Surfings good for the SOUL Ocean Grove Voice

After a week of fickle weather surfers were blessed with sun and surf for the last Southern Ocean Union of Longboarding (SOUL) comp of 2017.
The final competition for the year was held at Boings beach break along 13th Beach Road. The Boings beach break has long been one of SOULs favourite locations when the conditions are favourable for longboard surfing.
As the sun rose the car park was quickly occupied and the smell of bacon and eggs filled the air. A bit of slip, slop, slap and the comp was underway with the promise of a cracker of a day. The mornings incoming tide set participants up with semi-clean one to three foot waves. A little bit of easterly swell produced left and right peaks offering something for everyone to surf their best.
Once again the frothing groms put on a magnificent display. With mums and dads in the water with the micro groms, a bit of a push they were up and riding catching tons of waves.
The SOUL club is a great family club that encourages and welcomes individuals and families at any level of longboard surfing. Whether you are new to the area or have been here a while why not get down to the next comp and see what its all about.
Dates for 2018 season will be posted in due course.
Inquiries to Paul Fletcher (president) on 0477 477 841 or Helen Jacob (secretary) on 0425 778 245.

Our top firies Ocean Grove Voice

Barwon Heads Fire Brigade held its annual awards dinner with three of the four award recipients being female operational members.
The awards were presented to:
* Firefighter of the Year Eliza Carlon.
* Encouragement Award Colin Bridges.
* Captains Award Libby Burnett, community safety co-ordinator.
* Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL Sub-Branch Annual Award Helen Wood, captain.
Barwon Heads Fire Brigade captain Helen Wood said the annual dinner and awards night was a chance to recognise the effort made by members to help keep their beloved community safe.
Our members dont seek the limelight nor do they believe in the individual, as the true testament is how well we work as a team. However, we have had the tradition of annual brigade awards in place for many years as a way to thank members who go above and beyond, she said.
It is particularly thrilling to see the female members of the brigade recognised for their contribution, proving that diversity is integral to the success and longevity of our brigade and the CFA as a whole.
