Here are the results from contest #7. 2013 Contest 7 (1).doc
The 2013 season is done. Thank you SNC for a great time this year. The points have been updated so everyone will know how you finished for the year. Please check them because I have been known to make a mistake. :-) Jesse and I are planning an awesome banquet for you guys. It's a secret right now but the date is Feb. 15th. Clear your calendar for that date because you don't want to miss it. It's our ending the 2013 and beginning the 2014 season party!! We will send out more information once we get it all finalized. It's possible we'll have Mid Atlantic Regional Info by then also. So make you plans to go Folly Beach, SC in April 2014.
Until Feb.......keep surfing and we'll see you next year!!!
Saturday's contest is a make up contest. If you entered the halloween event you won't need to enter again. If you want to surf this weekend and you didn't enter the halloween contest you'll need to send in your entry.
See you Saturday at Hamlet Ave in Carolina Beach!
We have set the dates for the 2014 season. Print it and put it on the fridge so you can make your plans now! 2014 snc calendar (1).doc
Also.....as of today 10/22/13 the Halloween contest is on! As always, we'll be watching the weather and in this case, Mary Lee as well.
I think I’m rested up now. Easterns was a blast! It was a long 10 days to be away from home but Sandy, Jesse, and I loved it! If you missed it I hope you’ll plan to make it next year. It’s my most favorite time of year. I like it more than Christmas! I want to thank everyone who came to surf, support, and hang out with us. We by far had the most members from our district there at one time. I took a picture of the people lined up together on the beach to support the competitor in the water (Darsha I think it was) and they wouldn’t all fit in the picture. That is so awesome to see us all supporting each other. The other districts noticed it too. They mentioned to Jesse and I that we had a lot of member support, so thank you all for that! We are proud of you and it feels good to have other districts notice us. I’m already looking at housing for next year so it’s not too early to let me know if you want in the SNC house. It’s going to be back at Jennette’s Pier and will be Sept 14th -20th 2014. I’m hoping to get ocean front again because it’s nice to be that close to the contest site. Okay…..I could go on and on about how much fun Easterns is but I won’t. I’ll just say that I hope you all make plans to go next year!
This year we had great results. Tyler Faulkner was crowned the Open Shortboard and the Jr. Men Shortboard Champion!!!! He also had the highest wave of the contest with a 9.33 scoring wave!!
Jo Pickett was crowned the Ladies Longboard Champion, Craig Newkirk got 4th in Grandmasters, Johnny Langone was 4th in Masters Longboard, Darsha Pigford got 3rd in Jr. Women Shortboard, Daniel Sacchi was 4th in Sr. Men and Kat Neff got 4th in Girls Shortboard. We had others in the contest and other finalists results as well……for all the results and even a replay of the live video go to surfesa.org. The results are posted on the Easterns page and the live video is running for you to review. I definitely recommend watching it. There’s some great surfing in this video and Tyler Faulkner will amaze you!
Jesse and I are very proud of all of you!!! I didn’t list all the results here so go check it out!
SNC will also have new Allstars representing us this year. Gabe Morvil, Julia Eckel, Kat Neff, Jo Pickett, and Daniel Sacchi will be the SNC Allstars for the 2014 season. Coach Pat chose these guys to represent us for the 2014 season. If you’re interested in becoming an Allstar you have to let Jesse and I know and we’ll speak with you about it.
Our next contest is the 3rd ? Annual Halloween contest! I think it’s the 3rd? Maybe 4th? Anyway, it’s the Halloween contest and it’s Oct 26th in Carolina Beach. Once I have confirmation from the town on the location I’ll let you know. You don’t have to be a member for this one either so invite your friends. This is a member favorite so pick out your costumes and then pray for good weather!!
See you in October!
The Oysterfest/Crocker event is going to be held at Ocean Isle on Sept. 7th and 8th. Open Shortboard division will be a cash prize event. Amount depends on number of entries. Download your entry form here. OYSTERFEST CROCKER ENTRY FORM.xls
Bring your friends. This one is open to anyone. We want to get more exposure for the ESA! Entry deadline is Sept 4th.
Our next contest is August 4th at Hamlet Ave in Carolina Beach. This was scheduled to be our Clash of the Carolina's weekend but now will be just SNC at Hamlet Ave. Sunday August 4th is the contest and the deadline to enter is Wed July 31st.
CHECK THE FACEBOOK PAGE SUNDAY MORNING FOR UPDATES!!
We have combined the Chris Crocker event with our Oysterfest event. This is so that everyone can compete in the Oneil Pro Am in Wrightsville Beach if you want to. We will be making other plans for our September Oysterfest to include the Chris Crocker fund raiser contest. So, go send your entry form in for the Oneil contest. The deadline is next Monday July 8th! Send in your entry or take it to Sweetwater Surf Shop.
Also our Clash of the Carolina’s contest has been changed. CNC District has asked us if we would be okay with not doing that contest this year. They don’t want to drive to Topsail and have a two day event. I of course told them that we were fine with that and we’ll just have our contest in Carolina Beach like normal. I’ll be sending more info to remind you of that when the date gets closer but there will be no Clash of the Carolina’s in Topsail this year. We will be in Carolina Beach on Aug 4th instead, (pending our permit).
Also the Earth and Surf Fest is this coming up weekend. If you’re not going out of town for the 4th come on out and compete in the Earth and Surf Fest. It’s a really fun contest!
