Rob West Dunga Day 2018

Rob West Dunga Day 2018……

Sunny weather at a pristine location with some more than challenging surf condition’s is what awaited 35 plus people on the beach at Minnie Waters in February for the annual Rob West Dunga Day Rally.

After driving around for one hour plus trying to pick a spot that might be applicable for the whole day was the first challenge with us all returning to Minnie Main Beach to Surf Of the 2018 Rally.

Thrills & Spills describes the day in a nutshell with some more than impressive surfing from some & some horrific take off’s & wipe outs from others.

The swell at 7am was 3 foot plus building to 6 - 8 foot sets as the day went on as Cyclone Gita stirred the ocean.

Some of us had not surfed for 1 or 2 years & suffered the consequences, maybe not the right day to restart our surfing ambitions.

Maclean Variety Meats again supplied the tasty lunch for both days including the Disabled Surfers Hands On Day on Sunday which this Rally facilitates a Helper Base.

Fun in the Sun & no harm done to anyone wrapped up the day, as per usual winners are grinners.

Charlie O’sullivan took out both Original Shortboards & Old Mals in wearing the coveted Dress Jacket & Dylan Chisholm convincingly took out the Transitional event with two firsts on the day. Full results can be located on the Old Mal Australia website.

Only two pieces of Timber arrived & no one was keen for the teams Challenge.

The lovely Wooli Hotel / Motel was again the venue for the presso with great food, cold refreshments & a few tunes this year even the publican had a bash on his guitar.

Wombat Houghton was the winner of the contestant prize supplied by Minnie Waters Holiday Park.

Kaylee was the winner { Yet to be located } of the River lodge voucher for the Raffle organised by Joy West & Family annually.

Many thanks to all the above businesses for their continued support & assistance.

See you all at Minnie next year with a Modern Log Division added to the program….

“Keep Your Old Girl Wet”.
