2018 Membership Application

2018 Membership Application

Hi members.
I hope you all had an enjoyable Xmas and New Year period.
The 2018 OBMC membership application form, Code of conduct and Big Boys Boards cash back card application forms are linked below for download.
If you can print and complete the required forms prior to the registration day on January 28 it will save us considerable time on the day.
Sponsors, there is no need for your personal details unless you will be surfing with us too. Please have whoever you nominate as your second member fill in an application also.
Sally Oman from ‘Sals Surf School’ will be bringing along a few of her students to the contest and will also be celebrating their 1st birthday with a few drinks at the Jungle Tree at the completion of the comp. We may even progress to Umina Surf Club’s Sunday Sips.
Cheers,

Craig C.

Next contest – Sunday, 30th April at 8am.

Preso’s Report

I remind surfers that the contest start time reverts to 8am from the upcoming April comp through to and including the August contest.

The 2017 club t-shirts will be allocated to financial club members at the April comp. Those who cannot attend the contest can ring me on 0412 616 368 to arrange collection.

Surfing NSW is again conducting a “Surfers Rescue 24/7 Program” first held back in 2013. This is a FREE, 3 hour course which involves practical training to teach you techniques on how to use your surfboard as a life saving device, as well as CPR training. A certificate is issued after completing the course. Please advise me if you are interested in participating and I will notify you when a date has been determined. The group will comprise members of the OBMC, GRUBS and Umina Boardriders in order to get sufficient numbers to hold the course.

There are still a few videos of the November 2016 and February 2017 contests remaining courtesy of Peter Walsh. These are only $5 each & both contain additional footage worth the money on its own. Rather than making individual contest videos, Pete will now do a compilation of three or four comps per disc.

The committee last month voted on whether to allow ‘soft boards’ to compete in OBMC contests. It was overwhelmingly approved so if you know anyone who only has a soft board but would like to compete anyway, let them know. The boards must still be of Malibu shape and the 8ft limit still applies to senior men.

 

March contest report

The return to competition of both Chris Irwin and Ben Scully-Hawkins after  a couple of years absence was always going to make things that little bit harder for the current championship leader Mitch Conwell. All three were round one winners, along with Craig Coulton making up the four finalists. Some great surfing from Benny saw him come away with first place with Mitch in second, while the old fella at least knocked off one of the young hot shots to place third by just 0.2 of a point ahead of Chris Irwin. It’s great to have you back guys and we look forward to some much more even battles throughout the year.

Garth Willison took out the second’s from Gavin Edwards and Darrell Young in third place while young Olivia Edwards, showing much improvement recently, managed to edge out Richie McClelland in the thirds with Gillian Moran in third spot. Richie is no slouch on any type of surfboard so that was certainly one tremendous effort by Olivia. The fourth’s saw the unofficial battle of the over 60’s (with the exception of Angi) with Ron Stockings taking the honours from Daryl (Ozzie) Anderson and John Rodney in third place. Craig Palmer was too good for the rest of the field in the fifth’s, with Artie Kopylov another to show great improvement recently placing second and Alan Copelin in third.

I still need names for anyone interested in a lawn bowls tournament against some of the other sporting clubs which are sponsored by the Ettalong Bowling Club, most likely to be held in August.

Cheers,

Craig C.

Preso’s Report

Surfers are reminded that the 2017 membership fees are due at the Feb 26 contest. Fees are $60 male, $40 female and $10 for fulltime primary or secondary students. Social membership is available for $35. Social members can attend all OBMC events and are eligible to surf in the annual Old Mal Day and Charity Challenge only. Fees include your club t-shirt and dinner for yourself and partner at the annual presentation evening. A contest fee of $10 is applicable for each comp you surf which includes a ticket in the raffle for prizes donated by our sponsors. The raffle is conducted at the Ettalong Bowling Club at the completion of each contest. This year you no longer have to be present at the draw as each surfer will be given a ticket but those who do make the effort to come back to the bowlo will be given a bonus ticket. Prizes won by those not attending the draw will be on a pick up basis only. I will not be delivering them. Remember that Ettalong Bowling Club is our major sponsor.

If you choose to pay your membership by direct deposit please remember to include your name in the reference field. Account details are: Ocean Beach Malibu Club: St George Bank, Woy Woy, BSB: 112879, ACC: 119456970

New members are most welcome. An 8ft minimum length mal is applicable to senior male surfers while both juniors (under 16) and females may ride any size board as long as it is of Malibu shape (at the contest director’s discretion). Please note that most longboard clubs have a minimum 9ft requirement.

 

The 2017 annual general meeting conducted at the Ettalong Bowling Club on Sunday, 29th January brought about a few changes to proceedings, along with a couple of new committee members. We welcome Regan Russell and Rob Baranic to the committee and thank our outgoing social director Mel Sharpe for the tremendous effort she has put into the club during her three years with us. We also have a new vice-president with Darrell Young stepping up as my apprentice.

It was decided to revert back to a calendar year point score commencing in 2018. A contest will be added to January and the November date will now be used for the ‘Long John Memorial Old Mal Day’, hence getting it off the same weekend as the ‘Rumble in the Jungle’, giving those who compete in the latter all of December to sober up….     The October contest this year will now be added to the 2017 point score and the 26th November will now be the date for the ‘Old Mal’. The 2017 presentation night will be held THAT evening. Remember to alter the dates on your events calendar. The Ettalong Bowling Club auditorium has already been booked so this year we will downsize the presentation and conduct it in the Ettalong Alfresco Brasserie after dinner.

While 2016 was by far the best year ever for member participation in running the contests, judging still has its problems with several surfers going home without advising any of the contest directors and leaving us short of judges. Therefore it was determined that a failure to show for judging will incur a 10 point penalty from your day’s points tally (at the contest director’s discretion). Please arrange with someone else to judge for you if you need to go or at least advise the contest director.

All contest, membership and sponsorship fees remain unchanged, as do the bbq and drink prices. It was also decided to purchase a new, all in one sound system along with a specially designed beach trolley which will make transporting the equipment to and from the beach much easier.  A photo of the new equipment can be viewed on the OBMC facebook page.

If any member would like a copy of the minutes of the meeting please let me know and I will email it to you.

The 2017 OBMC committee is:

President – Craig Coulton
Vice-President – Darrell Young
Treasurer – Matt Sing
Secretary – Ken Darby
Gear Steward – Craig Palmer
Contest Director – Garry Halliday
Assistant Contest Director 1 – Dave Hiscock
Assistant Contest Director 2 – Regan Russell
Social Director – Darrell Young
Social Committee – Simone Hallaran, Corey Barnes, Rob Baranic

 

The ‘4 way’ interclub contest against Shelly Beach Malibu Club, Wallarah Longboard Club and Central Coast Malibu Club is on this coming Sunday, 19th February at Shelly Beach. We would like to get the first heat in the water at 7am so try to get there by 6.30am as ‘nippers’ is on also and parking spots fill up quickly. As most would know by now, the tag team event has been dropped in preference for one ladies heat, one junior heat and as many open heats as time and conditions permit so as many surfers as possible get to compete. Everyone is welcome to come to support your favourite club. It is a charity day and raffle prizes are available so bring some cash with you!!!

Finally, I wish to thank all of our sponsors who once again have come on board to support our great little club. We couldn’t do it without you!

Cheers,

Craig C.
