After a very successful 2014 Aussies campaign where we had one of the largest touring teams ever and our best ever result at an Aussies with 5 medals we are now planning for the Aussies in 2015 to be held at Kirra Beach on the Gold Coast.

The Aussies 2015 date has been confirmed and it will commence on Monday 13th – Sunday 19th of April 2015 at North Kirra Beach on the Gold Coast QLD.

Masters will be the Monday and Tuesday with Open competition commencing on the Wednesday.

We have been searching for suitable accommodation for the Henley SLSC and can confirm we have been able to secure 13 x 2 bedroom apartments at Palm Beach for approx. up to $150 per night (TBC), this facility has direct access to the beach and has BBQ areas, swimming pools, gym and a tennis court. Each 2 bedroom self-contained apartment can sleep up to 5 people. Palm Beach is approx. 6km’s from the Carnival.

The Henley SLSC Exec Management Committee has agreed to pay the deposit for 13 apartments for now as they agree and understand that for some families to book and pay now may be too hard and to ensure we can have all the club stay at one location we felt this was a  good outcome. We will require the deposit by August, however once you are 100% sure of attending by paying your deposit will ensure your apartment is locked in. Note the accommodation on the coast is filling daily.

As we saw in Perth the Henley SLSC competitors can mix it with the best in the country making many semifinals and finals and winning medals so don’t underestimate what you can achieve if you prepare and train for this event.

For this carnival we hope to expand on the events we competed in this year and hope to field more teams in beach relays, champion life saver, R&R and belt rescue to mention a few, you never know we might even get a March past team together.

If you are looking for a family holiday (it is during school holidays) and also get involved in the excitement of the SLS Aussies then please consider this, if unsure have a chat to the Area Captains or your Age Group Co-ordinator and more importantly if you want to secure an apartment please let me know at as soon as possible.

To those families who have already advised they will be attending no need to reply.
