HOOKED AGAIN: Gayndah Anglers have another comp

GAYNDAH Anglers and Fish Stocking Association is hosting its second 'Family and Fishing Fun Day' competition for the year, after the success of its first event in July.

Event organiser Bram McElligott, owner of the Grand Hotel Gayndah, previously told the Times the association was becoming more active after securing new membership and executive.

"After a ripper of a day and so much positive feedback from our first attempt at a competition, we are back at it again,” Mr McElligott said.

"This event as with all our events are open to all ages and angling ability: everyone is welcome.

"This one is even bigger and better than last and will cover a larger area and will include boat and bank fishing.”

Nominations are open now, with forms to be collected from the Grand Hotel.

The nomination forms include information on the competition's inclusion zone.

All nominations will go into the early bird nomination draw if received and paid in full by 5pm tomorrow.

Nomination forms can also be emailed by contacting mh.hotels@bigpond.com.

Single nominations are $10 for members and $15 for non-members, or $15/20 for a family of four.

The competition opens at 7am on Saturday and will close at 3pm on Sunday, with the results announced at a presentation ceremony at the Grand Hotel following a sausage sizzle.
