IMG_2019.JPG
End to another fun year of training.  We had a great turn out from across all ages and classes, with over 40 people at the final end of year training.  Especially pleasing to see the turn out from the family class, with most of the regular attendees making it!

Following the hard training, we also a time to relax over some food and drink, discuss 2019 and look forward to how we continue to develop Bluewave into 2020 and beyond.

We hope everyone has a relaxing Christmas and New Year, and look forward to see you all in 2020.
