North Coast Boardriders Club Inc.
Presidents Report for 2019
North Coast Boardriders has undergone somewhat of a transformation in 2019. Building off a strong 2018, the core group of dedicated committee members and volunteers have together developed and implemented many systems and procedures which will continue to benefit NCB in the years to come.
We completed another successful ladder competition series. The cash prize and free bbq incentives appear to be working with consistent turnouts throughout the year. New equipment purchased for the club such as the tents and bbq are working well, further streamlining these events. These events continue to become easier as people become familiarized with what is required.
The Polar Bear contest was again another huge success with equal prize money able to be continued for both Open mens and Womens divisions and new sponsors again coming on board. Conditions were favorable and the decision to sub-contract out the catering for the competition was generally acknowledged as very successful and a huge reliever of stress over the weekend.
We have managed to put together from donations a comprehensive first aid grab bag and AED for the club following the medical event which resulted in the death of a visiting surfer earlier in the year, work to permanently house the AED at Sandy Bay is on-going.
Regular training of young club members has proven extremely effective with exceptional results from our young competitive surfers in multiple events representing NCB throughout the year.
We have travelled as a club to various competitive events, and completed a planting day at Sandy Bay.
The committee has struggled to keep up with the day to day running of the club with often only the minimum required numbers to maintain a quorum at committee meetings and on several occasions the quorum not being achieved at all. We have also not substantially furthered the development of our strategic plan. This should be a major focus for NCB in 2020.
We are fortunate that the majority of the committee including myself have agreed to remain on-board for next year, however, I believe we need to further spread the working load of this volunteer club and as such the committee has recommended multiple personal additions for 2020.
Although we have had some struggles in 2019, we have also had a successful year in terms of our online presence on social media, our website development, representative surfing achievements as previously outlined and implementing the systems and procedures we need to be successful. We have also managed to increase the club membership to 131 members for 2019.
So to our 2019 committee congratulations on all your hard work and success this year. I look forward to working with you and welcoming the new committee members for this upcoming year and continuing our work towards striving to make NCB the best boardriders club in NZ!
