Hi to all Parents and Nippers firstly thank you to all the parents that came down and assisted with the carnival and especially Pete Mays for coordinating everything. It was a great day and there was some fierce competition. Congratulations to Xavier Gillespie (3rd 1km run) and Liam Worne (3rd flags), also to our amazing march past team (3rd, ok will admit only three teams) however they did the club proud for a bunch of kids that were thrown together five minutes before the start.
This Week:
• The BBQ and Kiosk will be offering coffee, Bacon and Egg Rolls from 8:30 am.
• Weekly BBQ – THIS WEEK IT’S THE UNDER 7’S COULD SOME PARENTS PLEASE HELP OUT FOR 20 MINUTES EACH TO COVER THE SETUP/COOKING/CLEAN UP. If all the parents share it between them, you will not miss much. As most of you are aware, each week we run a BBQ over the morning during the Nippers Season. This is a great fundraiser for the club and very popular with the families to enjoy after a morning at Nippers. Each week we would like volunteers to assist Claire. This year we will doing it by age group. Just need a 20-minute shift from a couple of parents and everyone is fed, and you still get to watch nippers. The next age group will be under 8’s next week (28th January 2018).
• Nippers kicks off at 9:30 am SHARP, please be lined up at 9.15am.
• Please make sure all children have a drink bottle and sun screen on before starting.

Bronze Squad
If you want to become involved, which we encourage, then please contact our education director to join the next bronze group (education@narrabeach.org.au). It is hoped we can start a course late January please have a chat if you want to join or have a go. Remember once you have it then you can swim to the cans as well with the kids, it’s a great experience. There is a number of nipper parents already registered for this please become involved.
Uniform Exchange
There is a box near the BBQ each week to look in. Please put whatever it is for sale in a clip lock bag with your name, telephone number, what it is, size and price. Anyone wanting to buy just put the money in the clip lock bag and text the person it’s there (honesty system).
Labelling / Lost Property
Mums and Dads: Please make sure that all Nippers clothing is clearly labelled using permanent marker with your child’s name especially the Nippers Cap and Hi Vis top. The lost property is near the board storage area. I cleaned this up over the break and now have over 20 drink bottles, cossies and Hi Vis Tops (starting a shop soon) please have a look if any are yours on Sunday.
Have a look at our Facebook page where we will post updates and pics of events.
