    Re: Bass on fly Tournament

    Hi Chris,
    We should make the camp ground at around 2100 hrs saturday eve. Hope ther is no problem with the late arrival. Kate and I can't get out of brissy till 1830 hrs. In the Rules they refer to wearing a PFD while the boat is hooting along. I didn't catch if it had to be be a bulky PFD1 type or Less bulky type approved PFD type. Can you clarify this on for me.
    Catch up 2morrow eve.
    Jeff and Kate.

    Jeff,
    I wonder If Sniper is available as he had a big part in draughting the rules .
    IMO I would wear the ones you have to carry by law , like you said its only while you are on the plane . I am going to wear the big Banana's. (Did some one say Banana's, as a mate of mine says "Being superstitious is unlucky" )

    Re: Bass on fly Tournament

    That's good that it went well Chris, and congrats on the victory. Shame the victor didn't score the boat, but you're going OK with what you've got already. Actually since you've already got such a fine big arse electric on your boat, you should probably donate the one you won to......I don't know, maybe a mate who could do with an upgrade from his motorguide. Have I ever told that you're a really good bloke.

    Re: Bass on fly Tournament

    I think Chris should maybe donate it to someone who showed him where the fish were. Silly me for doing that. lol. Congrates Chris on your win, and Voltzy and Carl on there placings. Would like to know if Carl is going to give himself the FFF lessons? That would be great to see. And to coola on winning the Galeforce Saratoga boat. Bugger, was only 1 ticket away from it too. Thems the breaks.
    Well done to Chris for the time and effort that he put into getting this comp off the ground, and to the sponsors for supporting us, and lastly to all the competitors who turned up on the day. Was a tougher bite than was expected but still a great day. For those who couldn't make it this year, we hope to see you all there next year.
    Cheers

    Re: Bass on fly Tournament

    Hey Chris

    Well done - both on organising and on winning the comp.

    I think we'll have to get more involved next year and give you a bit more competition!!

    On another subject - a little while ago I thought i saw a post from someone who was doing some activities with kids and was looking for old fly gear. Do you recall seeing anything like that?

    Cheers

    Jeff

    Re: Bass on fly Tournament

    Vaughn, I could have been 100 tickets away from winning the boat. Yours was the lucky one to be pulled out. Well done. Pitty you didn't land any legal bass for the comp. The little buggers didn't want to play the game for everyone. Next time though. You going on the club trip next weekend?
