FROM THE PRESIDENT – COOLUM BOARDRIDERS

Coolum Boardriders next scheduled round will be on Sunday the 10th of November. If we can organise permits we may run a makeup round for this months missed comp on Sunday the 27th of November. Stay tuned.

The second round of the Queensland Junior titles ran at Duranbah last weekend with Coolum Surfers all going well. Isabella Nichols again dominated the under 18 girls to take out the state title. Isabella is also in the state team for nationals and has also picked up a wildcard into the Quicksilver Roxy Pro trials next year. Jaleesa Vincent dominated the day in the under 16 girls convincingly winning the round, and placing second in the State Placings. Jaleesa will also represent Queensland at the Nationals. Kara Peterson and Amber Dodds finished second and third in the round with Amber finishing second in the state and Kara third. Zane Assink loved the crowds at Dbah and finished fifth in the round and Second in the under 12`s in the state. Ellia Smith surfed her heart out to finish with a second place in the under twelve girls, then with a nail biting finish she missed out a state title by 0.3 of a point. We think she should have been given an extra point just for that smile. A great effort from all our surfers who went down.

The Straddy Assault runs this weekend with our team all ready to give it a great shot. The Teams event runs on the Saturday with the pairs event on the Sunday. The contest is always a great weekend and with the best surfers from Noosa to Ballina competing the surfing is always red hot. We wish all the guys and girls the best.

The Be the influence Boardriders Battle will run on the 2nd and 3rd of November amd promises to be bigger than Ben Hur. With a over a hundred thousand dollars in prize money the event has rounds in each state finishing with the finals in Sydney. The contest has suveral different formats so it should be interesting. With all the major pros competing for their clubs, Parko, Fanning, Bede, Mitch Crews, Occy and a host of others the standard of surfing will be great. We will be having training on Tuesday the 29th to get the team used to the format.

Next Comittee meeting will be on Tuesday the 22nd at 7pm. All members and interested parties are encouraged to attend.

Finaly a huge shout out to Tim and the crew at Dominoes Pizza in Coolum. Tim and the Store have come on board as our major sponsor for the club for 2014. We cannot
thankĀ  Domioes enough as their sponsorship enables the club to compete at all teams comps both junior and senior helping to nuture some of the great surfers we have around Coolum.
