Organisers of the weekend’s Skullcandy Oz Grom say they received 10 million hits on their live webcast of Monday and Tuesday’s finals at Lennox Head. Most of the viewers came via the Skullcandy Oz Grom Open website and many were from the US.
Organiser Steve Condon said it was the first grom comp screened live on the web and ‘the standard of the competition and the drawing capability of the kids wanting to get into the competition is the best of the best’.
Mr Condon said the ongoing viability of the event was a testament to the huge efforts of co-organisers Johnny Hewitt and Steve O’Brien and the support of the Lennox Head community and local businesses.
