3000 bass to be released

3000 bass to be released

The 2006 Bass Classic has been run and won. More details will be available next week but we do know that 83 competitors took part and over 500 bass were caught and released. The event has cleared over $1500 for restocking the Richmond River system. Each bass costs 50 cents, meaning the event will pay for 3000 more fish. Anyone wishing to support this effort, as each competitor did, can drop a donation into Suffolks Outdoor Sports at 155 Keen Street, Lismore, and a receipt will be issued.

Forty seven prizes were awarded in all. Many thanks to all our sponsors, who we will be acknowledging personally in coming days. The only change for next year will be that the three major prizes will have to be collected personally or by a named proxy.

Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
