Mayor of Gympie Regional Council presenting the Neil Finney Memorial Award to Jeff Prout and Elaine Klienhanss
By the time this article goes to press 2022 will be drawing to an end and we will be nearly at the beginning of the new year – 2023. I hope that you all had a chance to wet a line over the Christmas period and also got to spend some time with family and friends enjoying their company.
In my last article I mentioned that the Club was to hold its annual Christmas party and end of year awards presentation and I mentioned a few awards that were presented knowing that by the time the December article came out the awards would be public knowledge.
One award that I kept quiet about was the Neil Finney Memorial Award given to a club member/s who just get on with it and do what’s needed.
I had great pleasure in putting forward Elaine Kleinhanss and Jeff Prout for this award due to their contribution to the running of this club. The Mayor of the Gympie Regional Council Glen Hartwig presented the award to Elaine and Jeff.
On the fishing front the mangrove Jack seem to on the chew, and there are still some good flathead and whiting being caught.
Don’t forget to get out there and wet a line if that’s your thing, go for a boat ride or stick your head under water and have a look around, but above all spend some time with family and make some time for yourself during what’s left of the Christmas/New Year break.
