This year's Blu Heelers Charity Fishing Tournament has raised $20,040 for Hospice Mid-Northland.
There was a record number of anglers this year - 192 with 65 boats registered. The anglers coming from all over New Zealand. A huge list of very generous sponsors for this tournament - we can't thank-you enough for your generosity.
Held at the Swordfish Club in Paihia over 3 days, the competition is down by measure which ensures plentiful stocks of fish remain to ensure fishing for the future. A small portion was donated for the fish and crayfish auction which raised a significant portion to this final figure.
Thank-you to the Blu Heelers Committee, 4 very dedicated members who work tirelessly to ensure this tournament runs smoothly and maximum money is raised. Dianne and Richard Quinn, Cliff Metcalfe and Rhys Dempster..Thank-you!!
We are so thrilled to be nominated again for next year!
