22 Nov Welcome To 2016
Welcome to 2016
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce your committee for the year:
President: Paul Fletcher
Vice President: Matty Wright
Secretary: Andy Brown
Treasurer: Brian Tucker
We have an excellent mix of experience, enthusiasm and are all looking forward to some great events in 2016 and having a heap of fun.
It is our intention to schedule 10 club comps for the year on the 3rd Saturday of each month unless there is a clash with another event, in this case as much notice as we can will be given.
Any updates and information will be posted on our website www.soullongboardclub.com.au and on our club Facebook page “SOUL Longboarders”
The first few comps for the year are:
February Saturday 20th
March Saturday 19th
April Saturday 16th
May Saturday 21st
We will be running junior expression sessions for the Febuary, March and April comps. This is a great way of getting the younger juniors in the water having fun with parental assistance. This is not longboard specific.
Free Snag and can of drink for all registered participants on the day.
The Club is also introducing a special Junior(under 18) only membership for children with non surfing parents. A parent or guardian must be present. Membership forms will be available at each comp day or by request.
In April we will also be running a Junior Development/Coaching session for already developing young surfers in conjunction with Surf Sessions.
Victorian State Longboard Titles
Round 1: April 30th & May 1st

This is the annual competition between SOUL and Maladjusted.
This year it our turn to travel to S.A to defend the title we won last year. We require a minimum of 16 surfers, ideally 20 for this event. It is to be held on Saturday 12th of March.
We plan to travel over on the Friday, surf on Saturday and then head home at your leisure.

This a great event and would love to see it well attended, a great part of South Australia with plenty to do and see for all family members, this is not just a boys weekend away.
ILC Fundraising BBQ
We have got a spot for a BBQ at the Wallington Faggs Mitre 10 on Sunday Feb 7. Funds raised will go toward subsidizing the fuel costs for those travelling to the ILC. We will be looking for helpers on the day so if you can spare an hour or 2 to assist it will be greatly appreciated. Give Fletch a call 0419 874 003.
