Club Trips and Activities

Club nights

August club night: Tuesday the 22nd.

The Annual Club Auction. Early start, the doors will open at 6:30 pm, with start time for the auction at 7:00 pm. 

Time to start gathering up auctionable items to donate to the Annual Club Auction. Remember, one person’s rubbish is another’s auction purchase! This is our one and only fundraiser for the year, so cast your nets far and wide to gather up some treasures. We already have a great collection of donated fishing gear from members who are no longer able to do so. Items are certainly not limited to fishing gear so dig deep and clear out a long neglected space to donate goods. Members – bring a guest, and prospective members are welcome to attend. 


Club trips

September 15th – 17th: Sea fishing trip at Kaikoura
We have booked accomdation at the Kaikoura Dive Club Lodge. We expect three or four boats going, and there are plenty of other activities to enjoy at Kaikoura. Remember that salmon are already being caught off the beach, behind the railway station. We have room for more, so if your interested give Gary Batchelor a call.

September the 24th: Take a Kid Fishing
This is also the month that we offer our support to the Annual Take a Kid Fishing event at the Groynes. For those who have helped out here in the past, you’ll know how rewarding it is to be a part of this event. If your interested in helping, put your name in the event book at club night, or give Fred van Slooten a call.

October 6th – 8th: Richard Marles Challenge, Otematata
This is second most popular trip on our calendar. We have booked accomdation at the Valley Lodge – same place we used for Alf Palmer weekend. There will be plenty of boats going down, with room for more fisher people on board. The edge fishing in October can be stunning as well. If your interested in going, put your name in the event book at club night.
