Largs a success, now onto Whyalla!

We had an awesome turnout for the Sign Up Day at Largs last weekend and while the wind was lack lustre, the steaks and sausages were demolished in fine style…

Croc and Tino are heading up to Whyalla for this weekend to catch up with a few kiters in the northern districts and hopefully the breeze comes in as well as the forecasts look (at this stage…!).

Thanks  to everyone who made it to Largs; it was a great catch up and also good to see plenty of the 2010 gear on display.

If you missed it, a reminder that the membership expires on October 1 so not long to renew. We’ve already been warned that the authorities are going to be hot onto those kiters not wearing the appropriate tags and safety gear. We’ve got plenty of tags in stock so you’ll get them before the old tags expire if you’re quick to lodge your membership form.

For those of you looking to renew your membership, you can download it from this website under the “Memberships” page. http://www.saksa.com.au/?page_id=3

Catch you on the water soon!

We look forward to another great year of kiting and the associated social events that go with it – get involved and together we can make SA kiting even better !

On a side note we had Marty Sellars from the Windsurfing Association come down to the AGM last night and present SAKSA with a thankyou for their loan of a pa system for the windsurfing state titles. The two associations working together is a great sign for the future and we thank Marty for making the effort to join us last night.

Events reminders- keep an eye out for these beauties coming up….
