We are so thrilled to announce that we now have an amazing 27 new "Bronzies" and Club members joining our ranks! This is an extraordinary number of new members to complete the course in one intake, particularly considering the rough seas that they have been training in. The rest of the Club are really keen to have these fit, skilled lifesavers join our Club.
We want to thank all of the trainers that supported this season's Bronze Medallion Course which was particularly challenging without a Clubhouse and in the tough conditions. A big shout out to our extraordinary Chief Training Officer, Michelle Cowans and her trusty offsider - Assistant Chief Training Officer, Arnaud de la Chaise. Thanks to the other trainers: Taga Stacey, Jimmy Burnett, Hugh French, David Murphy and particularly Troy Longworth who has returned to the Club after recovering from a long illness. Great work to the probationary trainers Sid Russell and Oliver Hunt who were great support as well. Thanks also to all of those that helped with water safety, particularly (Uncle) Derek Bagatourian who was there every week of the course supporting his daughter, Lucy who successfully completed the course.
Of these 27 new Bronzies, one third are going straight into IRB Crew training this Saturday which shows how keen this group are.
Welcome to Tamarama Surf Lifesaving Club Bronzies! We hope you enjoy your first season at our great Club.
