SCRUTINEERING ON CRAFT FOR STATE TITLES
All new craft to be used at Senior State Championships will need to be fully scrutineered and added to the database.
Random checking will take place at any time throughout the Championships. Any board or ski that still has the State or Aussie’s sticker (or has been scrutineered and therefore is on our database) will only be checked for ‘safety’ prior to events, during marshalling or on the line at State Championships.
Office of Recreation and Sport Vouchers will be accepted towards SPSLSC Junior Membership Fees for next year. Please email any queries to Brad Vogt or any member of the Junior Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org

6th EDITION - 2014/15 SEASON
Congratulations to crews who made the trip to Robe last weekend. Our Ladies crews did extremely well with Shooters currently top of the standings and Sprockets third. A composite Men's crew rowed and had fun! Thanks again to our officials from South Port for making it all happen.
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED - it’s South Port's carnival on Saturday so we need our crews to be there to help set up and pack up. The other clubs will pitch in AS USUAL, so let’s have some direction from sweeps of crews and get their respective crews there to help from 7.30am. We have been VERY slack in the area of set up and clean ups so don't just leave it to other clubs as generally the old buggers are the ones to do all the work!
100 Club - you are urged to reserve your ticket in the club's major fundraiser as there are only around 20 tickets left. Tickets are only $50 and you can win $1 000 at the the final draw. Not many boaties have tickets, so see Wal or Olly to get a number.
Boat Rower-organised Xmas Kris Kringle - is on again from 3pm on Sunday 21 December. Bring along a present valued at $10 and NO recycled ones from last year!! Bring a platter too to share and get into the Xmas spirit.
All rowers/sweeps who plan to compete in any of the Navy Series and interstate events MUST be a member of ASRL, and fees need to be paid before the first event which is Robe at the end of November. U19's are exempt.

All fees and registrations are to be done on-line via the ASRL website: www.asrl.com.au

SOUTH PORT AUSTRALIA’S CLEANEST BEACH
SOUTH PORT NOARLUNGA BEACH WINS NATIONAL AWARD
South Port Noarlunga beach in South Australia has today won top honours in the Keep Australia Beautiful Clean Beaches Awards for 2009-10.
Minister for Climate Change, Energy Efficiency and Water, Senator Penny Wong, today presented the award to South Port Noarlunga at a ceremony at Sydney’s Manly beach.
The Awards recognise local community and individual efforts that are helping coastal areas to become environmentally, economically and socially sustainable communities.
South Port Noarlunga won awards for its efforts in Resource Recovery & Waste Management, Environmental Innovation & Protection, Water Conservation and Young Legends. These four awards led to the South Port Noarlunga beach being awarded the overall title.
“South Port Noarlunga beach community members have demonstrated exceptional dedication and commitment in taking steps to improve their local environment,’’ Senator Wong said.
Kingston MP Amanda Rishworth congratulated the South Port Noarlunga Beach community.
“We have one of the nation’s most beautiful coastlines here, just south of Adelaide,’’ she said.
“South Port is a pristine beach and, thanks to the hard work of the local community, it remains a must see tourist destination for the many local, interstate and overseas beachgoers that frequently enjoy our spectacular coastline.”
Senator Wong said community initiatives to protect Australia’s coastline and beaches were an important part of managing the risks of climate change.
“By working together to protect our beautiful coastline we can help ensure Australia’s beaches remain sustainable for future generations,’’ Senator Wong said.
“The risks to Australia’s coastlines are real and well known, and it is initiatives like Keep Australia Beautiful that will help ensure we are well placed to respond to the impacts of climate change.’’
