Firstly congratulations to all the paddlers that competed and volunteers that assisted at Nationals 2009.
We were extremely lucky this year to have Karmen Wallace from Tai Tonga 41 OCC who took on the heavy role as regional coordinator which involved many hours of hard work leading up to and during Nationals and is a highly regarded position within the region and at National level. We hope that next year another club will take the iniative to head this important role. On behalf of Hoe Tonga, thank you Karmen for your expertise and time you gave to assist us all.
