Haiti Earthquake Relief Appeal

The 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0  earthquake centred approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, striking at about 5pm  local time (21:53:10 UTC) on Tuesday, 12 January 2010. The International Red Cross estimated that about three million people were affected by the quake, and the Haitian Interior Minister believes that up to 200,000 have died as a result of the disaster, exceeding earlier Red Cross estimates of 45,000–50,000. This is a human tragedy of unimaginable proportions, if you can, please send some funds to assist with relief efforts.  Please check the URL carefully on any sites you donate.

Welcome New Directors!

On June 1, 2009, SLSA held an election for three open spots on the SLSA Board of Directors. Six candidates signed up for the election and 41 SLSA eligible voters participated in the vote. The newly elected directors are: WickedV Carver, Bonheur Chenaux and Robin Mapp. They replace retiring Sally LaSalle, Colleen Brennan and Robbin Ember on the Board, and join VW Sands and Abel Halderman for a full 6 month director SLSA Board term.

Congratulations and thanks!

SLSA welcomes new Directors!

September 1st was a scheduled election for 2 positions on the SLSA director board.  We had 3 great candidates all of whom are great contributors to the surf scene already.  82 members were eligible to vote in this election. 39 members votes and the results were that VW Sands and Tauri Tigerpaw were elected to office.   Congratulations to our two new directors 🙂 wishing you a big perfect waves and much jolification 🙂

Directors stepping down after there full term were Radical Twang and Milo Voss.  The membership of the SLSA owese both these guys a debt of gratitude, seeing the association safely through some trechorous waters includint eh introduction of Havok 4 system and a constiutional crisis in which the association was left with only 2 directors.   Well done guys and your deeds and efforts and love for the sport will long be remembered! 🙂
