Call for fish­ing comp stew­ards

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
