Just a reminder, if you have not filed a submission, would you please take the time to do this in favour of the existing proposed plan. The Coastal Pathway group have forced a special meeting this Monday which I will be attending with Allan Taylor from Groundswell to defend our position to retain the existing proposed plan.

Most of you are unaware, but I am currently sitting in Singapore airport once again. This time on my way to Civitavecchia, Italy for the RS:X Open Youth World Championships.

I have been drowning in homework since I arrived home from my last trip overseas in August, hence why I have been so slack with contacting everyone!
