MERRA have chosen this year to replace the annual cricket match with a residents’ fishing competition. When we say competition, it’s more about a community get together with, yes, a prize for biggest fish (and we encourage a catch and release policy for large fish, so a photo will suffice). But we ask that you submit your catch for filleting so we can then hold a fish barbecue with contestants and your boat guests at Scotts Beach. There will be spot prizes (so it’s not just about biggest and best) and the barbecue will be a simple one, complemented by produce from the community garden.
This is a single day competition, with more detail to be provided on how to enter and the rules of engagement in due course.
The date set for the day is Saturday 14 March 2020.
