A mid-season meeting to see where we're at and hopefully get some good suggestions to further improve the work we do for the club. As we didn't get a chance to organise a Xmas BBQ this will also double as a social gathering.

Some topics to be discussed:
- Jardines access issues
- Creighton working bee
- SLWRC mega event (GY downwinder?)
- Rat Point issues after fire
- Club gear (Thank you FX for donating some snow kiting gear! Wish you all the best in your travels)

Southern Lakes Windriders news December 2015

Hope you had a good Xmas and wishing you all the best for a Happy New Year and lots of fun adventures in 2016. Hope you’ve all been getting lots of sailing in. The water at last is really warming up.. so get on out there and have some fun. Couple of winges to start I’m afraid but bear with us… that’s one of the reasons we need a club, to protect kiting and windsurfing spots in the area. Better news later in the newsletter.

One Mile Sailing.
