Last year people were waiting and upset with competitors in the powered site haven't left. It's not a problem if no one is booked in for Sunday night. Mybe when competitors book, they ask for a late exit on the Sunday. I have book sites 92,93 & 94 at Lumley Hill, I am bring 8 mates to the comp this year. Thanks Daveo

Mate I got your message. Entries and payments received  :tick

I have booked camping already, can payments / entries be taken on the day? I note due date for posted forms on the entry form is the 8th, ie the last day. TIA

It's much, much easier if entries are done before the day.  Leaving it until you get out there makes life much more difficult for the organisers and any catering people.

Typo fixed on the form. Insurance requirement is that they receive a copy of the insurance form for each person before they are covered. Therefore you cannot compete until they have a copy. That means we run all copies into their office on Thursday the 5th & have to scan any after than & email.

If you show up at 6:00am on Saturday morning & want to enter & go straight away, you will have to wait until we finish the briefing & attend other matters before we can scan your insurance & make a competitor card for you before you go fishing. Up to you, but I guess that would be annoying to you & add to the workload for us at the busiest time.

Also if you're not in the first 100 to enter, you miss out on a few gifts.

You can scan / email completed forms this week if that helps.

Cheers,

Re: Wivenhoe Kayak & Canoe Fishing Convention / Brisbane River Bass Opening Classic

Update - the all new Old Town Predator 13 kayak will have it's Qld debut at the Wivenhoe Convention. This new kayak along with a huge range of other kayaks will be available for test paddle (for both competitors & public) over the weekend. This is a great opportunity to test drive a wide range of kayaks to find one that suits you.

I've been asked a few times for a map showing access points to the Brisbane River.

Have posted this before but have just updated it & reposting here for everyone to see.

The weather is looking perfect for the weekend, forcast of 29c for both days. Saturday morning wind, 6km from the NW, Sunday 4km from the same direction. Current barrometric pressure is 1031 & looks like it will only fall slightly by the weekend. Bring it on.

Cheers Andrew

Speaking to the new camp manager this morning.... Capt Logan Camp is fully booked.

I have 3 sites booked but only need 2 now so if anyone is still looking drop me a line.

There are still camp sites available at Lumley Hill.

Fitz

I have heard that the Ewan Maddock Group is doing the Friday and Saturday night BBQ's. Are there options for Saturday and Sunday Lunch? Just wondering if I need to pack food or there is a sausage sizzle or the like ...?

Cheers

Friday night BBQ is hosted by the Ewen Maddock Fish Management Committee so make sure you support them.

Lowood Lions are locked in to be there for Saturday breakfast through to Sunday lunch.
