Hi all and welcome back for the start of a new season. To all our new members, a special welcome and we hope you have a great time at the Layback point scores, functions and fun days for 2019.
Our first point score for 2019 gave us a light onshore wind for most of the day. There were some real fun waves, some outstanding heats, and even two full heats of old mals which I haven’t seen for years. Well done guys and girls. A big thanks to Mark and Corey for keeping us fed and hydrated. With quite a few new faces and the old ones too, we still need to focus on our judging. It’s always judge a heat two heats before your surf: judge a heat, rest on the next, and then surf your heat.
Coming up to the next point score in March we will also be doing our part for Clean Up Australia Day. We can take turns in the clean up from 8am-10am. Other things to be aware of for 2019: the hundred club is still going at $10 for your chance to win a Carabine surfboard; a $2 a ticket small raffle at each point score (won by one of our new members Grant Joy this month); and, a $2 donation at each point score for breakfast and lunch – not a bad deal! We would also like to run a 9am kid’s heat where the parents are in the water with the kids and can push them onto some waves, so keep an eye out for that.
On a final note, don’t forget that the offer for free membership still stands for anyone willing to take on the role of gear steward for 2019.
