Last year was my first convention, I found it well run and I enjoyed the social aspect, I don't think I would really change much.
Maybe the venue could vary from year to year that way we get to appreciate the other dams etc???

Regards
Chris

I know that it's has been awhile since this thread was started Fitzy but
we Kayak-Fisher-Folk are "all" still very excited about the happening of another convention,
so I thought I'd give this topic a bit of a bump

Just one more thing from me though regarding head-wear within the usual starter pack .......
 could I please have one of your lovely Sweet Water Store, base ball caps ........ please  ;)

Fitzy,

Happy to see the river part of the comp as well.  Will need some good maps for competitors, so some don't go missing and create problems for the organisers.  In the end, Big W is big and can handle all competitors even if numbers went to 200. 

Like the idea of a second round somewhere else.  Just need to find a venue that can offer the same as Captn Logan Camp etc.

Sadly will be away all of Sept and won't be able to make the comp for the first time since it started, which is a shame.

Cheers,

Pete

Does anyone else feel the same? Sweetwater caps as opposed to another type / style / sort?

Am organising what's doing with these next week.

One suggestion was for a legionares style cap (see attached image & available colors).

Any thoughts / comments?

Thanks,

fitz..

Hi All,

Yep I know i'm a bit behind getting the entry forms out (compared to previous). I've taken a few days off work to get things up to speed.
The 2011 entry forms are only days away, just waiting to get the insurance coverage & permit paperwork finalised, however there should not be any issue that I can see arrising.

Sponsors are coming on line fast & the event coming together smoothly. These are updated on the top post in the thread in the Events Board .

Cheers,

Fitzy..

is there really a need? Think like myself people have a million and one hats.

Dont know what the cost difference is but what about a 2011 Neoprene Drink holder.......you know we call them a bloody stubby cooler, can never have too many of them right.

Hell I'd buy a few sweetwater stubby coolers if they where in the store i keep wearing mine out or loosing them  :-\.

Can you even still get those legionares hats? i was looking for one a while ago to poke a few holes in and camo up for howling dogs.

Sadly too busy to make this convention  :(

It's not about sweetwater Steve, it's about the event, the location, & the fish restocking in the area. However note taken on the stubby cooler idea gents, will look into it.

BTW- being busy is no excuse mate. I've got a string of ex girl friends who seem to keep telling me that for some reason...  :walkplank

Cheers..

The event is great and many things to many people just shame that i truely am too busy, haha good one Fitzy.

Thanks for the offer Toni but ill make do for now.

Cattle, fences and smoke are more of a concern comming into this time of year with calves on the ground.

Would be great if we see more photos of Nice fish this year and hoolaguns and hoolagirls having a good time!
