Hi everyone & a warm welcome to all of our new members.

So far for 2018 we have signed 22 new members plus 4 returning members with more to follow I believe.
It’s going to be a very big year!

This coming Sunday (4/2/18) sees the annual Central Coast Charity Longboard Challenge with the OBMC up against Shelly Beach Malibu Club, Wallarah Longboard Club and the Central Coast Malibu Club up at Catherine Hill Bay (middle car park). The first heat will be in the water at 7am sharp so could all competitors please be there by 6.30am. The long range forecast is looking excellent on the wave front, with a 1.5m SE swell along with moderate SSW winds swinging to the south around 11am but getting lighter as the day progresses.

Please note this is a charity fundraiser being hosted by the Wallarah club so don’t be shy to bring some cash to buy raffle tickets & food. There is a new log to be won, along with lots of other prizes. The log can be viewed on the OBMC or Wallarah facebook pages.

If you have no plans for this Sunday, come on up & cheer on the OB team.

The next OBMC club round is the February contest on Sunday 25th. This will be followed by the postponed January comp on Sunday, 4th March.

Sals Surf School have several girls progressing through the school who have joined us this year, so at the end of the first round each comp we will be running an unofficial heat to give the girls some practice under contest conditions.

Our annual general meeting is to be held in the Ettalong Bowling Club at 2pm on Sunday, 18th February. Everyone is welcome, so come & nominate for a committee position.

Craig Coulton.
