Preso’s Report

After a very shaky start, the season 2016 presentation night was enjoyed by many, preceded by a delicious dinner provided by our new 2017 sponsors, the Ettalong Alfresco Brasserie.

Upon arrival to set up at 3pm we were greeted by about one hundred and fifty UFC fight fans in the club auditorium. A little mix up in the bookings required a very late and hasty set up before dinner. I had delegated the proceedings for the evening to our social committee this year so it wasn’t the ideal initiation for them but Mel, Simone and Darrellhandledthe situation without fuss.

After nineteen years with the OBMC, I finally jagged my first (and most likely last) club championship along with Angi Smith who won the ladies club champion title. 2016 was another very disrupted season and it showed in the point score with many fancied surfers not being able to surf postponed contests, therefore several divisions could not field surfers who had competed in the required number of competitions for trophy qualification. (And some are just too old to have more than one in it….but that’s just how he likes it). The winners of each age category were:

Under 14’s
– 1st. Josh Stewart. Under 18’s – 1st. Olivia Edwards.  Over 18’s – 1st– Mitch Conwell, 2nd– Artie Kopylov, 3rd– Matt Sing. Over 35’s – 1st– Darrell Young, 2nd– Luke Dalton, 3rd– Angi Smith. Over 45’s – 1st– Garth Willison, 2nd– Dave Hiscock, 3rd– Gavin Edwards. Over 50’s – 1st– Alan Copelin, 2nd– Mark Rylands. Over 55’s – 1st– Craig Coulton, 2nd– Mark Williams, 3rd– Garry Halliday. Over 60’s – 1st– Daryl ‘Ozzie’ Anderson.

John Sharpe was voted clubman of the year and Darrell Young won the most improved surfer for 2016. Tony Gilbert won the perpetual ‘Ultimate Dipstick’ award for his effort in turning up to the beach bright and early the morning of the September contest thinking it was the first day of daylight saving and wondering why nobody was there on such a fine day. He was only one week early! A little birdie tells us Tony wasn’t the only one, but contestant number two didn’t quite make it to the beach before realising. Darrell Young was the lucky winner of the Big Boys Boards 8’2” mini mal in the members’ raffle while Gavin Edwards won the lucky door prize. ‘Ozzie’ again showed his skills in the coin toss, winning both bottles of Malibu Rum.

Photos from the evening are available on the club facebook page and again I would like to thank Jodie Walsh Photography for taking on the job at very short notice.

Tickets to the 2016 OBMC Christmas raffle will be issued at the November contest and we ask all members to either sell or purchase a book of tickets. We will also be selling tickets in West St, Umina (near the centre crossing) on Saturday 10th and Saturday 17th December from 8am on both days. 1st prize is a Big Boys Boards 9’4” logger malibu, 2nd prize: Lenovo AB-50 8” tablet computer, 3rd prize: Makita 6281DWPE cordless drill. Tickets are $2 each, three for $5, eight for $10 or the whole book of twenty tickets for just $20. The raffle will be drawn on Saturday,      17th December at 3pm in the Ettalong Bowling Club. All monies and tickets must be returned to me prior to that time.  Photos of the board are available on the OBMC website and facebook page. I would like to give a big thank you to Corey Barnes at Big Boys Boards for donating the first prize logger.

I remind surfers that the old mals are provided for the annual Long John Memorial Old Mal Day the week following the November contest. It is not a fancy dress event this year but is proposed as such in 2017. Social members can surf in this event.

Cheers,
Craig C.
