Sounds great
Timewise, first half of November or January might be better. End November is quite busy with pre-Christmas events

Have been preparing
a bit of an email for demitri
and getting things lined up whilst here, he then should be able to set date, which will then allow me to line the Midwest windfests
Weve 6 mths till the event
so plenty of time yet, I've had plenty of interest from brands and retailers plus crew wanting to attend
It has the makings of a great event if I say so myself

Sounds like an awesome event! I can see the city of Geralton erecting your statue in 10 years - 'To Cauncy, the Founding Father of Midwest Windfest'!

Great to see the positive reaction on SB Cauncy................now you need some traction.

6 months and counting.............just a suggestion but maybe consider posting a list of things you need a hand with and then people can volunteer?

A warm climate and strong seabreezes sounds bloody inviting right now!!!

I have gone soft since moving east. Poo stance is still coming along nicely in 12 to 14 knots.

Haven't used the 7m in 18 months.

I miss 40+ knot Geraldton sessions.

Hi Guys and Gals,
If you are thinking of coming, it would be really appreciated if you could register through the form in this link. We have no idea how many people are likely to attend so this will help scale our water safety, event structures, pricing and communications appropriately. No payment required yet. As the costs and any sponsorship's / grants clarify we will be able to finalise a per -rider cost recovery, and we will require this before the event. Any surplus will either be carried over to the following year, or donated to a suitable charity. A deficit will be picked up by Cauncy and me.

form.jotform.co/72544383815865

Cheers

Dave
