2008 BLUEWATER CLASSIC TOURNAMENT RESULTS.

Post by Leith Larham » Sun Aug 17, 2008 1:08 am

I Would firstly like to thank this year’s tournament committee, without your support the tournament would not have been as successful as it was, thank you all very much.

Secondly to all the anglers who participated, you were all subject to some pretty rough weather and for those who won a prize they were well deserved. It’s alot harder to bring a fish in to the boat in 30knot winds.

Thirdly the tournament sponsors, thank you to all the business’s that supported the tournament through financial assistance or through the giving of bits a pieces, this is greatly appreciated, the tournament would not be happening without your support.

And learn you shall, hopefully very quickly as it gets pretty expensive replacing tackle all the time. :cry: :cry:

One thing is for sure Shane, you will learn to appreciate the true fighting abilities of a targeted fish. Not only that the satisfaction that you will receive haven given the intended fish a fair chance for its own survival and to beat it on a fair playing field is what it is all about. :D :D

Good Luck,

Cheers Leith
