Mairangi Bay Surf Lifesaving Club (MBSLSC) held their annual Senior Club Prizegiving late last month to celebrate another great season. The Mairangi Bay Bowling Club was once again the host venue for the event. Leigh Storey, club administrator was very pleased with the venue “A huge thank you to the Bowling club for the use of their facilities, they did a wonderful job with our event and it's great to be able to keep it local.” 

MBSLSC certainly has a fair amount to be proud of, even with COVID stopping the Northern Region & National Championships. Members can be proud of their awesome achievements and stats from the 2020/2021 season.”  

The club finished 4th at New Zealand Pool Championships and 10th at IRB Nationals.
