The Sans Souci Dolphins spearfishing club is throwing a massive celebration to celebrate 70 years and you’re invited. If you’re a current or old member of the Dolphins please come!
There will be plenty of food and drink provided by the club. We have planned a spit roast or 2, a large paella, beef sausages and plenty of salads. Drinks will be free, provided gratis by the club, until they run out. Feel free to BYO. The bar will be open for more drinks at a cost. The bar only accepts CASH.
Original founding members and past members will be in attendance to tell some spearfishing war stories and remember the fish that got away to swim another day. Dolphins will be travelling from near and far to catch up with old mates and new, of course there’ll be laughs and a few drinks around some warm fire pits.
Please feel free to bring family and friends. If you’re a past member we would like to see you back for the 70th. You were once part of the club and you’ve in some way or another made the club the success it is today. Please bring family or friends that will be respectful to others and the occasion.
There will also be a big raffle, the club has opted not to have a fixed cover charge for the event, but none the less, there will be a raffle with some amazing prizes. As such, we ask that you bring some cash to support the event and the club by purchasing tickets.
There will also be a 70th Anniversary t-shirt, which will be available for pre-order. Details to come.
If anyone would like to bring old speargvns, dolphins/spearfishing memorabilia, especially old photos, please do so it would greatly add to the event. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to myself or Vita. If you are intending to bring family and friends please indicate to me by messaging me directly so we can account for further food and drinks.
Répondez s’il vous plaît (RSVP) ASAP and before the 31st of May. if you intend to bring family and friends please PM me so I can consolidate numbers. Look forward to seeing you all there. Cheers Luke

2021 Sans Souci Dolphins Xmas party is here, and wait for it…
We’re having it at the club house!! Tuesday the 14th of December.
Paella and prizes just to wet the appetite. Come along, join us in the celebrations and ring out the dive year. So much to celebrate and looking forward to a great season of PB’s and first’s speared by all. May your dive socks be filled with goodies and your tree flasher be full of fish below. Raffle prizes on the night so don’t forget your ticket money. Food galore and a bar for all, what more could you ask for.
Merry Christmas and hope to see you there for a couple of beers.
We will also be holding our Annual General Meeting, and club’s Committee will be formed for the next year.
We now accept expressions of interest and nominations for committee positions.
Being on club’s committee is a great way to both give back to the club and fast-track your progression in sport.
Membership of the committee is usually fun and includes a secret handshake and a detailed map of reliable Sydney jewie holes.
I’m sure most of you are aware the prime minister outlined some further restrictions on the Australian people in the battle against the Covid 19 virus at this time. These new restrictions are aimed at eliminating any unnecessary group gatherings, and unfortunately this includes future club meetings and dive events. This will be in place until health warnings and recommendations change allowing the return to business as usual, and hopefully soon. The South Sydney Amateur Fishing Club will also be closing it’s doors until the threat subsides.
There will be no club meetings, and no club dives until the situation changes.
These are uneasy times and i hope your all staying safe and abiding by health recommendations until the threat is under control and recommendations change.
This has not been easy for me to put in place and have been putting it off till the very last minute, but absolutely necessary and unavoidable. I implore everyone to maintain a share of information and any queries you may have, especially the newer members, on our facebook page.
I am hoping to put out some content each month such as recorded presentations on various spearfishing topics as well.
Hi Dolphins, a wee sports report for the past couple of months. Relating some Competition and Social events and Club Championship results to date.
The National Spearfishing Championships were held around the Port Fairy area of Victoria, we had the one Dolphin participate in the Nationals and that was Evan Leeson.
Evan had done some serious training for the event, in particular diving around Tasmania, I heard looking for Crayfish and other succulent seafood that the cold waters of the Tasman are renowned for – he struck out on almost all accounts despite becoming intimate with the complete map of Tasmania, yet when he arrived to scout the area for the Nationals he found the Southern Rock lobster to be in abundance, and the odd 22kg Southern Bluefin Tuna. Evan fared ok in the event finishing outside the Top Ten and he is keen to return to another Nationals in the near future.
Paul Marsh graciously donated a 20 kg Mulloway to the NSW Research Angler Program . The fish was estimated to be 10 years old and was caught around the Central Coast at spot X in the middle of Winter. Well done Mudcrab!
The Dolphin’s Challenge, newly introduced, is a great concept as it will allow all Dolphin’s to enter a fish they have speared whilst engaging in either a social environment or other organized spearfishing event, basically it is available to enter every day of the year.
The inaugural event will run from 17th November 2017 until 30th June 2018 with the presentation of awards and prizes handed out at our now legendary Christmas in July bash.
How it works: In a nutshell you enter a fish you feel appropriate for that specie and if it is still in the top ten of its category at the end of the event you will receive points for that fish (10pts for heaviest, 9pts for 2nd heaviest, etc. – see rules for more detail). The twenty categories targeted can be readily speared in NSW waters, such as Bonito, Bream, Goatfish, Morwong (any), Kingfish (any), Snapper; also included Squid (not Cuttlefish) and Crayfish.
There is also a category for Open Largest Fish Pelagic, and, Open Largest Fish Reef. (Only one entry into any eligible category per fish.)
Each competitor can only present two entries per category over the eight-month period, strategy is wise.
This year’s prizes and trophies will equal approx $2,000!
