Nippers big medal haul

Byron Bay Nippers travelled south to Yamba on Sunday for a junior surf life saving carnival.


 Once again Byron started the day off well, taking gold in the traditional march past, followed by a silver placing in the all-age relay.


The day continued to bring in many individual and team medals, with 19 gold, 18 silver and 15 bronze medals for the Bay, with every age group bringing home medals across the full range of beach and water events.


Byron Bay will host a teams carnival on Byron Bay’s Main Beach this coming Sunday, and the junior club will be running a BBQ canteen in front of the surf club on the day to raise funds.


Spectators are more than welcome.
