Call for fishing comp stewards
Horsham Fishing Competition organisers are calling on more groups or individuals to put their hands up to be stewards at the annual Labour Day weekend event.
While a significant team is primed for the March 10 gathering on the Wimmera River, organisers are about 20 stewards short of what’s needed to run the event successfully.
Committee spokesman and stalwart Kevin Dellar said an invitation was open to clubs, groups or individuals to take part.
He said financial reward was available for stewards and putting a hand up to be a steward was a great opportunity to raise money for a club or organisation.
“Clubs such as Jung Tigers Cricket Club have done it for years, raising much of the money they need to run a club for the year in one hit. But we need a few more to come forward,” he said.
“The competition is always judged by our stewards, who spend the day working closely with the anglers.”
Mr Dellar said people keen to put up their hand needed to come forward at a least a week before the competition.
“We usually hand out kits and run through duties on the Wednesday night before the contest, so we need them to come forward before then,” he said.
He said people could call him at Barbecues Galore in Horsham on 5382 1541 to sign up or to find out more about being a steward.
