The Tathra Sunshine Club is a club of surfboard riders of all ages. It was formed in 1983 and is a not-for-profit group and it annually passes on some of the dollars that have come its way — from events, sponsorships, etc — to local groups.
Its the same group that annually organises what used to be known as the Cooge Classic, a surfboard riding competition. “Cooge” was the nickname for local Surfer Bruce Meaker who died many years ago — and the Cooge Classic was inaugurated as a memorial competition in his honour. The event is now just called “The Classic” and this year will be held over the long weekend June 7-8.
Above, the President of the Tathra Sunshine Club, Michael Clarke, presents Anthony Taylor, President of the Tathra Volunteer Rural Fire Brigade, with a cheque for $200. Clarke said the group appreciated the work the Rural Fire Service did in fire fighting in the Tathra district."
The Sunshine Club continually support the Tathra Fire Brigade with large donations and to that we say a most sincere thankyou.
