A fascinating history of Maroochydore Surf Club
  • Monday 19 January 2015

Step back in time with well-known Maroochydore Surf Club member Bob ‘Limey’ Bowerman for an author talk at Maroochydore Library from 2 to 3pm on Tuesday, February 10.

Bob will recount some of his work as a lifesaver before inflatable craft, jet skis and rescue helicopters. He will also show some fascinating illustrative history from the fifties and sixties.

This was the time when most of the members travelled to the Coast from Brisbane each weekend to do their patrol and then stay in the clubhouse for the weekend. Bob has many stories to share.

Bob has published his memories and photographs in the book A line in the Sand.

This is a free event and bookings are essential by visiting Council’s library website or calling 5475 8989.
