2020 Fishing and Dive Competition: COVID-19 Update
It is with huge disappointment that the Patea & Districts Boating Club Committee announces the cancellation of the 2020 Patea Fishing Competition due to COVID-19.
This was not an easy call to make but the Committee reached the decision that the safety of our club members and their guests was the main priority. The Committee also considered the social responsibility to the wider community in general and decided that taking any and all possible steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 was just the right thing to do.
The Committee would like to thank all the sponsors and volunteers for their generosity and on-going support of this competition. In the coming days, members of the Committee will be in direct contact with all sponsors who donated money and goods as prizes, food, refreshments and services.
The Committee would also like to thank all the club members and their guests who entered the competition. Those who have paid their entry fees will be refunded in due course. Please be patient, it appears that dismantling the competition is as bigger an undertaking as organising it.
Once again, the Committee would like to express their disappointment in having to make this decision, we are all fisho’s as well and the Patea competition is one of the highlights of the year.
Take care, tight lines and we hope to see you all on the water for the 2021 Patea Fishing Competition
From the Patea & District Boating Club Committee
