Last Weekend at Bondi Surf Clu

Last Weekend at Bondi Surf Club

It started with a giant inflatable mango out the front of the Clubhouse and ended with mangos on the barbecue, dinner and drinks with friends in the sunshine on the back deck!

Saturday was the @Calypso Mangoes activation. The kitted-out Kombi & Co. van, individual cups of fresh mango and Gelatissimo mango gelato were a real hit with everyone.

There were enough mangoes left to go on the barbecue on Sunday night along with freshly-made salads prepared by the The Blue Room Bondi and meat for the barbecue thanks to Harris Farm Markets.

Join us again next Sunday at Bottles for some sunshine, fresh air, good food and drinks and good company to see out the weekend in Bondi. The Blue Room is open from 5pm for members and their guests.

Thanks to Brett Pattinson, Michael Hallam and Will Mitchell for making it all happen last weekend.

There is another EPIC weekend

There is another EPIC weekend of racing coming up this weekend on the Beach. Our neighbours at North Bondi SLSC are hosting the first rounds of the Nutri-Grain IronMan and IronWoman Series.

Come down the beach and check out all the action. The best of the best will be here competing! In the video they tell us what they love about Ironman racing.

If you are inspired and want to become an Ironman – become a lifesaver at Bondi Surf Club and start training. Our next Bronze course starts in Feb!

Last week we lowered the club

Last week we lowered the club flag to make the passing of Ian Tiley on 29 December 2021 following a battle with cancer that has extended over many years. “Tiles, as he was affectionately known, was 81 years old and he is now at peace.

The funeral service to celebrate his life will be held at 2.00pm on Thursday 13 January 2022 at the Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, Botany. After the service, drinks to honour “Tiles” will be taken at the Eastern Suburbs Rugby Club, at Woollahra Oval. Ian was an Honorary Life Member of the Easts Rugby Club.

A story from Tiles past for members:
In the 1970s the Bondi Lifesavers’ Rugby Club toured the USA. They played 5 matches, 1 in Hawaii and 4 in California. To subsidise the trip, the Club carried out some fundraising, including a wine bottling, producing Bondi Lifesavers’ labelled Sauvignon and Cab. Sav. A production line was set up in the backyard of a house at Bondi, the residence of Ian Tiley and Keith Duley.
The bulk wine was supplied by the Jazzman, who at the time was running a Hunter Valley vineyard. A large crew of volunteers toiled all day in the hot sun, bottling the wine then labeling, corking and finally packing the wine in cartons. Plenty of free wine was drunk, to the point that we ran out of bulk wine and started to uncork and drink the wine that had just been bottled. Time to go. The Jazzman stood on a box and gave a little talk on the wine and the need to put it downto mature. As he stood down from the box he muttered to those closest, “I’d drink it as soon as I could if I were you.” For decades later, Bondi Lifesavers’ wine was brought out at dinner parties when all the other grog had run out!

It’s hard to believe it was on

It’s hard to believe it was only 2 years ago this week that the townships of the South Coast were in such dramatic need for help with the Bushfires.

Combined with 2 years of pandemic, the message at that time relayed through Mathew Hatcher (now the Mayor of the Eurobodalla council) is just as relevant today – these communities need your tourism dollars and spending power to help them get back on their feet.

Visit the south coast and drop in to one of the many great surf clubs there – they would love your support
