekend expected, the beach and its surrounds are sure to be busy, so if you can spare some time over the weekend to help out your fellow clubbies on patrol, please do so and keep our beach safe for another weekend!
On Patrol this weekend:
Saturday 3rd December
Patrol 15 led by Robin Barham and Tim Ettle
Patrol 1 led by Andrew Furniss
Sunday 4th December
Patrol 13 led by Peter Ingle and Victoria O’Halloran
Patrol 14 led by Claude Busse
Last weekend Manly LSC was visited by a group of young leaders and their supervisors from Torquay SLSC. They were here to experience patrol in Sydney. We hope that they enjoyed the experience and they have welcomed anyone from Manly to visit them and experience their patrol life at Torquay.

BOATS @ MANLY ANNOUNCEMENT COMING SOON
Did you know that the history of surf boats is intrinsically linked to the Manly LSC?
Lifesavers at Manly Beach were the first to adopt and adapted double ended ships boat as a rescue craft as early as 1895 – the very first surf boat.
In 1908, Manly LSC was the first club to host an official surf boat race.
1911 saw a Manly LSC member re-design these boats into the more familiar shape we see today.
The club also played host to generations of the Clymer family who were responsible for the modernising this most majestic of surf craft.
We are rebuilding a dedicated, passionate core of seasoned boaties who want to ensure this storied history continues.
Treat this as a teaser for anyone wishing to get newly involved with, or return to, the premier surf sport at the carnival.
In the mean time you can also join the facebook page called Manly Boaties.
KELLOGS NUTRI GRAIN SERIES AT MANLY

Thank you to those members, who have already volunteered to assist the event as officials, BBQ, IRB, and First Aid. To be able to hold events of this size takes an army to hold a successful event and we as a Club always come together to achieve this goal.
