Wakeboard annual event
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.
