I don't think every fisher person in Brisbane will be coming to your lure expo Fitzy...

Having said that, I will definitely be there... ;)

Agreed.  I bet there will be more fishos at Fernvale than at that hardware store tho  ;) Timing bad for me, or I would have gone and bought a couple of snags to help out.

Selling bangers at Bunnings doesn't attract fishos, unless a fish needs to go there for something else. I would see the value being about general public awareness of the wyralong dam program and maybe attract some new blood from the non-fishos to get involved.

Snags sizzles are ok for making a few bucks, but as a sustainable funding source to run a stocking program it becomes a drain on limited resources (ie membership) from my experience. Did it alot years ago (pre SIP), we worked it out that if the 10 people who gave up their whole day + fuel + lost wages etc threw in the $50 each they were out of pocket you'd earn as much & everyone got to go fishing or the kids footy etc...

If they have asked I could have given them a space at Fernvale to promote their program, like the BP Dam group did.  :youbeauty

Cheers,

fitz..

The LAFMA group only got the Bunnings show as another group pulled out.

Bad timing for me as I can not assist them on the weekend as well.

On the side have heard up to and over 1K being made in profits if all goes well.

Next meeting fro LAMFA is on Tuesday 14 August, 7 pm @ Beaudesert RSL, with the main topic being fund raising events.

Come along if your interested and if you wanna join, membership is 20 bucks.

I'll be working at Bunnings Snag Table on Saturday and will be at Fernvale on Sunday.  Bugger the lawn!

Let's hope there's still enough goodies for sale on Sunday to keep an Old Tackle Rat happy

I spoke to our Treasurer , Glen this morning and although he hasn't done a full reconcilliation yet, he's thinking we cleared around $1700 for the day.  Looks like it was well worth the effort.
