Well here it is TAS booger children, the announcement you have all been so patiently awaiting…
It’s time to wax up the booger, lid, sponge, biscuit or whatever you like to call it and take to the air and to the tube with a vengeance, in your best prone and/or DK style on Saturday 15th – Sunday 16th September for the 2012 BAT State Titles and Senior Men’s Reunion.
The theme this year is to truly celebrate bodyboarding - past, present and future and with prizes and festivities galore we expect a decent turnout. So pencil those dates in folks as it’s not far away now. And it’s not just for the pros people, but the bodyboarding community at large – this is a social event where riders of all abilities are welcome to get amongst the action and support our great sport.
Proudly supported by a list of sponsors longer than a coiled leash, this is one event not to be missed by any seriously addicted bodyboarding nut from the Apple Isle. And that includes our proud senior men from Tasmania! The over 23’s will not only turn it on for all concerned in the water this year, but also on the dance floor of the Alley Cat on the Saturday night as special guests “The Sin & Tonics” fronted by legendary Seniors charger Dave “Edo” Edmonson rockabilly punk their minds and flippered-feet into oblivion.
Meeting at Goats Bluff lookout 7am sharp on the Saturday, a decision will be made based on conditions to select the best waves for Day 1 and to either hit the punchy a-frames of South Arm peninsula spots like Rebounds, Wedge or RSLs or to take the travelling roadshow east to the Tasman Peninsula’s Eaglehawk Neck or Roaring Beach.
With entry (including your comp tee-shirt, membership to BAT and insurance) at a flat $60 it’s a bargain and one weekend you will be sure not to forget. We will be giving stuff away too and have a crew at the ready to film the proceedings as well. Not only that but the serious punters can also qualify for Nationals being held on the NSW south coast at Kiama in the last week of November –more on that later. So what are you waiting for? Download your entry form now and get cracking on it like 6ft set.
