Greetings to all – almost to the calendar end of winter!
In a quiet iso moment – let your mind drift forward to a Haven summer which is just around the corner…
There is obviously a degree of uncertainty around what this summer will look like in terms of our normal programs and events.
All clubs are in regular communication with LSV about all things related to club activities and COVID.
Given the current status in Victoria – it is too early for me to provide you with any firm news, however as the summer approaches, we undertake to communicate with our members in a regular and timely way – as soon as we know more.
62nd Annual General Meeting
FSLSC history was made on Sunday 16th August with our first ever online AGM! Over 50 people attended which was a great outcome. Whilst we obviously would have preferred to catch up in person, the format worked well!
Highlights included the awarding of Life Membership to Pam Freeman – a thoroughly deserved award.
Also, given our Easter Presentation Night was cancelled – the presentation of club awards also took place. A complete list of these can be found in the Annual Report – some of the major awards recognised were:
- 15 Years Patrol Service – Sean Lawler & Phil Thomas
- President’s Trophy for Club Service – Julia Clarke & Gareth Clarke
- Best Active Member – Fergus Orr
- Lifesaver of the Year – Issy Galloway
- Patrol of the Year – Patrol 2
- Most Patrol Hours – James Wright
- Best Performed Female Competitor – Mia Hamley
- Best Performed Male Competitor – Gabe Cornwell
- Outstanding Sports Achievement – Masters Womens Boat Crew
In addition, Committee and Office Bearers for the forthcoming season were elected. Thanks to those members who have put their hand up to take on extra responsibility and also thanks to members who have stepped down from Committee roles – in particular, Alan Martin and Michael Henderson.
