Baptist Church Fishing Club awards night

Last night was the BCFC annual awards presentation night. It was a fantastic family evening held at the Riverway in Townsville. Beginning at about 3pm with a swim, we then had a BBQ dinner and presentations. Everything was going great until the storm hit part way into the presentations. A quick retreat to shelter and the proceedings continued.

Not everyone would be interested in all the results, but I though I would present the results for the three contributors to this site (Ward, Dion and myself).

Dion, being the wonderful bloke that he is, won the very prestigious 'Fishing Mate of the Year' award. This was presented to Dion for all his efforts in the club and overall willingness to put other people ahead of himself. Dion is always taking other members of the club out in his boat, and his efforts are very much appreciated by all.

Ward took out two divisions this year. Firstly, he too the top 10 division. Ward managed to capture 9 of his nominated 10 species for the year. This is a great credit to him, as all his captures have been on fly.

Secondly, Ward took the trophy for the 'Catch and Release' division. Ward is a good fisherman, and is more than happy to let the majority of his catch go. Even the keepers! It would be great to see this category grow in future years.

And lastly, I managed to receive the overal Champion Angler for 2009.

Thanks to everyone who attended last night. And a big thanks to the committe for 2008. We look forward to a great year in 2009.
