As you maybe aware we at Surfing Victoria over recent years have been endeavouring to show our appreciation of those who in the 1950’s, 60’s and now 70’s were the surfers, administrators, officials and inaugural industry pioneers of our sport here in Victoria.
When we began the process of identification it was focused on the 50’s and 60’s and now we are moving into the 70’s. As someone we have identified as a member of this pioneering group of Victorian surfers we would like to invite you to come along and catch up with other like surfers and check out the 2019 Rip Curl Pro site. You will also get the chance to watch some of today’s elite Victorian surfers compete in a pre trials event that can ultimately lead to them winning the Surfing Victoria wild card into the 2019 Rip Curl Pro.
As with all such lists it is virtually impossible for us to identify everyone who should be at such gatherings and what I would like to do is ask you not only to come along yourself but at the same time ask round your peers of this era and invite along anyone else you think should have an opportunity to attend and catch up with old friends.
We will kick the day off at around 11.00am Monday 15thApril and go through to around 1.30 – 2.00pm or as long as you wish to stay. There are no real formalities, some food, tea and coffee will be provided.
When you arrive on site just ask security for directions to the Corporate Area, the building on the left, before the grandstands as you walk down towards Bells. If anyone needs assistance in traveling from the car park to the venue please let us know and we will arrange a pick up.
Look forward to seeing you there and hopefully continuing to build on the momentum of what we have been building over recent years.
