Yes, it was good. Gabs has already won one. It would seem very wrong if JJF never won a Pipe Masters

Windansea Club (organisers of the long running Pa and Ma Bendall comp) on the Sunshine Coast has won a court battle against protestors of it's council approved clubhouse.


Interesting reading here. The two main protagonists aren't even local residents but they suckered in a bunch of others to go along with them. Estimated costs are somewhere close to a quarter of a million bucks.

Most of the Club's costs including solicitors and barrister were volunteered.

How's the comment, "The Club's facebook site indicates consumption of alcohol is a large part of the Club's culture".
Apparently didn't go down too well with the Court.

They're a responsible mob.
Anyway, the Caloundra Mal Club is a party to the whole thing. Some of the Windansea members are also mal club members.

So we get to use it too.
The original proposal before council only drew one or two protests, so I'm guessing they suckered others into going along with it after the original approval.

Know a few people with houses along that stretch.
One of them is a massive cnut. Threw me out of his house because I corrected his pronunciation of anemone.

This is classic stuff. You must have some very pedantic friends.

Kelly just posted a 20 second clip on instagram of John John doing the most amazing turn on a pretty sizey wave. It’s simply a thing of beauty but also savage. I’ve watched it about a dozen times.

Great. Now I'm imagining BA's majestic snow-capped erection, upon which scores of brave men have perished
