AJSBA Members Bulletin 28th June 2012
New Licence Structure
Following our recent announcements of forthcoming reforms to many aspects of the sport, we have now released the new Licence structures. We hope this will streamline the licensing and allow for everyone in the Jet Ski Industry to participate in the sport and enjoy the benefits of belonging to the Industry Association.
From July 1st Race Numbers will no longer be held for those with expired licences. Please check your current status and contact us if you have any questions or are unsure of your current status.
We have a Rider profile page set up on our website. This is to give you an opportunity of letting all potential sponsors find you.
We encourage every competitor to submit some images and text for us to publish on your behalf.
This is open to every level and type of competition. Many sponsors are looking for the next up and coming rider to sign, so it’s never too early to make it known your serious!
Nominations for the following positions
The AJSBA has selected and approached some people, who have specific skills or areas of interest, to be part of the extended committee.
As the AJSBA now encompasses all facets of PWC ownership we call for expressions of interest from people who think that they have something the offer the association. Those selected will be called upon from time to time to provide background information and advice on their sphere of interest. So if you have an area you think will be useful e.g. Safety management, Recreation activities or even legal or business background please let us know and we will contact you to discuss your input to AJSBA.
How to help your Club
We’re all aware that the clubs are working through tough times whilst we rebuild our sport and get it back where it belongs. Running costs have increased and good volunteers are hard to find.
This is the time to be asking, what can I do to help my Club? A great place to start is by helping out on Event days.
You don’t have to race or even ride fast, you just need to enjoy the company of your fellow Jet Skiing mates and get out and enjoy a day together.
Attending club meetings is another great way. Many hands make light work and the more bright ideas being discussed at meetings the better.
Another idea is something the QPWC just had success with. A submission was made for a new Rescue Ski and this was thankfully granted. If anyone has any other ideas please let us know
Locate your local Club
Visit the AJSBA website for a list of all the affiliated clubs who run competitions in all disciplines of the sport across Australia. The club contacts are willing to help you out with any questions about how to get started or anything else you’d like to know.
