Canterbury Windsports Association

Canterbury Windsports Assn. September Update

Faecal contamination (raw sewage) warning in the Avon and Heathcote rivers and Estuary due to earthquake damage, Clean Up day postponed, Yoda Challenge, Club nite (includes Wanaka video), Freestyle clinics, and access issues...

Scott Park Launch Area ACCESS

Work, expected to take two years (pre-earthquake Sept 2010), has started on the Ferrymead Bridge, with contractor site access signs going up at the northern entrance to Scott Park, just below the bridge in the MPYC/MPBC car park. City Council Project Leader Peter Rivers says that the contractor requires access along the paper road beside the estuary to their site from the Northern entrance. So long as windsurfers do not block that access, they can continue to park and rig up at Scott park, although this doesn't preclude the contractor from restricting access at other times, but lets hope this is during the week.

CWA - Clean up

Sat 18 Sep 2010

Clean up the World event, which was scheduled for Sept 5, as we were about two weeks ahead of the Rest of the World, and the council. It's officially Sept 18-19, so we'll aim for that weekend too, maybe Saturday, or if wet and miserable then Sunday. To be confirmed in the online events calendar. http://www.cwa.org.nz/portal/index.php?option=com_redevent&view=eventlis...
