While your club has been in hibernation with this Covid thing going on, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel so would like to kick things off with a bang for all members financial by 1 December 2021.
With the unfortunate cancellation of Shelly Beach tournament we are going to start a brand new photo measure competition for financial members of the club from 1 December 21 to 14 February 22.
The entry fee will be free as your membership fee is staying the same as previous years but this year as was last year pretty disrupted so we have not been able to have the club nights we normally would! To be automatically entered you just need to have paid your 2021/2022 membership by 1 December 21. Renewal of your membership can be completed on the club website now. www.waikatosportfishing.co.nz
If you are joining the club part way through the measure competition you must be a paid up member 24 hours before you catch your fish for measuring.
We are looking at a prize pool of around $5,000 being a mix of products and cash prizes across Adult and mixed Junior/Small fry divisions with prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd. Includes Snapper, Kingfish, Trevally, Kahawai and Gurnard.
The competition rules and details for downloading the measure app that is used by the NZ Sportfishing Council for their measure competition will also be on the club website by 1 December 21. The app, according to Bob, is very easy to use. The app is in development so we will advise release date, we are promised by 1 December 21!
Preferably a measure mat with a hard end to fit the fishes nose to is used but if you have a means to clearly show the fishes nose is starting at the 0 point of your measure and the photo is clear that will be acceptable. The final acceptance of the photo is at the discretion of a very fair minded committee.
We will have a prizegiving/club night by Tuesday 22 February 22 to celebrate the catches and reintroduce each other to each other!
The competition rules and details for downloading the measure app that is used by the NZ Sportfishing Council for their measure competition will also be on the club website by 1 December 21.

Thank you to the members who have already renewed their membership this season. A full membership card order will be completed this month so you have these for 1 December onwards.
