Hawke’s Bay Boardriders Club Contest
Hawke’s Bay Boardriders Club runs an annual contest comprised of four club day competitions for both members and non-members. The quarterly competitions determine the club rankings and combined form the annual contest results. Individual contest rankings exist for Masters, Opens, Under 18’s, Under 16’s, U14s, U12’s and Learners. Check out the current club rankings here.
The competitions are a great way for officials to get experience under the guidance of a contest director and head judge, and we always welcome volunteers to get involved. We realise it’s not only important to get the correct result, but also to judge consistently so that our competitors can gauge their improvement. Generally good judging equals a good contest.
We’ll be selective on conditions however agree it’s important the opportunities for competitions to run is paramount to build competitors experience. We’ll be more selective for specialty competitions and for team and squad selections.
We aim to complete our competitions in one day and will generally run Sundays if safe conditions allow. It’s important people register online for contests so we can communicate with competitors and collect information for health and safety purposes, as well as determine draws in advance of competition day. Early registration also ensures you get to compete otherwise there may not be room in the draw to accommodate late entries on the day of competition. A prize giving will be held at the end of each event and a final prize giving held at the end of the last event for the year on 20/27th November 2021 at Three Wise Birds at 5pm.
