January 2015 Patrol reportPosted by MidwayAdmin on Saturday, 31 January 2015
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic time bringing in the New Year. Patrol Teams ONO, WHITU and WARU brought us in watching over those R'N'V revellers still hanging around. The weather has held off for us luckily enough, still clouds hanging around. But the swell has stuck around enough for a wee bit of fun.
Local champs are upon us! Congrats to Midway for holding onto local supremacy for a record 16th year in a row. Here's to another 16 years! Well done to all those who competed and filled in on patrols. Another very successful weekend down on at Midway Beach. Patrols TAHI, RUA and TORU all were stacked with competitors, so again, thank you to those who helped out.
Wow what a gorgeous weekend! Stunning weather and some fun conditions to be had down at Midway Beach. Across the road at the Olympic Pools many of our finest were competing at the Hawkes Bay Poverty Bay swimming championships. Well done to all those who were part of another successful Gisborne Event. Patrol teams WHA, RIMA and ONO made sure the beach was safe for another weekend. Big showing once again by Midway, Thanks everyone.
The continuous event in Surf Life Saving rolls on. I must say a huge shoutout to all those who made the trip to Mount Manganui. Well done guys, who made Midway Proud! And a big thank you to those members of patrol teams WHITU, WARU and TAHI as well as those who helped out for Auckland Anniversary Day - conditions really were horrible. Unfortunately the good news stops there as, we mourn the loss of two young men. Thank you to those Midway members who assisted helping out with the tragedy out at Makarori Beach this weekend. Our prayers are with the family.

It looks like Gisborne has given up on summer already! Let's hope this weather turns to the Gisborne summer we all deserve! Huge numbers of patrol members down at Midway Beach looking after the few who braved the conditions this weekend. Good stuff patrol teams RUA, TORU and WHA.
