Family Recreational Fishing Club - Jabiru, Northern Territory

KIDS FISHING FUN DAY

We held for the first time an event for the kids. This was held on Saturday 9th August 2014. It was a huge success.

About 30 kids nominated for the event and it was held at Cooinda on Yellow Waters. It was great to see a huge turnout. Boats were on the water by 10am and off by 3pm. The kids all received a competitors bag. Most families camped the night at Cooinda and we had a BBQ dinner, followed by a movie and a BBQ breakfast the next morning.

We set up around the pool at Cooinda after the event so the kids could have a swim, have a go at the casting comp and then the presentation followed. All the kids who participated received a certificate of participation. Prizes were awarded for the day on the water.

A few big barra were caught but lost near the boat.

The AFC would like to thank the following Sponsors that made this event happen: Cooinda Lodge, Jabiru Foodland, BP Jabiru and ERA.

We would also like to thank Chef Justin Gould and Liam Kilcullen for cooking the BBQ.

A huge Thanks to the Families for coming along, supporting the club and making the event a huge success. 

Our next major event is the Alligator Fishing Club Challenge which is open to all ages and nominations close Sunday 31st August 2014.
