With strong wind warnings for Port Phillip Bay for the entire weekend the Club was unable to run the Gala Comp this year. This was disappointing as a lot of preparations had been made to ensure that the 2016 Gala Comp would be successful. Some people did fish early on the Saturday morning before the winds increased and there was some nice fish caught. However these catches could not be recorded as part of the Gala Comp.
The planned dinner on the Saturday night went ahead and was well attended by BMYS members and by visitors from participating clubs. Club Chef Armin Pfister provided a most enjoyable meal.
Prizes for the Gala Comp were ‘won’ via a nominated ‘secret weight’ competition.
A big raffle was also conducted on the night with some attractive prizes on offer.
The weekend concluded with a Sunday morning breakfast at the Club.
Particular thanks are due to Fishing Director, David Bell and the Club Fishing Committee for their conduct of the event and also to BMYS members and visiting Clubs for their support.
The weather has to be better next year!
