Volunteer Marine Rescue Bundaberg Family Fishing Classic
FAMILY FISHING CLASSIC 2015
The Volunteer Marine Rescue Bundaberg Family Fishing Classic for 2014 having been held over the first weekend of the Qld June school holidays from 27th to 29th June.
It was a huge success attracting 1,359 entrants (408 juniors and 951 seniors), with some coming from interstate and all parts of Queensland to partake of some of the $58,000 of prizes on offer. Records numbers of fish were caught in all categories and particularly bream. Major lucky draws saw two boat/motor/trailer packages on offer valued at $24,000. (see ‘History’ for the statistics)
Special thanks must go to our major sponsors who agreed to come on board to support VMR Bundaberg once again. Their continuing generosity and support is greatly appreciated, as is the support of all of our sponsors (See ‘Sponsors’ for details).
Photos of the weekend, as well as past events, have been placed on our web site –is there a photo of you in there? (See ‘Photo Gallery’ for photos)
Importantly, the VMR Bundaberg Family Fishing Classic is a major fundraiser for Marine Rescue Bundaberg. Since inception of the Fishing Classic, much needed funds have been raised for replacement of our primary rescue vessel. We are pleased to now report that a contract to build a new rescue vessel has been signed and completion is expected in time for the 2015 Family Fishing Classic.
Planning has commenced for our next Classic to be held over the first weekend of the Qld June school holidays from 26th to 28th June 2015. Once again, we will be seeking the support of our major sponsors and aiming to providing two boat/motor/trailer packages as our major lucky draws once again.
So, mark the dates for our 2015 VMR Family Fishing Classic on your calendars now and set plans to come along and join in the fun. You never know you might also win some great prizes at the popular VMR Fishing Comp. Remember, you don’t have to weigh in a fish in the fishing competition to be eligible for the lucky draw prizes; just register and be present for the lucky draws during presentations on the Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon of the Classic.
