  • Life Members Award - Chris Mark (18/11/2016)

    On behalf of the Life Members, George Gallagher awarded Chris Mark a life membership at the AGM held on 11 September 2016. George gave a brief history about Chris.

    Chris joined the club forty odd years ago as a nipper. He loved the water and swimming at Lyall Bay and Maranui. He became a top junior competitor and then moved into the senior ranks following in his father’s footsteps. His father was also a top competitor and a national title holder representing Maranui and a long time captain of the NZ water polo team. Chris was a Wellington rep as a junior, he excelled at water polo. George mentioned that Chris had his 21st at Maranui resulting in what George described as the biggest food fight in Wellington after someone threw a cream cake. The clubhouse had to be hosed out. Chris married Julie Moore whose father is a life member of the club. Chris and Julie have two children, Toby and Sophie who both compete in the club. Chris’ legacy will be with coaching the nippers. He started coaching with a nipper membership of 15 and now has about 200. Chris can take a lot of pride in the work he has done for the club.

    He is also an advocate of keeping the bay clean and advocated to retain the club after the fire.

    A huge congratulations Chris - an award well deserved.

    Tracey Reynolds - Team Manager
    After many months of training, preparation and a warm up Interclub event for Capital Coast, the Maranui Pool Champs team of 16 athletes (14 juniors and two seniors) made their way to Auckland for the New Zealand Surf Life Saving Pool Championships during October 7-9. Over 600 athletes from 31 clubs attended, across age groups from 10 years through to Masters, all contesting for the Paul Kent Memorial Trophy.

    The New Zealand Pool Championships is the single largest pool event in the country and attracted international attention from a NSW team in Australia. There were around 400 races with events including rescue medleys, swimming with fins while carrying a rescue tube, brick carries, line throws and 'rescuing' a manikin off the bottom of the pool for sen-iors. A great competition made up of individual and team events - a spectator spectacular!

    Maranui was placed 15th from 31 teams with only a few points separat-ing 11th-15th place. Congratulations to Sophie Irving and Sam Kilduff who both gained National titles - Sophie in the Women’s 13 and Under 100m Swim with Obstacles and Sam in the Men’s 10 and Under 50m Swim with Obstacles. Congratulations also to the U11 boys team who gained two Gold medals and one Silver medal in their relay events. Along with medal winners the team also obtained 19 individual top 10 placings and two team top 10 placings. Well done team Maranui!

    A big thank you must go out to the coaches Matt Titcombe and Ben Teusse (and Marc Pulepule in the early months) in preparing the ath-letes for the event. Their time and commitment to the team and trainings was outstanding.

    From the Saturday morning sessions to the condensed holiday train-ings, the team worked hard to perfect their skills. We were also fortu-nate to train alongside Lyall Bay SLSC in the latter part of the year gain-ing extra assistance from Walter and the seniors, including Junior Black Fin, Alaynah Bettany adding her experience coming off Worlds. The athletes took away some valuable tips and tricks (and new found rivalry and friendship) as they geared up for Auckland.

    From the thrills and spills of the pool (the titles, medals and near miss-es, the tog slide, tube slops and bops and gate wrangles), to our well-appointed accommodation and set of wheels (Rusty the van) - much fun was had by all. The team showed amazing spirit and sportsmanship across the competition and represented Maranui with pride.

    Thanks also to parents and siblings who supported the team in Auckland. A ‘cheer squad’, complete with our very own stand on Day One, superb! I think we may have also taken out the award for best ‘solo cheer performance’ - you know who you are, Lynda!

    We would also like to acknowledge Raglan Roast Coffee for their fantastic sponsorship of our T-Shirts, photographer extraordinaire Rachael, timekeepers Lynda, Hari, Grant and Reg, our chauffeurs Wayne and Deirdre, behind the scenes work of Sascha and last but not least, No57 and the ‘Garage’ – thank you.

    We look forward to rolling up our sleeves and formulat-ing next year’s event. Not only have we athletes that are talented at beach sports but we are also proving a force in the pool. Athletes, you are truly amazing! There may even be talk of masters training with the team next year …. watch this space!
