Southern Lakes Windriders news

We had a great Open Day last week. Thanks for all the club helpers. We signed up 12 new members and introduced a whole heap of new people to the sport.. and were then rewarded with a very windy day at Glenorchy the next day for all the volunteers to have their fun.

This weekend. South Coast.
Forecast looking good at this stage for Sat and possibly Sun. Gavin is keen to help people out who maybe haven't been in the waves before. The hotel/backpackers at Colac Bay is a cheap friendly local place to stay. Anyone interested ring Gavin 021994139.
