Fishing fun fizzles
CHARLEVILLE Fishing And Restocking Club’s mega family fun day was poorly attended, leaving the club president Alan McKenna a bit disappointed.
Two months of planning won just two stalls and a modest attendance of just a few dozen.
Alan put it down to a “lack of interest”.
“Some of it’s got to do with (parents travelling to Quilpie for the football),” Mr McKenna said.
“We advertised it enough. They just don’t seem to be supporting us.”
The fishing and restocking club relied on income from the family fun day to pay for new fingerlings to restock the river.
Now they need to do other fundraising to make up the shortfall.
“It’s a lot more work,” Mr McKenna said.
“We put a lot of work in.”
Attendees did enjoy face painting, games and a great bar.
“You’ve got to try or you don’t get anywhere,” he said.
“Next time we’ll probably put it on the Sunday instead of Saturday.”
THEY HAD MEGA FUN: Chloe King, Emily Frost, Michelle King and Chloe Williams at the fishing fun day on the weekend.
