Plans for 2015
Who can jump the highest ?
We’ve voted to buy 5 club Woo tracker devices (thankyou to Lee “Pasty” for the idea).
There will be one with the beach beach rep at the main locations:
- Par & St Austell,
- Maza & The Bluff,
- Daymer Bay
At the next AGM the highest jump (by a KKC member) at each of the locations will get a £50 voucher for surf gear and the highest overall jump £100.
The vouchers will be valid at the 3 main shops in Cornwall that the meeting felt do the most for the KKC. Not least of all because they sell the Bluff passes for the club:
- Down The Line, Hayle ( Map, TR27 4EA)
- Lodey Sails, Marazion ( Map, TR20 9TT)
- Westcountry Watersports, Truro ( Map, TR1 2EG)
Hopefully, our KKC Facebook page will have a year of people posting their jump attempts !
Who can create the best 90 second Cornwall Kitesurfing Video?
We voted to buy 5 of the new cheap (circa £100 each) GoPro cameras.
These will again be with the beach rep’s.
At next years AGM we will show anybodies Corwall Kitesurfing video, max 90 seconds and vote on the top 5.
You can also enter clips from your own GoPro or other video device.
Again, open to all KKC members & hopefully, our KKC Facebook page will have a year of people posting the videos.
Watergate Legend of the Bay
This event is back !
It’ll be this spring over the weekend of April 18th & 19th.
The format remains the same as last time one day kite, one day SUP.
Competitors can enter individual competitions or should they wish enter both. The Individuals with the highest combined scores will be crowned Legend of the Bay.
Divisions will be Open Men and Open Women. Individuals wishing to enter must be members of either BKSA or BSUPA to enter competition.
Any KKC member, by producing their BKSA card that shows they are a KKC member will get £10 off their entry fee.
Wind (&other weather) Feed for Marazion
We voted to contribute up to £300 of club funds towards a wind and other weather info station on the top of Lodey Sails, so that we can on-line see what the conditions are like down there.
KKC Holiday ?
There was the suggestion of a club organised holiday to perhaps The Canary Islands or the Scilies. The discussion suggested this could be a challenge, but perhaps one or several club members will be able to talk to a travel operator or Lee “Pasty” who organises coaching trips, to see what can be done.
