Minnie Water- Wooli Nippers

ANOTHER great day was had by all at Minnie Water Beach on Sunday, enjoying another glorious day in paradise.

The sun was shining, the water warm, the waves and wind gentle. All made for another perfect day on the beach.

This week saw a number of our younger kids make it all the way out and around the buoys for the first time. Well done guys and girls, great swimming and paddling, keep up the good work.

Our McDonald's award winners for this week included Grace Middleton, Darcy Osborne, Theo Cooper, Holly Cooper. Well done to all those kids, it is great to see everyone learning and enjoying the day.

Our branch-sponsored Newcastle Permanent Nipper of the Week award went to Luke Arnott, who received a hat and a new $50 bank account for his trouble.

Luke is always giving 100 per cent at nippers and it is great to see how much confidence he has gained throughout this season. He just loves catching waves on the boards and has become a great little board paddler. Well done Luke, keep up the good work.

We are coming up to the business end of this summer surf season and we have a very busy time over the next three weeks.

Next Sunday we have our North Coast Branch Titles at Nambucca Heads. Then the next weekend, on Sunday, March 15, we will be holding our club championships at Minnie Water beach.

Then on the following weekend, on Sunday, March 22, we round out the season with our club presentation and AGM day. Parents are reminded to bring a plate of food on presentation day so that the kids can enjoy a small party at the end of proceedings to celebrate the end of a great season.

Till then, stay safe on the beach.
