*Victorian Anglers please note that whilst we hope that current COVID restriction should be relaxed by the weekend Oct 24-25 in the event they are not and Victorians cannot travel a decision will be made that will be fair for all. In the event of Stage 4 restrictions still in place and not being able to fish a refund will be issued. This will also apply to other states if restrictions are brought in. This is an individual event and all local social distancing rules must be adhered to.
IMPORTANT!! When entering address details for participants, please ensure you enter the COMPLETE ADDRESS, including street number, suburb, state & postcode. This is critical, as it ensures we have the correct details on file and can post brag mats to each participant. Without this complete address, we will not be able to send brag mats.
