Narooma Surf Club has celebrated another successful season at two end-of-season presentation afternoons over the past two weeks.
The Nippers held their presentation at Narooma Golf Club on Saturday, May 5, and it was well attended by families and Nippers alike.
Everyone who contributed to the program can be proud, as the program won all three junior carnivals and retained the championship title for the Far South Coast branch.
Congratulations to this season’s Nipper of the Year Halle Constable, who received the Inaugural Bob Bennett trophy presented on his behalf by sister, Patricia Melville.
Halle has been a great role model and successful competitor, representing the club at branch, inter-branch, and state-wide level, and has a great attitude to training.
The senior presentation was held on Saturday, May 12 at Club Narooma, despite the rain stopping the barefoot bowls section of the day.
Two new life members were inducted, and many individuals and members were recognised for fantastic seasons.
Brendan Constable was inducted as a Life member by his mother Cheryl Constable, herself a life member.
Roger Adams, who has been a member and patrol captain at the Club for 26 years plus, was inducted by Life Member Chris Young.
President Ben Bate thanked everyone for the season and extended his special thanks to the Club’s committee and executives.
He said he is looking forward to next season with a new rescue boat shed in place.
President Ben also acknowledged local boater Don Stokes, who has commissioned a perpetual award for outstanding bravery.
