President’s Letter 2017

September 13th, 2017

Once again, we had a big year at the San Onofre Surfing Club. Your elected Board and many, many volunteers worked together to create & host events that brought families and friends together for fun and to create lifetime memories (especially for the kids). I cannot stress strongly enough how appreciative I am of the dedication of these old-time and new club members alike. Beyond the regular events listed in the pages below, we had some significant projects that your club helped to address. Without the club and the volunteers, these things would not get done.

• Fighting copyright/trademark infringement (Did you know that a rip-off of the Club logo was on sale at
Target stores this year?)
• Working with the State in support of the Road repairs at the North end of the beach. (without these, the
beach would have been closed).
• Relocating the Middle Beach wind vane.
• Modification to the South beach Volleyball courts
• Emergency support and relocation of the Iconic Shack.
• Repair to shower lines

All of this volunteer work and the great Club events happens with the efforts of our membership and the funds we receive from our modest $20 dues. Despite the increased role that the club is taking in the upkeep of the beach, our membership numbers have reduced. We really need all our past members who love the club to join each year and for you to encourage your friends and beach neighbors to join our great club. There are some big issues in our future including the renewal of the State lease in just a few years. We need to remain a strong and influential group to represent the use of the beach and keep it open to the public.

Lastly, I just want to thank the 2017 Board of Directors and encourage everyone to visit our website at (www.sanonofresurfingclub.org) to:

• Join the club early and to vote for the upcoming board
• Keep an eye out for a schedule of future events
• Order your merchandise and show your support for the club!

Get involved in the club and help us keep the Aloha going!!!!

2016 President Letter

December 2nd, 2015

To Our Members,

Once again it has been an honor to serve as President of the San Onofre Surfing Club this past year. 2015 has been a quite a year. 70-degree water temperatures into November and plenty of surf for all of us to enjoy.

I am pleased to report that our Club’s membership numbers have continued to increase. As I mentioned last year, having a strong membership base is crucially important to the Club’s ability to be an advocate for what is in the best interest of this beach that we all cherish.

Thank you to all that participated in our club events in 2015. For those that were not able to do so, keep an eye out for our 2016 event announcements and participate if possible. These events are exclusively for you, our members. I’d like to extend a huge “thank you” to our board of directors and all that volunteer to help make these events a success year after year.

We do face some challenges…

The current park lease is up for renewal on August 30th, 2021. There is no clarity at this point in time as to what will happen with the access to the beach and who oversees the facilities. The club is very focused on the historic significance of San Onofre both to the sport of surfing and those that appreciate the ocean and nature.

Additionally, we continue to closely monitor the erosion of the beach and the road. This has progressed significantly over the last year. With the high probability of a forthcoming El Nino weather pattern, there is reason for concern. We expect at the very least to have additional beach maintenance expenditures and are working hard to maintain our good relationship with the State Parks folks to assure we keep our beach in the condition we all desire. During periods of bad weather, the State Parks may temporarily restrict access until the conditions dry out a bit and/or erosion issues are inspected for safety concerns. While this may be an inconvenience, the Club appreciates your cooperation and understanding. Ultimately the weather and erosion is up to Mother Nature but we will do whatever we can to preserve the beach and it’s historical features.

In conclusion, I would like to humbly ask that all of you renew your club memberships right away. Upon joining, you will receive a link to allow you to vote for the 2016 Board of Directors. We encourage you to vote… all ballots must be completed by February 15th, 2016.

Lastly, if you hang out with others down at Sano that aren’t members, encourage them to join. With some of the challenges I outlined above, we will need to have a strong membership to be effective in our efforts to preserve and protect the San Onofre experience.

Respectfully,
Brian Ephraim
