NEW PATROL NAMED - "BALDOCK"

We are pleased to announce that the previously unnamed new patrol has now been officially named
Baldock, in recognition of the exceptional service Cyril has given and continues to give to the Club.

 Patrolling members also please note that a few changes have been made to patrol dates during the season to
accommodate specific patrol needs. The affected patrols are Fullwood, Baldock, Jeppesen, Ormsby, Walsh
and Douglas.

 Fullwood's old date of 31 October has swapped with Baldock's old date of 8 November. Jeppesen's old date
of 19 December has swapped with Ormsby's 20 December patrol. Jeppesen's 16 January patrol has swapped
with Walsh's 23 January date. Jeppesen's 27 February has swapped with Douglas's 20 February and
Jeppesen's 20 March has swapped with Douglas on 13 March.

 Changes are highlighted in the patrol rosters that are now on the website. You can also view the new rosters
at THIS LINK.

Any questions or requests for changes to James Hutton at lifesaving@bondisurfclub.com

Cantoo - Raising money for Cancer research.



We are working with Cantoo again this year, we need volunteers to provide water safety on Saturday
mornings starting from the beginning of Nov. We had 10 Bondi members last year that provided water
safety regularly for close to 100 swimmers each week, they found it rewarding and all enjoyed watching
swimmers that may have not been able to swim in the surf to being able to complete a 2km ocean swim.

If you are interested, please contact Jacob on deputypresident@bondisurfclub.com

You can also choose to take part in the Cantoo ocean swims, see http://www.cantoo.org.au/ for more details.

Good News

Congratulations to Gerard Cafe, one of our new members and a true "Lifesaver" who became the hero of the
day, here's his version of a successful resuscitation;



Yesterday I revived an old man whose heart had stopped after he collapsed from a dizzy spell.

  It only took one set of compressions and two lots of breathing to bring him round.

  Being right there as it happened was probably why he responded so quickly, since I started within about
15 seconds after his breathing had stopped. There would have been no brain damage through lack of
oxygen.

   It's made me feel so wonderful that I could do such a thing, and you've played a part in it.

  Hope you share the feeling too.

Gerard Cafe



See you all on the beach!
