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.
