Re: Executive Meeting
I really like the idea of a single beach event where all fishers are starting on a level field. Ideally pegging the beach and drawing positions ( two or three different ones in a day) is the answer. Mahanga Beach is one that we have been discussing. There is easy access for everyone and plenty of room so set up a sponsor area and general angler area. Pegging the beach so each angler has the same amount of water (say 50m) for each period (say three hours) and then back to the HQ for a sandwich and a draw for you next spot is not as bad as you may imagine. Anyone could draw a sweet spot and the challenge is to make the most of the area you are allocated. An older or less fit competitor would have an even chance as a fit youngster. Just my thoughts but I know this system is workable.
At least with the above plan it wont just go to the angler who knows a farmer with awesome fishing on his property, or one who is fit enough to climb into untouched spots where the majority of anglers cant. These days it is a substantial investment in time and money to compete at the Nationals. Why would we bother when we know we have little chance of success.
Dick, this is the sort of thing that should at least get discussed.
The snapper don't know where the car park is!
Sometimes it is better to travel than to arrive.
