On behalf of Surf Life Saving NSW I would like to extend a warm welcome to the 2019 Envirobank NSW Country Surf Life Saving Championships, one of the major events on the NSW surf sports calendar and a highlight in every country competitor’s season.
I think it is fair to say that it promises to be a sensational weekend of racing for our junior,masters, and open age competitors with a broad range of events including beach, water, and surfboats to be contested throughout the
two competition days.
Organising a competition on this scale is not an easy challenge and it requires the goodwill of the membership to make it happen.
Fortunately Cudgen Headland SLSC is blessed with outstanding leaders and to club president Adam Mills and the organising committee we thank you for your efforts during the long build up to the event.
Our thanks must also go to Tweed Shire Council for their enthusiastic support of the event without which delivering an event on this scale would be next to impossible.
To Mayor Katie Milne and the entire team we certainly appreciate your hard work and continued support. It is refreshing to see a positive relationship between surf clubs and their local council to promote not only our core
lifesaving activities but also our sporting events which are an economic boon for the area.
I would like to acknowledge our naming rights partner Envirobank who do incredible work in the environmental sector.
This is second year of the partnership and we remain grateful for the generosity and support of our country surf lifesavers.
Finally good luck to all competitors, coaches, and officials in the competition, and I wish you a wonderful weekend.
