Wivenhoe Kayak & Canoe Convention Report

Event Wrap Up

101 Entrants - 88 males -13 females

70 stocked fish caught
13 Bass were caught, biggest was 52cm by Denis Shaw
0 golden perch caught

56 bass caught, biggest was 54cm by David Soady
1 golden perch caught. 46cm by Paul Fitzpatrick

Overall Points
There was a mix up in who caught what in a duo fishing together (we accept responsibility), this was corrected.
Champion angler was Denis Shaw with 95 points
2nd was Andrew McQueen with 93 points
3rd was Toni Potter with 86 points

Random draws aplenty as we had a few extra prizes but the main prizes of a OK Prowler 4.1 & the Dirigo 120 Angler went to a couple of deserving fellows.

The event has raised $3416.oo for fish restocking efforts.

The feedback at this stage from SEQWater is great with only one general public asking about the use of the safety boat. No incidents or accidents to speak of.
Everyone conducted themselves in a suitable manner.

Again, a big thankyou to everyone for all of your help & support. It IS REALLY appreciated, & a special thanks from me to  Basser, Pam, Tony, Maryanne, Andrew, Bruce, Dale, Bob & Lil for working tirelessly over the weekend. Also a big thanks to Toni, Sel & Biggles for help.

Decision will be made in the next month if the event will be run again in 2011.

If anyone would like to have thier pics put into a year book DVD, please load them into the Convention section of the Gallery & I will extract from there, or email them (not in high res please) to me.
