"…It was wonderful to see so many Slider's there paying their respects…Again I feel proud to be a 'Bream Bay Slider' - what a fantastic group of people - so caring, so giving, so supportive of one another" Robyn, PHOTO: Robyn
BBS members Rog and Micro went to The Alley Fish Fry in Aussie with Matt from the Surfline Factory, We had a blast, Johnny you would have loved the Tom Wegener wooden boards, We were like 'Kids in a candy store' as Matt said, Micro*

Hi All, Peter Malatios has sent us an email asking us to share it with all the BBS. This coming Saturday 7th of March at 3.00 pm, at Orewa by the Surf Club we will remember one of the first members of the BBS club, Ron Malatios. Unfortunately, I will be in Australia and unable to attend but it will be great for some of the Sliders who knew Ron to be there. Take your surfboards as there will be a paddle out to remember Ron. This will be a very special thing to be part of. Please read Peter’s email as below and if you have any questions, please contact him on the numbers he has provided. By the way, some of you may not be aware that Peter screen prints all ours BBS T-shirts and has supported the Club from the beginning as did Ron. Roger.
