Southern Lakes Windriders - news updates, events and reminder

Just a quick reminder that we agreed at the AGM to re-establish our 'Incorporated' status, and so we need to have a special meeting to establish this. We need 12 people, so do please turn up, rumour is there may be some free bar snacks !!!
Monday 18th Nov. 2013. at Brazz Bar. Special inaugural meeting to discuss general business and update plans for the season and to become incorporated.
Other news...

Hope you didn't hit any logs out there on the water recently. Wakatipu was on flood alert for some time and the other lakes are all really high so there was an awful lot of driftwood in the water and not much rigging area. Most of the worst is over now, but remember if you're not used to these kind of conditions, its just like on the road, if you're likely to hit something... slow down. The mess to you and your board will be less. So if there's a big log looming ... be very skillful or put the brakes on.
