The Rock-itt : January 2012
Last month saw the Junior Life saving carnival held at Queenscliff Beach in Sydney with 1200 nippers turning up to test their skills against one another. The weather was a little ‘iffy’ to start, holding proceedings up for almost an hour and threatening to put a damper on the day’s events. Although some of the events had to be cancelled the carnival continued with competitors hot to go after the waiting period. Conditions had deteriorated by mid morning and it was decided to halt the competition. But once conditions improved, the competition resumed once more allowing the carnival to continue. A spokesperson for Queenscliff (the host club) said that the safety and well being is always deemed paramount and no risk would be taken if weather conditions are not suitable. The competition itself was fierce with our local northern beaches representatives performing well and this event should have our local representatives primed and ready to go later on this month when the interbranch cham pionships kick in. Out of the 17 northern beaches clubs competing, Manly accrued most points with Queenscliff coming in second place, hot on Manly’s heels. Other clubs from outside the area also took part in the carnival. Report by Pete Johnson Photos by Dave Goodwin
