On current numbers there looks to be at least 8 from up here planning on an assault into the Naki for next year.

Huh, did you make an effort :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

One thing about this comp, is that it doesnt really matter what happens, how you fish etc, etc....its always a lot of fun and those Naki boys sure know how to have fun ;) and run a well organised comp! The best part for me, is still catching up with all of the people you get to see only once a year at this comp. Not that I really like time going by to fast, but roll on Kayak Classic 2013....cant wait!

You wont need 1 if you upgrade to 2 (Stea...) and I can bring 3 down for you as one of my team coming down owns a bait and tackle shop, as for 4...... mmmmm thats out of my area :lol:

I always stay here:

They've been an excellent competition supporter/sponsor :y: , it's only a couple of minutes from competition headquarters, and it's central to the event boundaries. This allows maximum flexibility for comp strategy and to allow for changeable conditions.

If anyone is looking for a place to stay check this out.

We are down Ahuahu Rd in Oakura, a few mins to Butlers Reef for the weigh in, a minute from the ocean for launching your yak. Or a great base for an assault on any north or south spot x's. Was going to bring it up later in the year but since you blokes are booking now, give me a PM for any info you need.

Also, just a heads up, on the TKFC facebook page they have mentioned that there could be a clash with Womad next year, so might want to hold of a little on cementing any bookings just yet.
