-Skimboarding day trips during July holidays

Most of the Gordon's Bay skimboarding club kids go to the after care in Temprence Town. Emanual from Gemany volunteered there and he introduced us to the after care and we decided to pay a visit during the school holiday.

-Encounter conference- I2B set up some ramps at the Hillsong Encounter Conference again this year.

-Hermanus skate park project- The project is in the planning phase. I2B will be assisting and we are looking at a potential club there.

-The I2B skate park's progress- It is in Somerset West at Radloff park. We need to buy another 30 galvanized sheets for phase one (covering the existing wooden ramps). It must be 2mm think and it is R650 a sheet. This is a community project and we are encouraging people to consider sponsoring one (or half) a sheet. Please see the banking details below if you need it. Thanks for your support!

Athletics for people with disabilities by Fanie
-World Champs Lyon 2013-  The championships was interesting but a great experience with some disappointments, but definitely great highlights as well, the relay being one of them. My relay team won silver. I also won a silver in the 200m and placed 4th in the 100m and in the 400m (T37 class).

Well done to all for giving it your best and going out with faith in Christ. It is sad to say that Denswill Maans had a freak accident colliding into another team mate on the warm up track, leaving him with concussion and unable to compete. Thank You Lord that You were with us through the ups and downs and that we could learn from our experiences. 

After the competition we had time to go and explore Lyon, great day out with the team.
