The combined Lions Doubtless Bay Fishing Competition will be held at Taipa on Anniversary Weekend, January 28/29, 2012.
Good progress is being made in organising this highly-regarded event, and all Lions from Mangonui, Kaingaroa and Kaitaia will be playing a role. In a departure from the usual maritime-related recipients, the fishing contest committee has voted to make Far North Hospice the beneficiary of the 2012 competition.
Major prizes so far include a 50 inch Panasonic widescreen television set and a ride-on mower, but the Lions are seeking as much sponsorship as possible for the event. The fishing contest is by far the biggest on the Far North Lions calendar, and hugely benefits local business. We intend to make it the best one yet.
