Fish­ing fun fiz­zles

Western Times - - NEWS -

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.”
