Well we have entered into the next decade, the 20’s, with an open mind, optimistic outlook, new executive committee members and aspirations for making the 15th Anniversary of the Weipa Fishing Classic one for the memory books.
The churn of works is kicking off to prepare for this years event. Our proud, honest, hard working and committed community volunteers are already breaking a sweat drafting designs for merchandise, designs for the ever important Weipa Fishing Classic shirt, organising sub committees, sponsor packs and the overall event plan. There is a shape forming in the distance which is exciting to ponder, the possibility of the Classic being the first event to christen the Andoom Oval multi-purpose venue.
Each year this fabulous event draws thousands of visitors from across the country to compete in the biggest fishing competition in Cape York and arguably one of the best in the state; as well as the chance to take home a haul of prizes from the multi day family friendly event.
So its time to start putting your spare change in the fishing fund, organising your teams, planning which secret spot will produce, fish species to target and getting the fishing reels warmed up in preparation for this years 15th anniversary of the Weipa Fishing Classic.
