Waikanae Boating Club Top Angler 
Well done to all contestants that entered the Waikanae Boating Club Top Angler competition. I would once again like to thank all of you who have supported the competition and hope to see you re-enter for the next 6-month period.
Thanks must go to our naming right sponsor Westbury Pharmacy, and I would also like to acknowledge Boat City who have come on board meaning our prize pool is larger than expected.
As a result, I have added a prize for top female angler which will continue being part of the competition moving forward. I will also add a third prize for the next 6-month period.
Please note the prize values may change for the next period as the prize pool is relative to the number of entries we receive.
1st Place – Michael Browne who receives $600.00 worth of Boat City vouchers, a small trophy to keep and of course his name etched on the new trophy which will remain in the cabinet at the club.
2nd Place – Jake Reilly who receives $400.00 worth of Boat City vouchers.
Average – Steve Kelly who receives $250.00 worth of Boat City vouchers.
Top Female – Lyn Williams who receives $250.00 worth of Boat City vouchers.

Marine Reserve

In the last few issues we've provided reminders about the value of the Kapiti Marine Reserve in regenerating fish stocks and protecting our marine environment.
As our members may be aware, that success is encouraging illegal fishing and DoC is doing little to stop it.
We have taken the initiative in mobilising all the boating, fishing, diving clubs in our area to write to the Minister and Prime Minister and the letter can be found on the "click to Read" button

Note From The Tower

The tower will be manned again from the beginning of October through until the end of May 2023.
It will be manned on all weekends and Public holidays. Plus each day from Boxing Day 2022 until February 06 (Waitangi Weekend) 2023 on days suitable for boating.
Remember the volunteers in the tower give their time to watch out for boaties so make use of them on CH77. There will also be a monthly prize draw for callers to the tower. 

Special Note: for members who launch their boat with their own vehicle or tractor make sure that you continue to give all the details of your boat, trailer and vehicle to the club each year so that in an emergency someone can be contacted.
