A once off just for those entered in the convention. For insurance reasons, no guests, no visitors, no public are allowed into this area.

Never before, never again. Credit to SEQWater & staff for making this unique opportunity available.  :tick

I think the sign at the gate says 6:00am, but considering the briefing starts at 6am and everyone at the camp site is there for the comp, 5ish should be ok if you're quiet.

Another successful event Fitzy; well done to you and your team, the efforts are very much appreciated!  :Clap)

Highlights for me: Steve M's 58cm Bass and Bushwacker's range of lures.

Lowlight: The number 8.

Reults - Wivenhoe Kayak Fishing Convention / Brisbane River Bass Opening Classic
« Reply #55 on: September 09, 2013, 10:16:17 PM »
It wouldn't be a Wivenhoe Convention unless there was some sort of mistake.

The announced results - Lake
1st - Paul Deecke 173 points
2nd - Anna Deecke 167 points
3rd - Sel McLennan 132 points

Sel came & saw me after the presentations & asked if Steve Micallef should have been 3rd place, so we've checked it out. Taking Sel's word for it that I may have stuffed up, I asked if Sel would be catching up with Steve. He said he would so I gave him an extra Carlisle Paddle I had and asked if could give it to Steve for me. 

Going back through the data base & photos, here's what we've found.
Steve entered the event twice to put him into the draw for both random draw kayaks. Entry numbers 68 & 69. This is great from an organisers perspective as it raises more $ from entry fees. A few enter twice & the $ is gratefully received.  :Clap)

Steve fished the lake for the whole weekend.

Day 1
Steve went out on the lake and while he missed getting a bass his best golden perch was 41cm long, he had mistakenly taken his river entry card with him, so he took the photos with this card. This is why his score went onto the incorrect entry number. I looked at the number of the card in the photo.

Day 2
Steve again fished the lake & took his correct entry card with him this time. He caught that huge 58cm bass & 39cm Golden Perch.

If his combined points from both days were totaled Steve would have been on 138 points. This would have put Steve into 3rd place overall.

After discussions and long thought it has been decided to award equal third to Steve & Sel. Acknowledging that Steve took the incorrect card on Saturday and Sel for being so thoughtful of his mate. Sel's prize & 3rd place stays, AND Steve is awarded equal 3rd where he would have been.

I've got to say that Steve did not say a thing, nor did he complain at all. However credit given where credit is due, he caught the fish fair & square so should be recognized.

Adjusted Results - Lake
1st - Paul Deecke
2nd - Anna Deecke
EQUAL 3rd - Steve Micallef AND Sel McLennan

Below are the pictures of Steve's scoring fish:
1st pic - Day 1 Golden Perch = 41cm
2nd pic - Day 2 Bass = 58cm
3rd pic - Day 2 Golden Perch = 39cm

I hope this has explained the situation effectively, however if anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Congratulations to all the winners, and a big thanks to Sel for letting us know there was a misunderstanding with the scores.  Steve's Bass is an absolute horse.
