AGENDA (let us know if you have agenda suggestions)

    • Denzil Williams & Paul Frost.
  • Latest BKSA figures are 148 paid up KKC members (145 at the 2018 AGM)
  • Area Rep Updates (including Bluff update):
    • Par & surrounding area
    • Marazion, Bluff (aka Hayle) & up to Godrevy
      • Current Bluff passes expire end of March. 2019 to 2020 passes and parking permits will be available from Down the Line & Lodeys from Monday the 25th.

    • Watergate
    • Daymer Bay.
  • Event Updates
  • General Club Updates
  • Club equipment tally. Please bring along any club gear eg The Woo’s.
  • Accounts Update
    • Any ideas on how best to spend this, or leave it ticking along as usual?
    • KKC match (with a cap?) bidding on lost board found at Perranporth, where the money will go to the RNLI?
    • A thank you something to Ian Butt who takes kitesurfing photos of so many in the club.
  • Woo prizes (highest jump for each area & overall highest)
  • Do we carry on with the training subsidy system in place ?
    • 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.”
