With ANZAC day coming up we were very glad to get our war memorials back from the conservators on Thursday. Watch the video attached as they explain some of the work that took place to protect them. https://youtu.be/9AIQlo2oSRI

We are grateful to Scott Laney (ex-president and life member) and Tanya Jackson for gaining this grant and supervising the restoration. Our application was strongly supported by the North Bondi RSL, Gabrielle Upton MP and Dave Sharma MP, and we greatly appreciate the NSW Department of Veterans Affairs program that enables this project to go ahead.

Blue and White Masters Win On

Blue and White Masters Win

On Tuesday night (5 April) at Aussies, Dori Miller became the latest inductee into SLSA’s Masters Legends Hall of Fame. The Masters Legends category was established in 2019 and inductees are chosen by SLSA alone, without any process for nominations. There were only two inductees this year: Dori and Michael Geldz from Queenscliff SLSC.

The Masters Legends Hall of Fame is a very select group. There were only 10 members inducted in the inaugural 2019 group and there are only two other women in their number.

The award recognises Dori’s outstanding contribution and achievements in Masters competition and comes as Bondi’s Masters Team competes for their fifth consecutive Aussies championship.

The team went into the Thursday morning’s competition in a tight race with host club Kurrawa and only the surfing competition to go.

Amanda Cooper, Louise Santos, Julie Pritchard, Harries and Will Mitchell had everyone on the edge of their seats as they surfed through the afternoon and sealed the championship for Bondi. We’re sure they’ll enjoy their well-earned celebrations tonight!
