SLSC hopes for fine weather

WOOLGOOLGA Surf Life Saving Club members have their fingers crossed the rain will hold off long enough to stage tomorrow’s golf day.

Entries are still being taken at Woolgoolga Diggers Golf Club at Safety Beach for the three-person ambrose event, with registrations at 9.30am.

Cost is $25 per person, including a steak or sausage sandwich.

Club spokesperson Trevor Clark said a big roll-up was needed so boat repairs could be undertaken.

“We copped a bit of damage to one of the surf boats at the Craft Carnival last weekend,” he said.

“The boats get a work-out with five or six crews at any one time using them so there isn’t much time to give them a break.

“And it’s inevitable they’ll get dinged.”

Clark is also undergoing ‘repairs’ to his badly broken ribs suffered at the carnival.

There were initial fears he’d been severely injured after a boat tipped over him in a big swell during Saturday’s heats session.

“It’s sore and I’m off work for a couple of days,” he revealed.

“However, with a bit of spare time available I can put it to good use getting ready for the golf day.

“Players are welcome to stay on after the presentation as we’ve got entertainment organised to keep them occupied.”
