Canberra PWC Enthusiasts group

The Canberra PWC Enthusiasts group

The group was formed from the old Canberra Jetsports Boating Association (CJSBA), which we disbanned in late 2001.  The club was finding hard to obtain insurance cover along with nearly every other social or sporting club as a result of the fall of two major insurance companies.  As a affiliate with the AJSBA and we could not be insured, we closed the CJSBA and all went go-karting with what was left.  A great night.

The ACT Govt had chosen to de-register 360 registered clubs due to the lack of submitting formal forms and reporting.  Acting on advice by the then Attorney General's dept, we formed the Canberra PWC enthusiasts group in August 2002.

The group is mainly made up of social riders, and mostly runabout riders who enjoy exploring the coast and inland waterways.  At the peak we had 84 email contacts and local interested PWCers.

When it suits, we meet at the Hellenic Club in Woden on the second Wed of every second month.  Social rides are organised via social media websites or email and mobile SMS.

We have member who fight for PWC rights, both at a State and Territory laws, we run educational rides and assist newbies.  Having access to qualified mechanical technical guys and PWC/Boating mechanics.

If you need any further info.  Call Peter 0413 58 58 90   wc

Club is still going, a bit more relaxed these days.  The dinners are planned two months apart or as needed.
Social rides are regular.   Rides vary with touring ir adventure styles along coast.

Hi Charlie,

Congratulations on the new purchases.

If you and your friend are interested, then the Canberra guys are getting together for dinner at 7pm on Wednesday 13/8/14 at the Bistro of the Hellenic Club at Woden.  Nothing formal, just a meet and greet.  You're both most welcome to join us.

If you're not a member of the Club then just have me paged or ring me when you arrive and I'll sign you in.


Regards

Rory,

I am also keen on checking the club out, do I need to become a member or anything or just turn up to a meeting? Are there any other regular meetings and if so how do I find out?

Cheers

Hi Ash,

No membership, it's just a group of guys and girls with a common interest.

Also, no set monthly meetings.  We're pretty informal and just get together whenever we feel the need.

You're more than welcome to join us at 7pm at the Hellenic Club tomorrow night (Wednesday the 13th).  If you're not a member of the Hellenic Club then have me paged at the Reception Desk or give me a call and I'll sign you in.


Regards

No worries Ash. we still had about a dozen people turn up, including another newby.

No set dates for our 'get togethers'.  It's just whenever we feel the need.  Very informal.

As for average age ... hmmm ... our riders would be from late teens/early 20's through to mid 50's.  Some of them have a preference for wave jumping, whilst others enjoy exploring the coast line or rivers/lakes.  We try to ride areas that offer a bit of everything.

Hi, I have also recently purchased a seadoo gtx, so I am interested in meeting other fellow riders. Do you have any plans for a get together or rides in the near future?

We will be represented at a Maritime Marine Safety day on 28th Sept being held at Hanging Rock boat ramp.
Look for SeaDoo and Yamaha tents.
