On Saturday 19 March Rainbow Beach Surf Club held their annual Patrol Teams Invitational.
The day saw our club’s eight patrol teams compete against each other for the prestigious honour of being crowned Champions.
In a shock result, Team 5 secured victory after successfully lobbying to have Team 4 disqualified from the Board Rescue event. Led courageously by Tas McClintock and Greg Nott, Team 5 walked the walk after well and truly talking the talk in a pre-competition press conference.
Asked how they went about securing victory, Patrol Captain Tas McClintock said it was “simply a case of ensuring we had more points than the other teams”. Greg Nott confidently added “yeah we made sure we had more points than the other teams”.
In a highly controversial move, Team 1 lodged several unsuccessful challenges to the validity of the point scoring system given it generally rewarded skill, fitness, participation and performance.
Team 1’s High Performance Manager, Media Liaison Officer, Complaints Registrar & Chef de Mission were unfortunately unavailable for further comment.
Notwithstanding the above challenges (which may be real or perceived), the carnival committee warmly thanks the organisers, helpers, and competitors for a fantastic day of light hearted and spirited competition on the beach and look forward to doing it again next year!
