Life­savers lick flag chal­lenge

Pilbara News - - News - ■ Tom Zaun­mayr

Port Wal­cott Surf Life­sav­ing Club kicked off their first meet­ing with games and ice-cream in Dampier at the week­end.

A small group met on Sun­day morn­ing at the same time pa­trons started trick­ling into the Kar­ratha Bik­ers As­so­ci­a­tion’s mo­tor show at Hamp­ton Oval next door.

The group were put through their paces on the sand in team re­lays and the ever-pop­u­lar flags race. There was a bit of a twist to keep ev­ery­one cool on the day though, with chil­dren and dads com­mando-crawl­ing the first few me­tres to a plate of quickly melt­ing ice-cream.

Af­ter fin­ish­ing the ice-cream with­out us­ing their hands, it was onto their feet to a race to a sin­gle flag to de­ter­mine the win­ners.

Club pres­i­dent Kate Turner thanked ev­ery­one for turn­ing up and get­ting in­volved.

Chloe Terry, 8, Tay­lah Hooper, 7, and Cleo Cullen, 7, dive for the flag.
