Things to look forward to 2021-2022 Season.
Our monthly Snapper comp is growing in popularity and provides friendly and good humoured competition between members. It is now a measurement competition, which changes monthly. The current prize is a bottle of Appletons rum.
The clubs most prestigious trophy awarded for a landbased competition is The “Trent Heaford Memorial”. Details will be finalised for venue and dates shortly.
Every year there is a photo competition and we are always looking for shots that encapsulate our sport and Hobby.
