Open Paddle Day at Wyaralong Dam
Success is the best way to describe the day. The weather held off with just a few specs of rain, despite the forecasts! Thank you to all our membership support team and to all the sponsors and distributers who set up great displays, for all to see.
It was early start for all with the gates opening finally at 6.15 am due to a power outage. We where all set by 8 and the sausages where a welcome breakfast for most.
10am saw a start down at the boat ramp with a huge selection of canoes and kayaks to try. I think I counted about 17 in all,as well as lots on the top of the hill still to admire. Thank you also to the Brocken Paddle club for bringing a selection of craft for people to try out.
This advent gave us an idea of how the venue was going to work out, and what we would need, to put in place on our future Carpbusters day at the dam on Saturday. March the 9th 2013.
The grass area next to the car park was excellent and there was plenty of space to utilise. We ran a raffle all day, as well as selling sausages, soft drinks, tea, coffee and cakes. As you can see from the sponsors on the first page of our web site there was no shortage of supply of gear to check out.
We raised over $900 dollars from our raffle, sizzle, cakes and drinks. With three new members and two renewals. Thank You! Everyone!
Fingerling Purchase! At last!
Lloyd our secretary has placed an order for 42,000 bass fingerlings or more and they look like being ready for delivery in the middle of December. We never know exactly what date and we only get two or three days notice. As soon as we know we will email everyone on our membership list. Please make sure you have an up to date email address with our secretary.
This going to be an exiting day for many of us who have been working tirelessly in the background to make this happen.
The fingerlings will be delivered and then it will be up to us to distribute them as far and wide as possible. We will need many hands on the day with paddle craft and any one with an electric motor fitted to your dingy or bass boat will be welcome. We will be asking SEQWATER to use our petrol motor on our club boat, so we can get some of the fingerlings up towards the top of he dam, without delay. As any delay will be critical for their survival.
News Flash Yes 45,000 bass fingerlings where released in december. 2012. By the time you read this they should be catchable!!!
Carp Buster Day!!! 201
Our committee has decided that Saturday, March the 1st 2014 will be our Carp Buster competition day. We have also set down the rules and the costs as well as the major prizes for the day. Check the poster out on our resource page. We will need loads of volunteers for the day and hopefully raise a load of cash for the purchase of fingerlings!
