Big pay day for a small surf club

THE membership may be small but Bellinger Valley-North Beach Surf Life Saving Club had a big pay day at the NSW State Championships at Kingscliff on the weekend.

Junior competitor Max Shaw won silver in the under-9 beach sprint in an amazing race against 190 other entrants, much to the delight of proud mum Kim.

“This brings Max’s state medal tally to two as he won his first silver medal last year in the under-8 flags event,” she revealed.

“We could not be prouder of Max and what he has achieved.”

The four Mitchell boys – Fred, Jedd, Jonah and Joe – also made it through to a variety of semis and finals.

Club officials have passed on congratulations to all the competitors for their great results.

“The boys display great sportsmanship and commitment to everything they do and their club is truly proud of their achievements,” Kim Shaw said.

The club staged their final club championships on the weekend which was a great way to end the season. Presentation for the juniors will be held on Saturday, April 9, from 3pm at the surf club.

The community is invited to come down and join in the fun and congratulate our future lifesavers for a great season.
