Field Weekend One sponsored by Streetwise Coffee started with a casting event on Saturday morning. 20 members participated in the casting in fine conditions. Casting accuracy was taken out by Xavier McKenzie with an impressive score of 99. Hamish Nichol recorded best distance of the day with 185.9m. Mark Roberts had the best total combined points of 250. Thanks to those members who made the effort to support the casting event.
Fishing kicked of at midday in reasonable conditions. Most found fishing hard going, but pleasingly several members brought gurnard to the scales, with 12 in total being weighed.
The standouts for the weekend were new member Jason Christensen with 4 gurnard, followed closely by Chris Morris with 3, and another new member George Fotu with 2. Tareq Asaad also managed 2 impressive gurnard, with his biggest of 0.99kg, taking out the first jackpot of the season collecting $50 cash and a $50 voucher from our new sponsor Gun City & Fishing.
Thanks to Gun City & Fishing who have come on board as named sponsor for jackpot prizes for the season. Congratulations to all those who took out prizes, thanks again to Streetwise Coffee for sponsoring this Field Weekend. Remember to support all our generous sponsors.
Field weekend two starts on Friday 11 th October being the first of our open field weekends with the later weigh-in time of 2pm Sunday.
