We’ve got your individual and team rankings under the cut!

Mavericks WaveWhile we were all at Mori Resort in Second Life enjoying our fun and sun, Real Life’s bravest pro-surfers were battling the waves in The Mavericks Surf Contest®, a half mile off the coast of Half Moon Bay, CA, USA.  During the contest the spectators found themselves inadvertantly becoming a part of the action when rogue waves swept them from the seawall as well as damaging some of the equipment and scaffolding being used by officials, causing the awards ceremonies to be moved to a nearby hotel. Read more about the incident on The Associated Press: here. Also congratulations to the winner Chris Bertish of South Africa, and much respect for all of the surfers who competed in those amazing conditions!

December 1st Election

It’s long after December 1st, yes I know, but with the season winding down and the holidays upon us we’ve all been so busy! The December 1st election sees Ashleigh Dickins (hey that’s me!), GiavannaMarie Melody and Sally LaSalle joining Abel Halderman and Desirae Beaumont on the board. Sally LaSalle had been serving as an interim director after Robin Mapp left the board in October, 2009; and prior to that had served two consecutive six month terms from June 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009. Ashleigh Dickins prior served a six month term from June 1, 2008 through December 1, 2008 and returns for another six month term. This is GiavannaMarie Melody’s first term on the board. In addition to Robin Mapp the Board also says “So Long (and thanks for all the fish!)” to Bonheur Chenaux and WickedV Carver. Thanks for the great work guys!

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!

December 2008 Election

December 1, 2008, we held our most recent election to fill 3 open director positions on the board. 94 members were eligible to vote, and 24 voted. The election was made easy by having 3 awesome candidates to vote on. The result was Sally LaSalle re-elected to an additional term as director, joined by Carenahh Kuu and Mick Lunasea. Sally has a long history of leadership and experience with the SLSA. Carenahh comes to us as a former SLSA board member, surf sim owner and SLSA judge. Mick is a surf instructor, coach, team captain and ranked competitor. All 3 will bring valuable assets of experience and expertise to their term as director on the board of the SLSA.

Stepping down this term are Ashleigh Dickins and Colleen Brennan. These dedicated directors have contributed so much to the SLSA, and we look forward to their continued involvement as advisors.

Our next election will be March 1 when the director positions filled by VW Sands and Tauri Tigerpaw will be up for election. Please be sure to vote – this is your organization!
