2008 Preston Beach Skim Contest Results

For the 2nd year running, the recently held Preston Skim Contest was a great success.

We had to cancel the contest on the Saturday due to wind and rain, so instead the older guys split the competitors into 3 groups and gave them a coaching session so the younger competitors could learn some new tricks.

Luckily Sunday was blessed with much better weather, and we managed to run the whole contest through in one day. We had about the same number of competitors as last year, with both familiar and new faces in the competitor line up.

Thanks to all the competitors who helped make this a fantastic event. Big thanks must go to the 3 judges (Rob, Chris and Graham) who did a great job!

Thanks must also go to the event organisers and sponsors: Sandskater, The Boathouse, Circle One and Perry Mason Solicitors. A special mention of thanks to Bob Brewis from the Community Partnership who liaised between the event organisers and Torbay Council.
