First prize is a $500 delicious Ranch 45 gourmet take-away meal for four; includes expert wine-pairing by Riboli Family Wines.

The Del Mar Lifeguard Association (DMLA) is dedicated to the promotion of beach safety and ocean lifeguard standards through training, international exchange programs, competition, and education.

Captain Gardner Stevens, a Rotarian, created the Del Mar Lifeguard Department. Lifeguards advise, protect and rescue swimmers, surfers, divers and boaters, and provide emergency care to the sick and injured. They also deploy SCUBA and swift-water rescue teams to ocean, river and flood emergencies. DMLA members average over 1,000 ocean rescues and 1,100 medical aids per year.

Past Rotary Club President Brett Mattei is a proud member of the DMLA who got his first taste of volunteer work in 1980 when Captain Stevens urged him to participate in a Rotary project. Seven years later the Rotary Club of Del Mar gave him a scholarship for graduate studies. Now a retired diplomat, Brett helps coordinate Rotary Club of Del Mar and DMLA joint projects in our community.
