FRIDAY FLASH 25 NOVEMBER 2022
Same report as the last couple of weeks – none!! This must be shaping up to be one of the worst weather spells (as far as fishing is concerned) in spring for many years. It’s not enough we have DOC (proposed High Protection Areas), MPI (Caulerpa CAN), WRC (Regional Coastal Plan – since abandoned)
And local extremists all trying to stop us from fishing – now we have Mother Nature to contend with too!
To celebrate the beginning of summer, we will be holding our annual Hawaiian Night next Thursday, Dec 1st.
Put on your Hawaiian shirt, lei or hula skirt and join in the festivities. We’ll add Hawaiian Burgers, Ham Steaks and a few cocktails to our usual offerings – should be a great night!
Be aware that over the summer, our committee will be conducting periodic door checks for membership status. Please make sure that your subscriptions have been paid and any guests you bring are signed in. As a guide, people should only be signed in three times after which we would expect them to become a member if they choose to continue to use our facilities.
The club is in need of more staff for our kitchen and bar. Specifically we need more people over the holiday and tournament seasons, but some of these jobs will become more permanent as we have current staff that will be leaving town next year for further study and other reasons. If you, or anyone you know, is interested in working in our fantastic environment, please contact Alan in the first instance (07) 8664121 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Ladies Blue Tournament
The Ladies Blue kicks off on December 1st and runs through until the end of April 2023. Eligible species are all species of billfish and tuna. Get your boat (team) entered now and any lady members of our club or any other club affiliated to NZSFC who catch a fish on that boat will have her fish count towards the tournament prizes.
