Dr MARJORIE O'NEILL (Coogee) (20:19): I congratulate the Bondi Icebergs Club on its fantastic ninetieth birthday celebrations. In 1929 a group of local lifesavers who were trying to stay fit over the winter founded the club. They drew up the club's constitution, including the 15B rule, which states that to maintain membership swimmers must compete on three Sundays out of four for five years. The rule is still in place.
The club's ninetieth anniversary ball was a wonderful event to celebrate its rich history. I thank president Benn Dullard and the rest of the board of directors for having me. I congratulate them on hosting a fantastic event. Happy birthday!
