Around the Grounds.

So many waves of late its pretty hard to start with anywhere really. Especially if your memory flails you!
First up a big "all the best" to Mike Baker who is off to the world Bodysurfing champs in California at the end of the week.We hope Mike can get some results and put Nelson on the map!! Go Mikey Go!!

Local Glenduan Resident, Rory Dubienic is also another guy we should be wishing Au'Revoir as he heads to California also later this month for a 6 month exchange student stint based in Santa Barbara I am personally not sure of how much studying he will be getting done whilst stalking Dane Reynolds and the the rest of the crew.

I used to be a doubter of a "Swell Season" in Nelson but after 14 years residing here I now have to finally admit that perhaps we do get more consistent swell runs between June and October. It seems we are on an amazing run again of late with basically a 3 day on 4 day off roster between rideable waves and flat spells.

On the club side of things the new treasurer/secretary Trudie Pegg is a woman on a mission viciously raising sponsorship for the club and with a lot of local businesses putting up there hand the future looks bright. A run of t-shirts incorporating the sponsors logo's are on the planning table so if you know of anyone else keen to jump on board tell them to get in fast before they miss the boat.

Heres a list of those helping out so far.... Hogeys Surf, Moana Sup, Boulder Bank Electrical and Higgs Earthmoving....... with a couple more in the works it looks like we will be able to embark on a few projects over the next coming months including some more nice rocks in the carpark at snappers, a general tidy up of that area, a talk to the harbour master regarding some demo/reconstruction work on the cut and a couple of other cool ideas. Next club day/boardriderr comp will go down mid september and next meeting will be held at Graham Clarks place in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned cos Houston we have a problem!!!
