This program we saw 1287 children attend an event with 876 parents or carers assisting and 311 coaches and
instructors. Events were held from one end of the state to the other. Some of these locations were Moreton Island,
Bribie Island, Hayes Inlet, Raby Bay, Wivenhoe Dam, Cabbage Tree Creek, Caloundra, Burketown, Cloncurry, Mt. Isa,
Dawson River, Paradise Dam, Kearney Springs, Broadwater, Quart Pot Creek, Mareeba, Townsville and Roma Street
Parklands. It was a great year with respect to favourable weather and attendance. It was also encouraging to see
new organizations running events.
Feedback from attendees, parents, carers, coaches and instructors was unanimously supportive and constructive. In
that vein I need to forward on the thanks to Fisheries Queensland and the Minister that were directed through us on
the value of this program to their communities.
