Hello amazing Team Tama People,
This special edition is a summary of the end of season Tama Glama 2021 Awards night. It started back in March when I was asked to chair the Awards committee, which felt such an honour, I had to say yes!
So here we go, we created a few new Whatsapp groups (!) and started planning a night that we hoped would be a success. First thing first, when are we celebrating? Well, with the club rebuild starting on 4 May we only had a few options, so the end of season weekend it is, Saturday 24 April!
Now it’s time to get the survey out and ask you to nominate club members, across 9 awards, for their contribution throughout the season. You certainly responded: 132 nominations were submitted in just 10 days, thank you!
The Awards committee (Marc Larmour P4, Lance Brooks, P5, Jemima Waddell P8 and I, Lisa Bodrero P4) met after patrol on 10th April to review nominations.
Having awardees is one thing, but we also needed a crowd to cheer and celebrate with them. How many people can we have?, what's the Covid limit, how many functioning tables and chairs do we have… 66 people and a few “staff” working on the night, bringing us to 70, no more, no less!
Harriet, our fabulous MC for the night, sets-up tickets on Humanitix and you start buying them light hot cakes. Sold out 5 days before the event. We would have loved to host all of you but such is life post 2020.
On the day, David Murphy and his Keen Beans sous chefs: Audrey, Sammy, Paul prepared the most delicious food!
Harriet, Michelle, Ben, Guy, Arnaud and Lisa glammed up the hall for its final hoorah. Marlin compiled some of our best shots of the season for a background slideshow.
There was a red carpet, fairy lights, candle lit red and yellow table centres, the iconic cabana bar was stocked and the room was filled by happy members dressed with a touch a Glamarama and sparklesRead more
Tamarama Surf Lifesaving Club is excited to be hosting the inaugural “Celebration of Women in Surf Day”, taking place on Tamarama Beach, on Sunday 13th March 2022, as part of celebrations for International Women’s Day (IWD). The theme for this year's IWD is #Break the Bias.
For us, the reason to get together is to celebrate women's involvement in Surf Life Saving Australia and highlight female participation at the Tamarama club. This closely aligns with one of the key priorities of our club's strategy which is to increase the number of active female members. We would like to showcase Tamarama SLSC as the inclusive, diverse, welcoming club that we are, and encourage and enable more women to join our club.
Here at Tama we have a passionate comms team keeping our members up to date with all things related to patrolling, training, club updates etc... As well as a few profiling series of our members. As you're browsing around we'd love to share a bit more with you about the amazing people that make Tama a great community within SLS. Whilst we continue to update this page you can subscribe to the newsletter to get to know our members from your inbox.
Check out our profiling series of the Women of Tama. She can, she will, she does. She's a lifesaver!
