The Natures Shapes Contest between RM2 and RM3 is a GO
The Natures Shapes Second Annual Surf Contest. It is going to be held in Robert Moses State Park. The East End of the Parking Field 2. I believe they open the ticket booths at 7 AM and start to charge $10 per car. The first heat will go into the water at 8 AM. Please be there early to sign in for your heats by 7:30. When the time gets closer I will inform everyone which divisions are going in first. Please fill out the application below and the waiver and mail it. If you were at the last contest and signed the waiver you will not have to sign it again.
The application has been redesigned so it is easier to navigate.

Please see the attached application and note the following information:
Part A in addition to the contestant’s information we are also asking for the parent’s contact information.
Part B these are the new age groups divisions for the 2015 contest season

Part D is the fee schedule for the divisions. it is $25 for the first division, $15 for the second and $10 for each division after this. Open Short Board will be $25 added to the cost for the other divisions.
