Coolum Surf Life Saving Club nippers held their activities last Sunday morning on Noosa Beach and the conditions in the surf were perfect.

All nippers were anxious to get into the water with many swimming out around the cans two and three times.

There was plenty of board rescue training and those on boards paddled out to the shark nets. The nippers had a ball.

There are no dull moments with nippers. The Sunday before last at Coolum, a whale put on a show near the surf club, and last Sunday, Noosa had heaps of fish jumping out of the water.

Many thanks to all the water safety people who volunteered for the morning.

The Met Caloundra teams carnival for under-11 to under-14 nippers will be held this Saturday (November 1).

All nippers nominated are expected to be at Caloundra no later than 8am. All parents remember that this is a teams’ carnival and if one member of the team should not turn up, in most cases the team cannot compete. Contact your age manager or Paul Hampson immediately if this happens.

There will be no board activities on Maroochy River this Saturday. There will be nipper activities as usual for all age groups on Coolum Beach this Sunday.

For further enquires, phone Paul Hampson on 0428 181 766.
