The postponed BERMAGUI BLUEWATER CLASSIC will now be taking place in March. THE SAME WEEKEND AS ALLIANCE (Long weekend for Victoria and ACT)
YES, you can fish 2 Tournaments on the same weekend. Alliance Clubs have agreed to BBGAC running their BWC tournament in parallel to their Tournament out of Bermagui. In response to their generous cooperation please support their 2 day Tag and Release Tournament. (only an extra $30 p/p and Juniors//Small Fry are free)
The aim of this year’s BWC tournament continues to be to support Bermagui's business community which has been brought to its knees by the January bushfires. Bermagui has only small businesses based on tourism and fishing. The busy town you know has been a ghost town for the past month -the peak trading time for the year. Tourists are very slowly returning but not in the numbers that usually came in January.
Thanks to our wonderful supporters we are able to offer a prize pool to competitors similar to other years. We also have $13000 on offer for the heaviest marlin over 190kg.
We will have raffle, auction and lucky angler.
During our recent bushfire crisis, the Bermagui Country Club operated as an evacuation centre housing displaced families who could not go home due to evacuation notifications or had lost their homes. It was also used as the RFS Command Centre. As a result, during this time the Bermagui Country Club was unable to conduct normal trade and provided the food, drink and amenities to the general public at a significant cost to their business and finances.
The committee and members of the Bermagui Big Game Anglers Club wished to donate our tournament profits to somewhere local where 100% of the funds goes to the recipient and community. It was, therefore, decided that in keeping with our aim, we would like to donate the profits from the tournament to the Bermagui Country Club.
In order for us to be successful, we need your participation. So come visit our wonderful town and community, stay, eat, be merry and hopefully catch a fish or two.
Entry Forms and Rules for both Tournaments can also be found on our website www.bbgac.com.au
