    Change of Date for next Beach Clean

    Hi All

    We need to change the date of the next 3207 Beachpatrol clean to the
    14th December.   We had a clash with the 3184 Beachpatrol start up launch on
    the 7th which some of us are going to help kick off.

     So our 3207BP clean will be on 14 December at 9 am, meeting at Lagoon Pier.

    BeachPatrol 3207 Next Beach Clean 14 December 2013

    Change of Date
    Beach Patrol 3207
    Next Beach Clean
    Saturday 14 December 9 am
    Meet at Lagoon Pier

    Hi All

    Our last Beach clean for the year is upon us.  We can only hope it is warmer than the last one which was nigh mid winter conditions.  But Beach patrollers are hardy souls it seems as a number showed up to do their bit.

    This time we'll meet at the Lagoon Pier to clean towards the Port Melb Life Saving Club & onto the South Melbourne Life Saving Club.  If you see this guy, during your clean he might bring you extra treats on Christmas morning for your efforts.

    Sat 14th Dec at 9 am at Lagoon Pier

    Since some of you may be away over the Christmas period and not checking email, the Jan beach clean will be on Sat 11 Jan at 9 am along Sandridge beach.  Meet at the Life Saving Club there.

    Merry Christmas
    Happy Beaches
