Rainbow Beach Surf Club wins gong

SIX years of dedication paid off for the Rainbow Beach supporters and surf clubs when they won the Best Club in Wide Bay award on Saturday night.

The Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Club won the award at the IGT and Clubs Queensland Awards for Excellence at Jupiters on the Gold Coast.

Awards were handed out in 34 categories, in recognition of excellence in all aspects of community club operation.

President of the Rainbow Beach Supporters Club and surf club treasurer Nev Holt said the award was just desserts for the dedication of both committees during the past six to eight years.

“It is a real feather in our cap to receive such an accolade.

“It is a big tick going forward,” Mr Holt said.

He said the club had plans for further expansion after the major renovation of the club’s facade.

Club manager Brad Robb was “stoked” with the win.

“It was a shock to win it, Mr Robb said. “In the last three years the club has grown, it is a real coup.” He said it was a credit to all the staff and the club committees who have worked so hard.
