Some of you make have known Chris, many of you did not. He was a great father to his children Brittney and Jake and to wife Amy, good friend to surfers he knew and did not know. If anyone needed help, he was there and usually with Jake in tow. Chris died unexpectedly last November and folks from Eastern Surf Association (our East Coast organization that handles major surf events out here) is putting together an event in Chris honor. http://www.esa-snc.com/
Here is what regional ESA director Amy Rose wrote:
I told ya!!! We didn’t want to go from now until August without a contest! J The dates came open and now we are hosting a hopefully annual event. July 14th and 15th we’re having the Chris Crocker
Memorial Event! Chris was such a big part of SNC and we want to honor
his memory with this contest. It’s NOT and ESA event however. There will
be NO points given. It’s just a fun event with lot’s of good things in
store. Rumor has it that there may be some awesome sponsors with lot’s
of prizes! There WILL be an air show! Make your plans to enter. I know
…..your next question is how do we enter? Well…..I’ve had a crazy week
(took a really hard 6 hour exam today)…so I’ve been a little swamped. It
is my hope to get the entries and info with announcements done by
Monday night at the latest. I can tell you that we will do shortboard
divisions. They will not be standard ESA ages however. We are having a
two day event and we have a lot of special divisions that we want to do.
There will be in addition to the air show division, a noseriding
division, (rules will be given later), and a vintage longboard division.
We are also having a Pro Longboard division. There’s going to be a
novice division as well. So bring the neighbors who have never surfed a
contest before. This is the time to surf against others who have never
competed before! As I said, I hope to have all the info done by Monday.
For now, just start planning to come!
We donated one of our boards to this event. ESA - Southern Region and Ocean Isle Beach Surf and Java http://oibsurfandjava.com/ are handling local raffle tickets.
1 for $5.00
3 for $10.00
8 for $20.00
OIB Surf and Java has the board and raffle tickets. Also at the event, folks can purchase tickets.
IF YOU WANT, you can use our PayPal account to buy tickets ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) Yo is my wife Adrienne. Give us your mailing address and we will return one side of the raffle ticket(s) to you and the others will go into the drawing.
Shipping: Jessie (OIB Surf and Java) will help ship at best rate he can get. So don't be timid about not getting this Fish.
