Hey all members and friends of SUPVIC – a window of opportunity has opened up and we have JUMPED right through it.

It’s a bit short notice but we (your club committee, through the hard work of our very own Super-Damo) will be running a SURF EVENT on Sunday 30th August on the Mornington Peninsula. Precise venue and time will be confirmed closer to the day but for the meantime please put a placeholder in your diaries (we have the following Sunday 6th September available as a fallback).

This will be a FUN and FRIENDLY comp for SUP surfers of ALL ages, levels and shoe sizes. Emphasis on participation and good times, no sheep stations involved. There may even be sausages. Put it in your diaries, more details to come very soon.

Jean Ringrose took out overall Women’s Over 40s Champion

Jean Ringrose really proved that hard work and training really pays off, winning the overall Over 40s Women’s title. A fantastic effort from Jean, and clearly the training as part of the SUP VIC HMB Training Group has paid off dividends. In the individual divisions: In the 1000m Jean won the silver in the women’s 1000m. I understand the woman who beat her is from NZ so that makes Jean fastest in Oz. Also, Jean took the Over 40s title. The rest of the team set very quick times in their respective finals, but were all just aside the medals. In the 200m Wow – Jean won Over 40 Women 200m. Missed out on winning Women’s Open by just 0.11 sec. Among the Men, Victoria’s own Grant Hardiman finished 4th, Steve Ferguson got 6th and Simon Albery 9th. In the Men’s Veterans, Chris Clarke finished 4th. And in the 5km race Jean came second overall and first in Over 40s. Tiga Gilbert came in 7th. In the Men’s, Grant Hardiman came 3rd, Simon Albury came 5th and Steve Ferguson 9th. In the Men’s Over 40s, Chris Clarke came 8th. A fantastic effort from the Victorians, and thanks to AuSUP for running another great event.

N1SCO Sprint Evening – a success

What a fun way to start off the season with the help from JB of Naish and Warwick of RPS. The distance was around 280 metres, give or take with lots of bumps and wind. We had 26 participants with lots of onlookers as well. Over 20 people enjoyed a great dinner to farewell the Victorians who will represent the state in the up and coming Nationals next week. Keep a look out for the next Twilight event. Listed below are the participants best time, Steve was the fastest by 1 second and Michael had the most goes – clocking up 6 goes.

Notice of Annual General Meeting

A date for SUP VIC’s Annual General Meeting has been set for Sunday 25th May, 2014. The location and time are to be confirmed, however, we will be seeking access to our usual AGM venue – upstairs at Hobsons Restaurant in Sandringham. As per the club’s charter, we will be calling for nominations to serve as general committee members as well as office bearers (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary). With a number of committee members and office bearers electing stand down at this time, we are very much in need of new volunteers to nominate. In particular, we will be seeking a new president, vice president and treasurer at this stage. In recent times we have seen our sister club Bass SUP disband largely on account of the lack of club members willing to put in a little time to help out. It would be a terrible shame to see SUP VIC suffer the same fate. If you have the time, I hope you might consider nominating for the SUP VIC committee.
