Major sponsor (Dive HQ, AMF Boat Co, Kilwell, Taranaki Hunting & Fishing, Hydraulink Taranaki Ltd and Almondie Distribution) have been confirmed for the 2011 event along with AMF’s regular support from some very generous suppliers and supporters adding to the prize pool.
The local organizers have again generously offered a communal camp site with facilities and a bus to the club rooms and back each night. This is a well organized event making it a breeze for the entrants to enjoy their weekend with the AMF team and mix with other AMF owners.
Last years event saw many fish caught, many laughs had with Derek the Chef, a hangi put on at the AMF camp site by team Ngawha for everyone and a great deal of AMF team spirit enjoyed by all who attended from far and wide - from Havelock (ocean going trip made by Caroline Rose and her crew) to Whangarei (road trip by Ian, AKA Mac, and his mad crew) and yes there is a prize for the furtherest travelled!
There was also a prize for Paul Laugesen who took out a strainer post at the camp ground with his boat trailer, Paul is now the proud owner of the said post!
There are plenty of locals to guide you in the right direction to get to the right spots around Taranaki, that goes for divers as well as those fishing.
So if you own an AMF get in touch with the administration team at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and book your spot for the 18-19th March 2011 and get fishing in some serious West Coast blue water along with fun and laughter at the New Plymouth Game Fishing club rooms.
