Cory Burke presents local Paul Badcock with the $1500 membership draw winnings!

Rainbow Beach Surf Club Member, Paul Badcock from Rainbow Beach, remembers his number drawn years ago – because he wasn’t there!

The surf lifesaver volunteers sell the raffle each week with generous prizes from local eateries, alcohol and the mandatory – and popular – meat trays. Even the booby prize is something useful – a bulk number of toilet rolls from Cooloola Wholesaler!

After the raffles, one lucky financial member’s number is drawn. Before Christmas they upped the stakes, with multiple member’s draws in one night.

This time Paul was present, and ready to claim his prize. Operations Manager, Cory Burke handed over $1500!

Paul said he has been a member for 28 years. He and his wife Glenys were delighted!

Member’s draws are on every Friday night. Raffle sales start around 5.30 to 6pm, with draws starting from 7pm. It’s a great night to catch up with the everyone, there are always the regulars – tables full of locals enjoying their Friday night out.

There are many reasons for joining the Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Supporters’ Club. Membership allows you and your guest access to the club and its facilities.

By patronising the bar, restaurant, pokies and Keno you will be helping put lifesavers and vital lifesaving equipment on the beach.

It only costs a few dollars to join the club. Plus there is a new menu to try out, and Valentine’s Day to celebrate in February. See you Friday night!
