A short meeting with boat representatives present at the weigh in was held to discuss the proposed participation in the Fiji Fishing Competition in November.  The club proposes to send a team of five (Club to pay for Registration, boat charter and airline flights) with the selection of participants to be initially from one (1) member from each boat from the top five boats after the September Competition.  So it looks like the boat selection is still up for grabs for that all important fifth spot at least.   More details will be shared as it comes to hand.

We look forward to seeing everybody at the next fishing competition on 20 August 2016. Sponsors for the day to be advised.

Registration will be Friday 19 August 2016 from 5pm-7pm at Betio Lodge .

Competition weigh in at Betio Lodge at 5pm sharp, 20 August 2016.
