9 – 10 June (NSW Long-weekend); Pandanus Pde, Cabarita Beach NSW.
Yes, we are back. After another year out of action, the Competition is back for its 31st year with a major sponsor ($9000 boat package), revised boundaries and other minor changes that will open the competition to new entrants.
Our focus is to continue to support the Greenback Fishing Competition and we can only achieve this with volunteers and our sponsors.
This competition is all about the Fishing and the Big Prizes on offer this year. There are new prize levels and increases in prize money/goods across the categories with a prize pool of ~ $30,000.
WHAT GOES ON THE BIG DAY
Weigh-In is Sunday, June 10 6:30-9:00am (with drop-off 6am to 8:15am). The Cabarita Beach Surf Life Saving Club will be cooking breakfast for all those weary fishing families. They can sit back while the sponsor acknowledgements and prize presentations are made. After the presentations, we will be running a Fish Auction where those that did not secure their own have the opportunity to buy some fresh fish. There will be Markets to the west of the Surf Club and live activities for the youngsters. If people wish to enjoy an alcoholic beverage they may do so at the Surf Club or the Cabarita Beach Hotel. The Foreshore area remains a glass and alcohol-free area and will be patrolled by NSW Police. The closing of the event (~1pm) will follow the drawing of the major raffle prizes where 1st prize is the Tweed Coast Marine and Mercury $9000 boat package.
