We are hosting a "Surfing Legends Long Lunch" at the Alex Surf Club on Friday, July 26.
Guest of Honour will be the late and great Michael Petersen's mum Joan. She has a million stories to tell.
Also confirmed on the panel of legends will be shapers Bob Cooper, and Nev Hyman, surf stalwart Hayden Kenny and film-maker Dick Hoole. We have a few more unconfirmed as well so stay tuned.
Joan has donated some incredibly collectible memorabilia including:
>> The original wetsuit worn by MP in the cover photo made famous in the movie Searching for Michael Petersen.
>> We also have the rights to produce two MP replica surfboards, specially shaped for The Board Meeting, as close to the originals as MP designed them as we can get. One will be the well-known MP Fangtail model, the other the "Morning of the Earth" model. We will be doing all the old-school things like gluing the blanks (no stringers in those days), hi-gloss finish, glassed on single fins and glass leg-rope eyes. Albe Falzon has generously also allowed us to use the Morning of the Earth logo on both boards. The boards will be shaped by Sunshine Coast shaper Mark Pridmore of MORE Surfboards. Mark is a massive MP fan and is generously donating his expertise to shape the boards for us.
>> A framed Searching for Michael Petersen poster.
>> A Morning of the Earth Limited Edition t-shirt.
>> 2 x Morning of the Earth framed posters autographed by MP and Albe Falzon
>> Autographed Morning of the Earth LP 12" Vinyl. This was from MP's own record collection and is a hugely collectible.
Tickets will be $100 per head and we are strongly encouraging everyone to bring their partners and show them what a great cause The Board Meeting is, (and let's face it, it will get us more brownie points so we can stay longer at the Surf Comp after party in November).
The ticket cost will cover a two-course meal, gourmet cheese platters for a mid-afternoon snack and beer, wine and softdrinks for four hours.
The day will kick off at 11.30 and run until 3.30 with talk of a band kicking on from 4pm.
Booking a table of 10 and paying in advance guarantees you one of the legends at your table as well (in an 11th seat).
