BENDALONG - UPDATE - This Friday to Sunday


URGENT -  Please TEXT Danga on 0408463714 if you are joining us for the Bendalong Weekend 22nd to 24th November 2019. 

We have 25 confirmed current members.  Past members are always welcome to join us.

If you don’t confirm your attendance you will have to take your own food to cook as we will only be buying enough food for Breakfast and Dinner for those confirmed.  Please note the club don’t cater for special diets.  

You will have to look after yourself for lunch each day, so pack some food for lunch as we are not sure if the fire damaged shop is open again.

Some have already booked cabins but we will be setting up a campsite in the NE Corner of the Caravan Park on the Friday afternoon.

We will ask you to pay a small amount towards the food once we do the number so bring some cash or netbank, in addition to camping fees.

We have also back ordered additional T-Shirts in missing sizes XL, L and M and 14.   We will be handing those out to members at the Bendalong Weekend.

Secretary/Treasures Report 2019

Interim Teasuers Report

At this date the accounts for the season have not been closed off for 2019 and I cannot provide the final accounts.

The current bank balance at this date is $4,277.12.  There are more T-Shirts on backorder so this will be reduced by about another $500 at least.

There are Jackets ($80 adults, $55 Juniors) and Caps ($25) for sale so income is yet to be realised.

The larges capital expenditure this season was 4 new trailers and insurance.  A more detailed report of income and expenditure will be provided at the AGM.

Secretary's report

The minutes from the last AGM are below.  Several Executive Committee meetings were held through out the year which resulted is a well coordinated seasons.   

The new point-score system is working seamlessly and cut back the time calculation of point-score results taken and has eliminated errors in adding up the point-score as it is all driven by final places. 

My thanks go to Hans Bendl (Public Officer) who again this season made another great effort - we cannot function without you Hans - thanks again.  Jeff Ryan has been unwell this year and it has made all of us appreciate how much work Jeff does each year as well.  Jeff's recovering so we hope to see Shaggy at Bendalong with us, if not at the presentation night.

I have observed many presidents since I joined 1983 but Fishy proved this season to be among the very best the Club has had and attended every competition and made a significant difference to the running of events, thanks Fishy.  

Don McCaw made an outstanding contribution as our Vice President and I can see him being a future President as he continues to make a significant contribution to the Club.  

Brett Hardy had his first season as Senior Contest Director foisted upon him as Troy Wood had a gap year.  Thanks Brett for your efforts. Hopefully you and Woody can make a big contribution in 2020.

The stand out contest directors for 2019 have been Russel Wallace and Greg McKee, I hope that you both stand again as Contest Directors for 2020 as we need all hands on deck on competition days. 

Finally to our Clean-Up Australia Day Mums - What a great effort.

Storeroom Clean-UP is on Thursday 21 November 2019

Hans and I are going to do a Storeroom Clean-UP on Thursday 21 November 2019.  Anyone who is around and wishes to help out please ring me on 0408463714 for the time.  Probably mid morning after an early surf.

Hi All,

We have revised the judging sheets and we need members with access to laser printers to print as many judging sheets as you can, hole punch them and provide a folder full if you can.

A little bit of printing, what ever you can do, assists in keeping us going each season.  Whether you can do 10 or a 100 or more your contribution is always appreciated.

If you wish to print them in colour there is also a colour judging sheet.  We are happy if members can print the colour judging sheets as well.

  • Bendalong Weekend of 22-24 November

Pointscore Results

For those of you who have done 5 competitions this year remember that 6 count so it is not too late to make a late charge on the Pointscore.  The Pointscore will not be published again this season to keep the final results under wraps.

Danga has observed that the long held club record for the most club championships is on the line this year.  Fishy equalled Drew Chandler (AKA Jelly) last year and to take that record outright this year.  It will be close as Chris McKay has won back to back Opens and has placed well in previous competitions this year.

Juniors is close as missed competitions play out.  Masters is down to 3 and the final competition will determine the results. Hans has all but secured the Dukes with the absence if the Ryan Brothers, Hans has run a muck.  In the Grommets it is really a close affair and all the Gloms should ensure they surf the last Pointscore Competition No.10  Weekend of 9-10 November.

If necessary we will move the final competition to the following weekend or to Bendalong to give everyone a chance to rack up 6 comps.
