Unlike General Elections here, there was only a minor change in the team for 2008 which was decided Dec. 5th 2007, they have a new Secretary and a new webmaster for their site, and the changes look good at their domain –

President ? Mr. Andrew Lewis; Vice-President ? Mr. Jason Kistoo; Secretary ? Mr Paul Heaselgrave and Treasurer ? Mrs. Rachel Roett. This Committee will be responsible for running the BSA?s affairs. Mr. Elvis Carter was elected Head Judge at the General Meeting along with Mr Nicholas Donawa as National Team Coach.

The BSA?s website bsasurf.net will now be administered by Mr. Jake Corbin and will be the main source of information for BSA members ? mainly through the monthly newsletter which will continue to be sent out electronically. BSA Membership Forms will be available at the first contest venue (Brandons) and should be completed in full. Hard copies of the Newsletter will also be available at the First Contest and thereafter will be distributed electronically.
