Australian Anglers Association, (WA Division) Inc.
2004/5 State Rock and Beach Angling Championships.
The Australian Angler's Association ran its State Rock and Beach Championships for 2004-2005 year from Cape to Cape with the boundaries set as Busselton Jetty to Blackwood River.
The Management of the Yallingup Beach Holiday Park offered the use of their facilities for the event's Headquarters and also sponsored a prize of a chalet for two nights. The organising committee is grateful for the use of the facilities and recommends the high class facilities right on the beach front at Yallingup.
Seventy one participants from eight clubs registered. This is a typical participation for a State Beach event. A promotional book 2004/5 Rock & Beach Championships Booklet (1,274 kilobyte PDF file) was printed and distributed widely to AAA affiliated clubs. This contains full details of the arrangements for this event.
The contingent from the Naturaliste Game and Sportsfishing Club were a welcome addition to the participating clubs.
Many thanks to the organising committee for their work and the participants who made it all happen.
