Calamari Classic 2018

The popular Calamari Classic, presented by Anglers Fishing World, has spread its wings and will be held at the Cockburn Power Boats Association on Saturday,March 10 in 2018.

Organisers are preparing to stage the largest event ever from the new location as the three categories of competition will benefit from the new format.
It’s a one-stop shop. Power boat squidders can simply launch and then park adjacent to the prize giving and after-party.

Kayakers can launch in protected waters and within a few strokes be patrolling over productive squid banks while land base competitors will have the most convenient spots to operate within walking distance of the venue.

Organisers have kept the entry fee to a modest $25 but its money well spent because it entitles the competitors to:
• a complimentary dinner back at the club house
• bouncy castle for the kids back at the club
• lively after party with live music by International music sensation Monty Cotton

As well as over $5,000 in prizes for all three divisions, a major announcement will be made early in 2018 which will grab the attention of prospective contestants.

Competition organisers and the Cockburn Club have all bases covered when it comes to catering for visitors because the club will allow people to sleep on their trailer boats, enabling them to party on after the event.

Moorings and pens for visiting larger boats will also be available, so crews can enjoy the celebrations without the worry of navigating back to their base.

Registrations are open NOW at the competition website www.calamariclassic.com.au

Payment

Fri, 2017-12-29 20:41

Hi, we have tried to make it as simple to pay possible by setting up on line registration and bank transfer

If you really need to pay in person you need to download the printable entry form take it to Cockburn or bring it to me and pay cash. As we have no EFTPOS facilities.
I think online is far easier

Any problems my mobile number is on the event site please give me a call and we will try to find a solution that works for you
Regards, David

Hi, we need people to register before the event because of catering. its a big event to set up, so if we know how many are coming it really helps us.
my suggestion is register your boat and 2 of you, then a week out you can always drop me a line if you need to add people.

Large boats?

Tue, 2018-02-20 14:45

 David

Not sure if it was you I spoke to on the phone today.  I'm keen to fish this with the kids but my boat is not trailerable, and so I'll need a place to tie-up in the morning and afternoon if we are to participate.

I've put in my entry form but I'm holding off on payment until I can confirm what is available.

Cheers
