Bi-Monthly Competition

The name change from bi-monthly event to as above was approved at the clubs 2020 AGM. 

There is a $50 voucher for the heaviest fish weighed in and another $50 voucher for the fish with the best condition factor. One fish cannot be eligible for both prizes and the condition factor takes preference, so if you have a really good fish it will only take out the condition factor prize and the heaviest fish prize will then go to the next heaviest fish.

All club events, including salt water events, will allow you to earn points that count towards the club points trophy awarded at our annual prize giving so don’t miss out.

You must register for each event by Friday evening prior to the weigh-in. Registration is at the clubhouse on Friday from 5.30 pm and costs $5 per angler. The cost allows for one junior to fish with one paying adult. Also RSVP for the sausage sizzle on the Sunday.
