I'm very excited to announce that Sharpe Design Solutions is partnering with MyCoast Promotions to bring Central Coast Beach Fest to the Coast on Saturday 30th & Sunday 1st December 2013.
MyCoast Promotions are the team who brought the legendary surfing festival, “The Careflight Surf Classic” to the Coast between 1996 – 2003, raising over $150,000 for the Careflight Helicopter Service.
The winners list of the Careflight Classic throughout the years reads like a “who’s who” of Central Coast surfing and body boarding – Adrian “Ace” Buchan, Matt “Wilko” Wilkinson, Glenn “Micro” Hall, Steve “Bullet” MacKenzie, Greg Arnold, Samba Mann, Luke Faunce, Mark and Sean MacGuigan, and Damien Wills to name a few.
Incorporating the community spirit of the Careflight Surf Classic – CC Beach Fest will be the event for the next generation of Central Coast wave warriors with competitions in surfing, body boarding, SUP & paddle races and an ocean swim.
CC Beach Fest will truly be an event for the whole family with entertainment, ice cream eating and sand sculpting by art crew the Steel City Collective who will create works of sand art before your very eyes, giving inspiration for you to sculpt your own plot of sand. There will be lots of prizes for the best “kids only” created sand sculptures, as well as great prizes for family entries – so start thinking about what sort of masterpiece you are going to create!
Details of the events are still taking shape. So that’s where I come in. Sharpe Design Solutions will be launching www.ccbeachfest.com.au very soon and we’ll be leveraging social media to promote this inaugural event and provide up-to-the-minute information. I encourage all “Coasties” to LIKE the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ccbeachfest. I’m providing ongoing support with Facebook page management and considering a Twitter account to tweet live results throughout the event (would love to hear your comments on this idea!) as well as generating spectator interest via Instagram pics and video.
I love an opportunity to provide creative marketing strategy concepts for such a fantastic local event and feel Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will provide the perfect platform for sharing information and great images of what is going to be a landmark weekend event. Mark it on your calendar peeps: Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December 2013.
