Nationals

Well, today I head to OBX to get ready for this weekend's National Championships and World Cup Event #4

I'm happy to say that we have our permits, insurance, 4 qualifyed judges, a few volunteers....and perhaps even some SURF (I'm still not convinced by the reports yet, but I'm hope hope hoping....keep ur fingers crossed!)

If sunday looks to be much better than Saturday, we will run more heats on Sunday than on Sat....be prepared for that.
As it stands, it looks like we have about 9.5 hours of heats to run through over the 2 days, plus some big trick heats if possible, so its not too daunting of a task to move more heats to sunday.

If you are competing, please call my cell phone on thursday and friday to get more details as to where to meet, what time, etc. My number is 8O3.Two3eight.Zero432
If I dont answer, I will be leaving messages on my voicemail that will provide instructions.
We will have an informal meeting on thurs afternoon or friday morning before practice, and a more formal competitors meeting at a TBA location on friday evening.
Competition will begin Sat morning at either Frisco pier, frisco public access, or the old lighthouse site. First heat may start as early as 8am, or we may push the start time later depending on what the surf looks like its going to do.
Please bear with us, we want to surf the best conditions possible, so we're going to have to play it by ear and be ready to change things around if needbe. If you can't get ahold of me, I will be staying at the Falcon Hotel, you can find me there.

I just wrapped up all the sponsors for the event, and confirmed the prizes we will be awarding in addition to Trophies for 1st-4th place. Looks to be over $2000 dollars worth of quality prizes.

I hope most of all that we have a fun weekend with good surf and good vibes.
