May 2017 – Technology has arrived! The MMBC has joined dozens of other boardrider clubs around Australia by adopting electronic judging!
The May comp saw the iPads in action when the SurfComp App was used live. Anyone with an iPhone (android system coming soon) can download the free App from the App Store and once logged in, can see live scores instantly, the current heat draw, heat times remaining, next round info, yearly pointscore progress, edit your own club membership details (phone, address), and no waiting around for the tallier to add up numbers!
Just ask a committee member for your personal log-in number at your next comp.
In the mean time, see what the ‘Surfcomp’ app is all about on uTube..
The future is here.
Welcome to the 2017 season of the Manly Mal Club. The year kicks off this Sunday the 5th February. Be at the beach at 7am sharp for registration. Cost this year is unchanged at $50 single membership, with discounted rates for families. Cost for each comp is $10 which includes the BBQ. We will have a safety briefing prior to the contest at the beach and hope to have the first heat in the water by about 7.30am.
As last year, we will order the club shirts after registration to ensure that we have correct sizing for all.
The usual stuff will be on such as the BBQ, along with soft drinks and a couple of beers later in the day.
Should the weather be dodgy, we may choose to set up at the shed just north of the Novotel. If you can’t see the tent, just keep an eye out for the club trailer surrounded by a group of suspicious looking surfers!
Looking forward to seeing you all there for another great season of longboarding.
