There is no nippers this week at Eimeo due to North Aussies at Mackay.
We are excited to share the date of the
Eimeo Tri Series Event. It will be an amazing morning shared with members from Sarina and Mackay SLSC’s. Our Tri Series Events run like a carnival and are suited to all ages and skill levels.
We look forward to seeing you all at this event, it is considered our normal Nippers Sunday morning.

We also have our Halloween Party this coming Monday night. All welcome

It's North Aussies this weekend for our U11 and up competitors! We wish you all the best of luck and hope the predicted wind doesn't come through with the force that they are expecting.
North Aussies is a great carnival for our younger members to come down and check out. You get to experience a major carnival just down the road!
We have training this Wednesday afternoon at Eimeo for Beach and Water and will pack the trailer afterwards.
We are grateful to Sarina for the invitation for some of our kids to participate in the Ky Hurst training.
Any questions - Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org

We have a Bronze Course that we are trying to kick off this coming weekend (it is taking a lot of time with the new system to sort out roadblocks to registrations).

Members are getting this course for free, which normally costs around $250-350 pp. (Funding is only available for 2023.2024)
Standard Mental Health First Aid training is designed for adults to support other adults. Course participants learn how to provide initial support to another adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical evidence-based action plan.
It will provide members the warning signs of mental health problems in other adults, provide skills to talk about mental health, how to respond in crisis and reduce the stigma around mental health.
Topics covered include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, and behaviours. You will learn how and where to get help when a person is developing a mental illness, what help research has shown to be effective and how to provide first aid in crisis situations.If you have any questions or issues, please reach out to either myself or Maddi – firstname.lastname@example.org.
eLearning has your Bronze or Surf Rescue Certificate Proficiency open and ready to be completed. Go to your Members Portal and access. This needs to be completed prior to the Skills Component.

MARINE STRINGER AWARD
There is a course now set up on the new SLSQ Hub for the Marine Stinger Award. If you have not done so, please enrol in this course and start completing the material.
We have Patrol Group 1 and 6 on this weekend coming. Please ensure you communicate with your Patrol Captain if you are unable to attend and find a swap.
Patrollers are asked to keep the First Aid room clean and tidy. There is to be no gear left on the bed and bags if left in the room need to be put under the bench. There is a cleaning list laminated on the back of the door. From this week we will be getting each patrol to come in as part of their tasks to make sure the room is as per the list.
A reminder that the Marine Stinger Risk Assessment Form needs to be completed. There is a new bound book of sheets in the patrol room.
