Thanks Dave for the info,

Have a bum bag and a vest , steamer is only three two I think but will have to do and booties. Will be all around the island for three months in a motor home. Love catching waves plus taking a 14 footer as well for longer paddles. Pretty keen on the Eaglehawk neck area after following your posts and your favourite river mouth. So many places to paddle there have done six trips in the past 10 years though only supped the last couple. On the S.O.T on the 16th Sept probably have the first couple of weeks up north or east coast then head your way hopefully it might warm up a bit. I will keep up with Tassie talk as to any events if I am in the area. Thanks again mate.

Looking for a hit out before the 50th Surf Safari, well this is it, fun flatwater 12k paddle and be back in time to hit the Hobart show with the kids.

I am a Hobart native, transported to the mainland in 1969 as a 7 year old (for crimes I am not sure of), we visited in maybe 2002 with the wife, 8 year old and 4 year old daughters.
Coincidently, we were in Hobart for The Show.
It was fantastic, after several really disappointing trips to the Melbourne Show, it was like a big country town show.
Great stuff on display, great rides for the girls, and unless (and it is likely) my brain is playing tricks on me, the Holden trick driver squad thingy in the main arena.
Had a ball.
Last Show I have attended.
I hope it has retained the charm.....

Bit like most things now Nozza, it's more about making money so it can survive as a lot of the shows no longer exist down here, it's mostly expensive show bags and rides these days, but there's still a couple of really good little country shows down here.

A dedicated crew of SUPers enjoyed the delights of Carlton River this morning in almost perfect conditions, some there for the racing, while others enjoyed a peaceful paddle. No surprises when Mat took off like a rat up a drain pipe but Axel wasn't far behind him, then followed Mick & Dave in a close tussle for 3rd until the turning point, followed on by Lee and Eric, Sam headed off on the shorter course to be joined by John (a late starter yet to be confirmed by witnesses).

It was a small, but intrepid crew that headed into the "Valley of Love" this morning for the Derwent Canoe Club EOFY paddle, conditions didn't look to bad, but at the race briefing competitors were informed that hydro had just opened the dam and instead of the usual 2000MGL river flow it had increased to 15000MGL, this was going to make the upriver section very tough and SUPers elected to take on the shorter 5k course. The start was pretty subdue with the guys not wanting to fall in, taking awhile to get into their rhythm and warm the muscles, but once done Mat Steele was off and not to be headed again, Ben Stockwin held a small lead over Dave Smith all the way to the bridge and turning mark and then these 2 traded places several times over the next 2km. Dave make the most of what downwind conditions there were towards the finish and finished just in front of Ben for the 5k, Mat was on fire and elected to continue on and complete the 10k as well !!
Big thanks to all the crew from the Derwent Canoe Club for a well run event.

Southern Tas SUP Club
We think the time is right for a club and would like to put the call out for interested persons who would be keen to form or join a club. The purpose would be to organise social group paddles exploring different waterways & friendly competitions around Southern Tas. TassieSUP would be willing to help and promote a club. Is there anyone interested in kicking this off ?

Ok, there has been a great response so far, but you need members to make a club, so now is the time to sign up. Fill in the attached membership form and send it back before September 30 and as well as securing a 14 month membership instead of the standard 12 month membership you will go in the draw to win a new Carbon fibre Kahana paddled valued at $485. If you can't use a membership why not show your support with a t shirt ?

Membership response has been very impressive, but we have a little way to go to cover the clubs Incorporation and affiliation fees and keep "big brother" happy. Those that sign up now go into the draw for a paddle valued at $485 as well you will receive 14 months membership for the price of 12 months.
Our 1st get together is planed and this will be followed by a regular social paddle each month as well there will be a Surf Series over the warmer months.

Membership is still growing, but time is running out if you want to go in the draw for a new Carbon Fibre paddle. The Huon River paddle is on for 22/9 and The Carlton River paddle is penciled in for 20/10, with monthly paddles to follow at various locations + the Surf Series to run over the summer months.

1st paddle for our Club members today.
As a nasty front passed through with freezing rain and a crazy headwind just before hitting the water there were mumblings from the crew about why they were here, but Dave reassured them that is was just passing and the clouds would part soon. Holley & Lionel must have taken some note of that prediction and decided a swim in the pristine Huon River would be go as we set off. After that it was and easy 8k current assisted cruise under Sunny sky's and the rain didn't fall again until we were off the water ready for those ciders at Willie Smiths. Don't forget next paddle on 20/10.

5 Mile Beach to Dodges Ferry Paddle 20/10
With the forecast strong Westerly winds we have amended our planned Carlton River Paddle and will now downwind paddle from 5 Mile Beach to Dodges Ferry, starting at 5 Mile Beach around 12.30 or those that need to car shuffle meet at Dodges School at 12.00. If you haven't done any Downwinding before this is a good safer introduction as it is shallow water and close to shore, also perfect for those Wind Wing SUPers.
To get to 5 Mile Beach, take the 1st right past the Airport into Pittwater Rd and then the 2nd left into 5 Mile Rd.
