I will talk to the team at Toptaste this week and check what time they are going to be open till (normally 3pm). I have mentioned to them already that it would be great if they hung around till 5 or 530 Friday, they also mentioned that they may be there Saturday morning for an hour or 2 so I will follow up on that if it helps, let me know if some of you would be keen for Sat morning service and I can pass this on.
. Just make sure you take cash with you guys as they dont have eft-pos yet. There salt ice comes in 5kg bags and all bait and burly is at wholesale prices. eg 1kg Pillies about $5 burly about $5 also. They have a great selection available :y:

Cheers guys and heres hoping for another great weekend of fishing and catching up with everyone :beer:

Remember to bring your tickets to the registration on Friday night as these go into the barrel for prize draws.

If you haven't already entered and are thinking of doing so, remember the tickets are limited to 250 and we are well on the way with just the early bird tickets - tickets are still rolling in.
Should i have recieved my earlybird ticket by now,
sent my entry down by snailmail 24 th Jan
Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

Kiwi K. No wind here mate. Below 10 knots does not count as wind. Here is a helpful website of actual conditions at port Taranaki.

Hi Guys

Most tickets have been sent out. I haven't sent any from entries that I have received from about mid last week - these will be printed and can be collected on rego night as they might not make it in time.

I have emailed everyone that has had an email address on the entry form, however I have had about 20% bounce back/ undeliverable emails.

If you are unsure please PM me to make sure you are registered.

If for some reason you haven't received your ticket, don't panic, just catch up with me or the girls on Friday night and I'll reprint another before the prize draws.

I hope you all have a great time and good luck everyone for the Comp

Just taking a break from loading the car. I'm heading down tomorrow.
Trouble is I ate something two days ago that I had an allergic reaction to so I'm now covered in a red rash that itches like a b@stard.
Been to the Doctor who gave me all sorts of drugs (said something about steroids but I wasn't listening, too busy scratching.)
Anyway, really looking forward to this one. It's shaping up nicely.
Except the 30lb braid I ordered turned out to be 10lb when it arrived today. :doh:
