Hey People. 

Welcome to the 2022/2023 season here at The Bay. 

We are looking forward to a full season that won't be interrupted by the joy's of Covid as a few seasons have been. It is awesome to see that each area of the club have started their mahi in preparing for what the season will bring. Keep it up as summer is nearly upon us.

The committee this year are committed to continuing keeping TBSLSC the club that you are proud to be part of. The committee this year is made up by: 

President Paul McVicar
Chairperson Kaye Ryan
Club Captain Carl Jones
Secretary Deborah Donkin
Treasurer Brett Hamer
Lifesaving Coordinator Georgia McLaren
Craft Coordinator Nic Rhodes-Grennell
Boat Captain Tim Marsden
Junior Surf Coordinator Scott Hemsley

If you need questions answered please talk to the committee member in each area. If you don't know who to ask please talk to me and I will direct you. Further to this, if you have any concerns throughout the season I am here to help ensure our members have a positive experience. Feel free to make contact with me. 

Finally (and most importantly), a big thanks to all of all of you that are doing a ton of work behind the scenes preparing for the season ahead. Training our new guards, sorting memberships, coaching, organising upskilling, organising teams, sourcing & maintaining gear and all the other things going on.

For now Cheers,
