INTERPORT COMPETITION 2017

The INTERPORT two man/women event and is now operational.
Here is how to compete.

This competition runs from 1st June to 30th September each year.

The INTERPORT COMPETITION is a TWO PERSON EVENT i.e. A team of 2 anglers.

For those who want to enter the competition in the year 2017, this is what you need to do. Remember there are never a vast number of entries.

All your need to do is email recordsofficer@congerclub.org (Paul Maris) and inform him the date you are going fishing, your team members name, and which boat you are fishing from and the port. After the trip you simply phone him the results, with the weights of your best Conger Eels. It's as simple as that!

If your trip is cancelled due to bad weather inform the Records Officer and you may enter again.

Only ONE ENTRY PER TEAM per YEAR IS ALLOWABLE!
