The positions marked with '*' require you to be a proficient lifesaver or currently undergoing your Bronze Medallion. We welcome all lifesavers from any club in Australia. If you can help out with any of the other areas, we'd love to have you along for the ride.
  • Lifesavers who will learn a choreographed routine * (rehearsals start 7.30pm, Thursday 7th February at North Bondi Surf Club)
  • Lifesavers who will march and be support crew (give out water, carry towels, wave to the crowd, media helpers etc)*
  • Drivers, do you have a truck license?
  • Builder with scaffolding experience (to help set up the trucks on parade day)

Good on you, guys & girls. Just surfed on in via the SMH article after a long day on patrol. Glad to hear you are all being treated just like you should be, all the best.
