Background: The concept of Roll Call goes back to tradition days in Lifesaving where Members were called upon for different duties or social gatherings as an expectation of attendance. The roll was called to note attendance and sometimes there was a punishment for non attendance. Very similar to the concept of being in a beach patrol and fulfilling your obligation.
Of course, things have changed and nowadays and it’s a way for our membership to have something to feel apart of and attend no matter what part of the club you are interested in. Whether it be a Nipper, Patrolling Member, Surf Sport Competitor or “Friend of The Club”.
With the loss of our Clubrooms last season we called the Roll in various venues to support our sponsors and supporters as well as to provide a venue for Members to gather and bond.
This season we continue with the concept, but at The Club. Throughout the season we will change the events for Roll Call and include some lifesaving twists for everyone to enjoy. We can’t wait to see ALL members supporting this concept and support each other in our diverse Club environment.
Yours in lifesaving,
Brad Watson (Club Captain) and Tara Irvin (Vice Captain)
