This is a great function to attend not only will you get to hear all the exciting activities planned for the coming season, but you could be one of the lucky winners of a priority entry to next May’s Busselton IM 70.3. At the same event last year 20 North Coasters walked away with the goods. The tension of having to sit in front of your computer on the opening day of race registrations is not much fun, so come along the odd are good with 50 priority entries given away on the night.
The WA Department of Sport and Recreation and Royal Life Saving have teamed up to offer all sport and recreation volunteers in WA a one day first aid training courses at the special price of $49.95 (save 50%). Everyone involved in community sport and recreation is encouraged to attend.
Courses are being held across the state and offer hands-on, practical training that is enjoyable and engaging. Best of all, everyone will learn first aid skills they can use for life.
Having had a near death experience first time round when I tried my hand at the 2011 Ironman 70.3 Yeppoon in Far Northern Queensland (FNQ), one would think that most (sane) people would have been deterred in going back to have another go. Apart from the nasty little stingers – definitely not good for people with allergies, and the very stormy waters resembling a scene from ‘DAS BOOT’, the rest as they say, is history and a decent two-beer story at that. Suffice it to say for present purposes that I, of course, couldn’t take that lying down and not finishing a race due to “environmental circumstances” is paramount to ego death by slow torture.
Volunteers want the best view at the first ever Iron-man 70.3 Mandurah?
Be part of the atmosphere of the newest 70.3 event on the race calendar by being involved in an official capacity. You might be a local wanting to support your community, an avid triathlete, a veteran volunteer, a student wanting to gain experience at a world class event, or simply a lover of sport.
The Ironman World Championships 70.3 will be held next month at Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada USA on 9th September 2012.
Ian Hepenstall recently reported on the lead up to the World Championship 70.3 that they come from “a land downunder” – stacks of them – and the heat is really on for next weekend’s Marine Corps Ironman World Championship 70.3.

North Coast donated a Club cycling top to a charity function that the Sorrento Surf Club held last Saturday night. The occasion was to raise money for Sorrento Club stalwarts; the Bunford’s who recently lost all their possessions in a house fire. So much in demand was the cycle top that in the silent auction it reached $310.00. The successful bidder was Graeme Nash – immediate past president of Sorrento Surf club and this year current member of North Coast.
It’s been another wonderful and eventful season, The Club has tried to present to you activities and functions that made your season with North Coast an enjoyable one. The summer Aquathlon series was an outstanding success with record numbers attending our races. We even pulled off the “Battle of the Beach” Aquathlon against Sorrento Surf Club.
