Wake­board an­nual event

Mansfield Courier - - MANSFIELD MATTERS -

COUN­CIL­LOR Russ Bate praised the Bon­nie Doon Wake­board Demon­stra­tion event that was held at the Rail Trail Bridge on Fe­bru­ary 1.

Coun­cil con­trib­uted re­sources to­wards gain­ing ap­provals from Goul­burn Mur­ray Wa­ter and VicRoads for the event in very tight time frames.

On the day some coun­cil staff were also on hand to main­tain traf­fic con­trol.

“Or­gan­is­ers and the au­di­ence of about 1000 people and at least 70 boats (all based around the Bon­nie Doon Rail Trail bridge) thought the idea had real po­ten­tial for fu­ture ex­pan­sion,” Cr Bate said.

Coun­cil will now work with Bon­nie Doon businesses, in con­junc­tion with Wake Mag­a­zine pub­lish­ers, to look at an ex­panded an­nual event.
