I just went to register for the Bondi to Bronte swim. Haven’t done it for a while but I’m now fit enough to have ago now.
What’s with the pricing ??? $40 normal and $50 on the day ??
I was waiting until today because cold water and me aren’t the best of friends or my low level asthma. Is it just me or as a few swims start to get professional organisers the price doubles?
I would mind a lot less if ALL the money went to the actual surf clubs, but does it??
I would think not, so I would like to know what % actually does. I believe charities that use professional organisers have to declare somewhere what % ACTUALLY goes to the surf club (I could be wrong here but If it isn’t it should be and/or they might not classify the surf clubs as charities).
So Bronte (and by extension the Cole Classic), what is the % of my money that goes to the clubs.... Care to let us know?
In the interim, I will go to a couple of extra races where all the money goes to the clubs and they don’t see me as a cash cow.. and , if by chance, I feel like making a donation to a professional private profit-making organisation, I’ll drop in to my local bank.
