Thursday 21th March at 7:30pm at Hawkins Arms, TR4 9HU.
The Hawkins Arms is in Zelah, just off the A30, just north of Chiverton roundabout.
As usual, the club pays for the drinks for the evening (provided nobody abuses this !) Please bring along your BKSA card with your KKC membership to get the free drinks (or we do have a list of current paid up members).
On the food side of things The Hawkins Arms will have it’s normal menu, plus these there £7.50 options:
Lee from Pasty Adventures has suggested he run some club coaching days, at £300 for a half day (12:00 to 17:00). Perhaps one for advanced jumping, unhooking and loops and another for more intermediate skills of toeside, backloop and pop. He would need the date to be pre-booked. Maza, Gwithian or The Bluff. Lee has said it’d make sense to pre-book 2 dates and that if neither have any wind, so the coaching doesn’t happen, there would be no fee.
“For demos I use a speaker system so that everyone can hear me talking through manoeuvres as I do them, then people would hit the water before coming back in for feedback and the next demo.”
That way there is no limit on numbers, would also make great footage for a club video and pics as will give set areas for people to practise moves running in a loop to avoid collisions.
AOB / Any Other Business:
Matt Taylor, our current Vice-Chairman has a youth training idea.
Steve Townsend has asked if we can “Please please please get a wind meter at Maza that works -the Ocean High cam/meter was superb, but hasnt been functioning for the best part of a year. Any ideas welcome – maybe even consider a camera upgrade – I would certainly be happy to contribute to a quality and reliable cam/anemometer, if the club can’t cover it.”
Elect the Club Admin and Officers for the next year.
