NORTH Queens­land Surf lifesavers of all ages are gear­ing up for their first carnival of the year to be held at Mis­sion Beach this week­end.

Port Dou­glas Surf Life Sav­ing Club ex­pects to field a strong con­tin­gent in sev­eral age groups from Un­der-8s through to the Masters.

For­mer green cap Jonte Rev­ell, who has watched from the side­lines for a num­ber of years, is ex­cited about com­pet­ing in his first carnival.

He will com­pete in wade races and on the beach along­side fel­low new­com­ers Hunta Lan­g­ley, Jas­mine Ed­mond­son, Troy McNeill, Oliver Fer­gu­son and Poppy Maun­der.

Mean­while, sea­soned Nip­per com­peti­tors Elisa Markham, Finn and Mia Devine Cameron, Mitchell Knight, Ali­son Munro and Harry Good­man are all expected to place well in their age cat­e­gories hav­ing had ad­di­tional prepa­ra­tion fol­low­ing their se­lec­tion to com­pete at the Queens­land Ju­nior State Ti­tles ear­lier in the year.

Port Masters’ com­peti­tors are also in the run­ning to place well in a num­ber of events.

Grant Knight has been train­ing hard on the ski and is expected to out­per­form more sea­soned com­peti­tors.

All rounders Ed Lukin, Brian Markham, John Good­man and Col Cameron will be hard to beat in their age groups along­side Kelly McNa­mara, Nikki Innes, Lynn But­terss and Sara McLeod who will con­test ev­ery­thing from swims, ski races, iron­woman events and beach sprints.

The win­ner will be an­nounced at a gala din­ner in Bris­bane later this month.
