President 2003-06, Director of Finance & Administration 2000-03, 2009-11

Joined in 1970 as a “nipper”, he was involved in Surf Belt and R & R notching up club and State medals in the early ’70s. Family and other commitments necessitated a hiatus in 1983, from which he returned in 1992.

Developing a strong interest in passing on his skills he became Junior Age Manager (1994-99), Junor Competition Officer (1998-2003), progressing to Coaching Coordinator (2000-01), Under 16 Officer (2001-02) and Under 19 Officer (2006-07).

As the Club’s accountant and having his own business as a CPA, it was a natural fit that he assumed responsibility at Board level as Director of Finance, followed by a stint as President. Wife Vicki gave wonderful support for more than a decade in the administration of the Club, including Director of Administration for 7 years.

He was Best Clubman in 2002, and awarded Life Membership in 2008.

David can still be seen on the beach training our Youth members in Board skills.
