King Billy Series – #9 Cancelled 6 Feb

BREAKING NEWS: King Billy #9 scheduled for Thurs 6 Feb has been rescheduled due to unfavourable weather. New date TBA.

Once again the faithful will converge and over the course of 10 clashes, decide who is most worthy of King Billy greatness in the brand new series of 2019/20. First race gets underway on 10th October from 5pm at the Sinbad St Boat Ramp (Chicken’s to the locals).

Following on from the continued success of our Saturday heats last year, organisers have factored in two weekend outings, plus an epic Australia Day showdown on 26th January.

Meet your Member Advocate

Our club is committed to the principles of inclusion, tolerance and fairness for all, and recently we have strengthened our approach by introducing the new position of member advocate. Lynne Dean has filled the role of Member Advocate, and she is responsible for providing an impartial, confidential and constructive environment for members to report and discuss matters of concern. Lynne’s door is open to all members, who can contact her directly via the club’s dedicated member advocate email address: mailto:scclubadvocate@gmail.com

At Lynne’s recommendation, members can source more information about fairness, inclusion and safety in sport through the Play By the Rules initiative, which provides resources and training to sporting organisations in partnership with State Governments throughout Australia.
