President's Update - November 17

Dear Members

As we fast approach the silly season, some updates with respect to all things Bronte.

  • Next weekend sees the biggest day at the Club, with us hosting the Macquarie Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim. On the back of the incredible numbers last year, we look forward to another huge day.

    Can I ask anyone who has not put their hand up to volunteer to please give some time on the weekend. It is not just people helping in the water that are important. It is also all the little jobs on the land and every little bit of help is of great assistance. Every small task helps, even for just an hour. Please click on to the following link to give whatever help you can;

    The Junior Ocean Swim will this year be at Bronte and it is a great opportunity for our young nippers to enjoy an ocean swim on such a big day.

  • Congratulations to our SRC group who successfully passed their examinations last Sunday. A huge 34 graduates and thank you for everyone who assisted them getting through. Our Bronze group have completed Part A this week, with Part B starting this Saturday, good luck to all of them.

  • On the building front, with a newly elected Council, we are re-engaging with their new direction and we have had a number of meetings over the last couple weeks and have more planned before Christmas. The Bronte Plan of Management is being re-visited which will have some impact of the timing of when we can lodge a DA. Very importantly we are working closely with Council to an integrated approach to changes to our building and the interrelated Council facilities that will be upgraded.

  • The Club will be holding on Friday, 8 December the Bronte Christmas Party from 7.00pm. It is for the adults and free entry for all. There will be live music and it is a great way to catch up with friends prior to Christmas and people going away on holidays.

As we head into Christmas, for those of you who like an afternoon social drink at our Club, the Sunday Sips are a great way of finishing the weekend. We have had great crowds turn up and it is a great way to enjoy summer at out Club.
