With the Presidential race months away, we are focusing on the election that will really make a difference for us all in the Charlotte area. Our chapter will be holding an election for 4 important executive committee positions. To effectively run our chapter, we look to bring new people into these leadership roles every 2 years. This enables the chapter to remain fresh with new ideas, style and excitement. At our February meeting, held at Wallerbears Surf & Skate shop, Feb 25th, 7 PM, we will elect a new Chair, Treasurer, Secretary & Community Outreach Coordinator. If you are interested in running for one of these, you can check out position descriptions here. Anyone nominated for a position, must be a member in good standing.
The 1st Saturday in December, chapter members, activists and enthusiasts descend on Triple C Brewing for our chapter’s annual year end party. This allows us to celebrate all of the great accomplishments throughout the year, get ready for the new year as well as engage new friends and members to become a part of this great chapter and organization. Building on last years success, we will once again have Charlotte’s best beers flowing, live music, a raffle featuring items from The Carolina Panthers, Sea Life and the Surfrider Foundation, just to name a few. Also this year, your ticket gets you into the oyster roast (bbq or shrimp for those that don’t like oysters). More details to come, however get your ticket now by clicking the button to the right. Your fully tax deductible donation of $20 gets you the oyster roast, your 1st beer as well as raffle ticket. Tickets are also available at the Triple C all month as well day of.

It’s hard to believe it’s September already! School is back in session, the summer crowds in the lineup have dwindled and we are all fixated on the surf forecasts eyeing the latest swell to develop. This time also allows us to celebrate our coasts, giving back to what has given us so much. This year we are marking the 30th annual International Coastal Cleanup Day with our Lake Wylie lake sweep. Join us at McDowell Nature Preserve on Saturday, September 19th, from 930 AM to Noon. We will be meeting down by the lakefront, where the Kingfisher trail starts. Everything you need is supplied (buckets, gloves, pickers) and we ask that you help us keep this a plastic free event and bring your reusable water bottle if needed.
