Preparations for the 25th anniversary of the Challenge are well under way. Prizes are being organized and allocated to various categories and final planning is in place. Our major sponsor Wilson is providing a prize for every junior entrant as well some excellent prizes for the event. The comp will be held on 3-5th June.
There will also be lots of great prizes donated by our other sponsors. Now in its 25th year, the Challenge continues to provide a competition for competitor’s whether they are serious hard core fishos or novices just having a bit of fun and hoping to win one of the many prizes available. The major prize for seniors is a Sea Jay 4.25 Magnum 2 boat supplied by Stones Corner Marin and wrapped by Bonzagrafics.
Junior’s prize is two kayaks and a $500 gift card donated by BCF Capalaba. Competitors don’t even have to weigh in a fish to be eligible to win, as both prizes are lucky draws. There are also lots of prizes up for grabs for the daily pick of the board, daily magazine draw, business card draw and one for the most distance travelled to attend the event. There are categories catering for Senior’s, Ladies’, Junior’s, catch and release Flathead, Secret Weight and a Grand Slam competition for both Inshore and Offshore.
Several raffles will be held over the week end including a 110L Waeco esky full of prizes drawn on the last day. The Challenge bar will be opened for drinks after a hard days fishing and entertainment will be available for the kids.
