Vale Allan Scott
With great sadness, The Surfer writes of the passing of Bondi SBLSC Life Member, Allan Scott.
Allan has been a constant and valued member of our Club since 1960, holding numerous board, committee and officer positions. Allan will be remembered not only for his dedication and contribution to the Club, but also for his entertaining and often passionate blogs on all things Bondi. His regular ‘Unreliable Histories’ features brought the Club’s rich history to Surfer readers for many years.
The funeral will be held today:
Friday 29 June, at 1.00pm
There will follow:
A celebration of Allan’s life, from 2.00pm
Allan’s wife Jane, his brother Bob, and Allan’s children knew how important the Club was to him and they knew how much he was loved by many members of our Club. Many of us will remember his dry sense of humour, incredible memory and love of the ocean, especially his wise advice to all in the surf – "Take the big ones, they aren’t dumping"
Our deepest condolences.

This Season, fees allow for reduced gym fees for active members. To alleviate some of the burden of a slight SLSA membership increase, the Club will subsidise part of the cost, if you renew membership on or before 15 July 2018.
