Two Days & Done
Eighteen months ago the President had a idea, now we didn't say it was a good idea. Any way this is how the story goes. The Waitara Offshore Fishing Club was turning 21 and like anyone turning that magic number you hold a party.
The idea was to hold a two day competition, now the work begins. Securing our Jubilee Sponsor, Panasonic were happy to take on the major sponsor for another year. The committee were out and about contacting local companys and our loyal sponsors from previous years.
Being a birthday it was time for a little make over, so Stacey and the team at Topprint came up with a new and fresh look for all our advertising. Also introducing the Clubs new member who still has been named, so come on put your thinking caps on.
So as the planning went on and the time came to involve the anglers, we had know idea how the two day competition would go down. Jump a head and it was welcomed with open arms, It was the Club's second biggest competition.
We had 104 boats entered, 349 anglers a record junior group of 45 (they are our future). Through the hard work of the Committee we gave out over $65,000.00 in prizes over the two days.
So in closing the idea was a good one, but without the support of our Sponsors and the people that enter the Competition it would never be possible. So on behalf of the Waitara Offshore Fishing Club Committee we would like to give a big thank you to everyone involved.
