Get ready to catch the Snapper Classic comp

THE Dave Irvine Memorial Snapper classic will be held on June 8-9.

Last year's event saw more than 200 anglers competing in the most prestigious event of this nature, where all snapper caught are released.

All competitors were surveyed after the event, the biggest complaint particularly from visiting competitors was the state of the boat ramp and in particular its dangerous nature.

It is now 12 months on and while they may not see any physical difference in the state of the boat ramp it is important for us to remind them that behind the scenes the working party is hard at working and have started to make it happen.

Entry forms for this event are available online and at the clubhouse.
