History of the Coledale Oysters (formerly Northern Oysters)
Winter Swimming Club

How the club was formed

On a winters day in 1964 a challenge was issued from the Coledale RSL to the Northern Suburbs Leagues Club for a swim relay in the Oyster infested pool at Coledale (That’s how we came by our name).
North’s won and the following year 1965 saw the first season of the northern Oysters Winter Swimming Club.
The old pool was then only 33 yards long.
Up until 1924 there had been a natural rock pool in the area of the present pool and in that year the North Bulli Mine commissioned two of their miners, Charlie Ring and Jack Charlton to extend the pool.
The blasting had to be done at low tide and this sometimes meant late at night. Apparently there were complaints from the locals about an almighty blast at midnight. Charley Ring claimed the blast was delayed due to the fuse getting wet. The local people arranged working bees to remove the rubble and this was placed against the cliff and forms the base for the path up to the scout hall.
In 1968 the pool was extended to 50 metres and properly squared off with the addition of diving blocks.
My thanks to Gary Turner for this information which was featured in the Northern News in 1991.
We changed our name to the Coledale Oysters in 1983 when we used to adjourn to the Northern Suburbs League Club (Now it’s the Planet day care centre).
We moved to our present home at the RSL in 1995 when North’s was sold.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
