Would love to come up Leith'l but as per normal my shift roster prohibits! Never had a chance while I was in Hedland and looks like it will be 2008..... Maybe!

Hello "barra_on_fly" ?

you can always take some annual leave!! :D

Besides it looks as though we may have been succesful in negotiating a Boat, Motor and trailer package to give away as a prize. Even more of an incentive to come up. 8)

Cheers Leith.

What no Barra Classic!!!!

So does that mean you miss out on an invitation for next year?

Mate with the fantastic barra season we have just had, you could run a similar Barra competition out of Hedland. :idea:

I have been assured that because of circumstances and early withdrawl it shouldn't affect next years invite.
I would be devastated!!
Heard you guys had it better than us this year. As for a tournament like the Classic, the infastructure and amount of fish able water would make it a logistical nightmare!
