August 16 Presidents Report

Welcome to the August Newsletter.

There has been a steady flow of entries to the Mid-Winter Challenge. Remember this is a length comp. You need to provide a photo and catch card, (filled out so it can be read) Rules are on our website and in this newsletter.

July Club night was both interesting and informative. Phil Appleyard who is the NZSFC Vice President and owner of the Big Fish Bait and Tackle Company gave a great presentation of how Braid is made and it’s characteristics. This was followed by Dave Lockwood and Bob Gutsell joining Phil on advising us how the NZSFC works and what they do for the members. Thanks to those three for a great evening.

There is NO Club night for this month due to the AGM and Prize Giving on Saturday the 22nd August. Bar will be open at 5.00pm, with things starting at 5.30pm.

We are still requiring a Catch Card officer. And always welcome new committee members.

A huge thanks to Taryn our Web Admin man for updating our sponsors links on the web site. The rolling banner has improved in speed and linking up with our sponsors web pages has improved immensely.
