Club Cleanliness
It is the responsibility of all members to keep the clubhouse clean and tidy. Please clean up after yourselves to ensure that the next users do not arrive to a mess. This includes the upstairs hall and making sure that the gear downstairs is put away.

Stormwater Management
Wellington Water are proposing an approach for reducing pollution of local harbours, rivers and streams from the council stormwater and wastewater networks. Our members are invited to have a say on the draft Stormwater Management Strategy by the end of February 2023. You can read more about it here on the Wellington Water website and fill out the survey.

Female Health Seminar
It was great to see a range of genders, ages and involvement in the club attend the recent seminar we hosted. Thank you Tessa for sharing your knowledge of female health and how this can have impact on training abilities.
Passing of Ian McCaw
Family and friends of the late Ian (Squeak) McCaw watched as Paul's U23 Men took Squeak for his 'last ride' in the surf boat on a beautiful evening in Titahi Bay. Squeak was a member of Titahi Bay SLSC before he and Ann relocated to Tauranga. RIP Squeak.

National Lifeguard School
Eli Jones, Ethan Jones and Mac Van Den Heuvel attended the 2022 SLSNZ National Lifeguard School at Waihi Beach. The surf was large and conditions challenging, but by all accounts the candidates enjoyed themselves immensely and learnt a lot of new skills to bring back to Titahi Bay. Photos are available on the SLSNZ Facebook page.
