A young koala's beach adventure

Local lifesavers star again

Cr Ann Bunnell presents Jeremy with the Aslet Cup Island lifesaving sensation Jeremy McCowen of Nelly Bay was again in the limelight when he was presented with the George Aslet Cup for Arcadian Club Champion by Deputy Mayor Ann Bunnell, at the 76th Annual Arcadian Club Presentations held at Panorama House last Saturday night.

But the George Aslet Cup was just the start of it. Jeremy was also awarded: the Newton Trophy for being Arcadia's Most Valuable Male Competitor; the Brian Coomber Trophy as Belt Champion; the M.I. Car & Passenger Ferry Trophy as Craft Aggregate Champion; the Carmichael Ford Trophy as Beach Aggregate Champion and the Arcadian Memorial Shield for becoming Surf Aggregate Champion.

The only other Islander to feature in the event was 15 year old Michelle Combridge - a member of the first Arcadian R & R Team to get Gold at State Titles and follow it up with Gold at the National Titles. This was the first ever gold medal awarded to an Arcadian team at the National Titles.

It is worth noting that lifesavers have to contribute a minimum of 24 hours of voluntary beach patrols during the year to be entitled to compete in the various competitions. Interestingly, Michelle, has already contributed 68 hours this season!

Well done guys!
