Kahawai Comp 2015

winner-smallWell done to Scott Herd on winning this years Kahawai Competition with a 2.070kg fish.
It was a really tough days fishing with 450 rods trying to catch the big one but only 15 fish were weighed.
Still a great crowd gathered at prize giving to watch the winners collect the huge pile of sponsored prizes donated by our awesome sponsors.
May prizes were ‘spot prizes’ or ticket numbers drawn at random and all kids who fished received prizes.
Many thanks to FCO and the other sponsors for making this event possible. Also to the hard working Pania SCC team, especially John Purser (event coordinator) for his tireless work of the last few months.

See you all again next year, and we hope the fish will turn up too! 🙂
