Bondi Creative Youth Fair Success

BCYF April 2014 Thank you
Last Saturday (5th April) marked another successful Bondi Creative Youth which boasted a fantastic range of craft and baked goods, all produced by our enthusiastic young people from in and around the area.
We were blessed by lovely weather, supportive crowds and creative trading tables to match.
The general feedback from stall holders was they enjoyed themselves, made some money and most importantly, learnt from the experience.
A big shout out goes to Nathan at Bondi Farmers Markets who once again, graciously accommodated WAYS and the youth with the trading space, which made the event possible.
Another massive thanks goes out to Shaun and Brian at the Bondi Beach Pavilion who lent WAYS all the chairs, tables and gazebos for the markets. Without these we would not have been able to trade.
We had 3 great volunteers on the day, Jason, Kathryn and Rob. All worked tirelessly to help make the day run smoothly.
A big thanks goes out to all the parents involved who helped out on the day and supported the traders with positive encouragement and guidance.
And to all the young people who starred on the day…WELL DONE AND CONGARTS!
Keep an eye out for the next one…


New cymabls for WAYS drum kit

WAYS now has a new range of cymbals for our drum kit. They include 14″ Sabian hi-hats,  16″ and 18″ Sabian Crashes and a 20″ Sabian ride cymbal. We also have a brand-spanking-new Pearl snare that needs a good belting to wear it in.

Our rehearsal space is $10 per hour where you can make as much noise as you wish – hire includes PA, drum kit, amps and access to guitars.

A dedicated music PC will be coming shortly so check this space!!

Many thanks goes out to Studio 57 who supplied WAYS with our new equipment – www.studio57.com.au

Last Saturday Bondi hosted its 10th annual BOWL-A-RAMA down at the bowl. There was a massive turn out to watch legends like Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero as well as all the top current pros including Pedro Barros, Bucky Lasek and Rune Glifberg rip the aqua bowl apart.


A huge thanks goes out to Chad Ford / F Beat Productions and John Fox / Bondi Skateriders Club for suppling WAYS with 40 day passes to WAYS clients who all had a wicked time being part of the event.
