Fishing club fun at dam
Annual meeting and angling a winning weekend combination
MEMBERS of the Biggenden Amateur Fishing Club combined a weekend of fishing with the club’s annual meeting at Boondooma Dam.
The weather was perfect for fishing and it proved to be a very rewarding weekend for many of the members.
Junior angler Johanna Kelly snagged a 41cm golden perch.
And she had the biggest smile out of everyone!
The club had a busy and productive year, in both fishing and fundraising.
The successful fundraising for the year enabled the club to donate $500 to Rotary Lodge House in Bundaberg; $200 to Biggenden Amateur Swimming Club and $250 to Paradise Stocking Association.
The fundraising also helped the club to run and host its Anglers Educational Fishing Days for Kids in the community each year.
A monster Christmas raffle will be drawn on December 21 and will be the club’s last fundraising venture for the year.
Tickets can be bought at a number of business houses in Biggenden.
The Biggenden Amateur Fishing Club thanked the public and businesses for their generous support throughout the year.
