Dart Cup Yamaha Fishing Classic 2014 will be held on 6-9 June. Now in its 20th year, the competition is run over the three days of the Queens Birthday weekend, starting on the Friday.
Weigh-ins are scheduled for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon, with a live weigh in on the Friday and Saturday at the boat ramp. Each day will have winners of the best species and best live weigh in.
The Club Team Championship is the best 10 trout caught over the two days, club/teams are now limited to 15 competitors each. There is also a junior competition.
The boat motor and trailer will be won by a draw on the presentation night. Any competitor, who catches a trout and weighs it in, is in the running for the boat, motor and trailer sponsored by Border Marine, Yamaha and Stacer.
Again this year we are taking pre registrations, which puts competitors in the draw for the second boat, motor and trailer. Pre registrations close on 1 June 2014. Increased advertising of the competition on television, newspaper and radio, and now online registrations, have all helped to boost the comp’s profile.
They have also added a carp weigh in station at the boat ramp at the breakfast tent run by Len Coggan. You can weigh in your carp at any time over the weekend from Friday through to Sunday midday. Extra prizes will be awarded to the biggest carp bag (maximum of 10) per day and the biggest amount of carp for a club over the weekend. Also the biggest carp caught by an individual each day.
Sponsors draw is on the Saturday night with over 60 prizes up for grabs and you don’t have to catch a fish to win a prize in this draw. The numbers draw will be held over and on display for collection until Sunday at 7pm. Any prizes not collected at this time will be redrawn at the end of the presentation night.
