Call for rowers to sign-on with Woopi
By GREG WHITE
WOOLGOOLGA Surf Life Saving boat crews will need to pull out something special if they are to match the success of the 2005-06 surf competition season.
"We won or were placed in a lot of events," veteran crewman Trevor Clark said, "but there's always a turnover in members and we need more participants to back up the regulars.
"Training has started already and the first events are coming up quickly. We need anyone interested in rowing or coming back to rowing, and somebody who'd like to try their hand as a sweep would be handy."
Highlight of the past year was the silver medal picked up in the Australian Masters Championships, with Clark a member of the crew.
"Gee, the celebrations went on a long time after that one," he said.
"But that's the great thing about it.
"Once the hard work is done you have plenty of time to celebrate.
"And, we do like to party."
The Woolgoolga club is providing opportunities for both females and males (15 years and over) at three weekly training sessions on town beach - Sundays at 8am or Tuesday/Thursday at 5pm.
"There's plenty of travel planned with Australian titles in Perth, North Coast premiership finals in Yamba, Country events in Port Macquarie and State titles at Cronulla," Clark said.
"Anybody is welcome to give it a try."
