Get Ready to Be Blustered!

Thats right people, this week see's the arrival of a good old fashioned Northwesterly blast, like the ones you used to know "back in the day". Wall frames will shake, fire flue's will rattle and roof nails will tinkle and the moan of your eaves will leave you thinking there's a ghost clinging on to the side of your house.
Spring is classic for these blustery conditions, its how the seed is spread some say.
Daylight hours have finally toppled the nights so make the most of the coming early morning light before daylight savings kicks in.

Quotes of the Week: >>> "Can we use club funds to buy some waves?" >>>>> "Maybe we can set up floodlights at The Glen and certain people can apply for permanent residency in the carpark" >>>> " I couldnt be bothered checking it this morning" (code for 'I slept in') >>>>>>>>>> "Kahutara has been pumping lately, 'did you surf it for more than half n hour?', "no it was too cold'>>>> Last but not least....." I surfed raglan 8foot so Im just gonna drive round in my heated seat rover till the water warms up"....
