Rock ’n’ Roll 2019
The club’s next Rock ’n’ Roll will be held at Jimmy’s Beach (Hawks Nest) over Friday 29 March – Monday 1 April, 2019 based at Reflections Jimmy’s Beach Holiday Park, (Ph (02) 4997 0466 email: email@example.com) which offers a variety of powered and unpowered camping sites, cabins and studios. The holiday park will give NSWSKC members a 10% discount when you book. (Must mention this at the time of booking).
This location is adjacent to Jimmy’s Beach giving easy access to paddling on Port Stephens and the open sea. Club members need to book their own accommodation or camp site and we suggest booking earlier rather than later to ensure you don’t miss out.
Depending on conditions there may be trips out to Broughton Island or to the islands just outside Port Stephens, trips to Fingal Bay or more relaxing trips within Port Stephens that may even involve a coffee stop. A range of on the water and off water training sessions will also be on offer.
Rock’n’Roll is a great opportunity to improve your paddling skills, discover new paddling destinations, meet like-minded people and catch up with old friends

This event is run by volunteers who give their time to organise, manage the registration, run the beach marshaling, cook the BBQ, etc. A few volunteer positions have already been filled but we still need a lot more. If you are interested in helping with these tasks, please call Simon on 0412 022 792.
