- Presidents Report October 01/10/2012
It sure has been an interesting and enjoyable year with quite a few changes with the view towards adding improvements for the members,
2012 started with the Saltiga competition for the month of Feb, This Comp was based on the highest point snapper winning a Saltiga Fishing Reel, This competition was won by Andrew hood after a tight tussle with Roger Munn, Both their Snapper were caught on 2 kg line, Fantastic effort fellas, all though we didn't receive a large number of anglers I still believe this competition is worth preserving with.
The end of the year presentation evening was held on Sat Feb 4th at the Bellum Hotel, This was a great success with the club provided buses from Pt Mac and Mt Gambier with over 90 people in attendance, A great time was had by all that attended,
The Kelly pool system was re-introduced this year for club fishing competitions, , This has been successful with the club so far giving away a Waco fridge at one comp and a Gen set at another, Congratulations to the two winners, If you are not sure about this system catch up with John Janeway,
The Tuna Competition was a huge success with over 30k in prizes up for grabs, a very big thank you to all the sponsors. The club implemented a few changes to this year’s comp to give more back to the competitors, This being major prizes for heaviest Tuna on line class 2kg to 10kg, We also changed venue for the fellowship night from the local hotel to the footy club, We should keep in mind as we continue to promote the club and the Tuna Comp we will have to find a venue to accommodate all for our functions
I remind all that the AGM will be on Sun 25 Nov, Please give some thought to putting your hand up to be part of the Committee, I have enjoyed the role of President but cannot commit to that position next year, ( plus I think people have had enough of me). It’s time for new blood, it’s a great job working with a fantastic committee, each member of the committee had a role to play and they all played their role witch allowed the whole year to flow without too much controversy.
