This program we saw 1374 children attend an event with 776 parents or carers assisting and 321 coaches and instructors. We have now seen 30 events run across Moreton Island, Caloundra, Croydon, Georgetown, Toowoomba Barra Farm, Lake Cooby, Charters Towers, Camooweal, Julia Creek, Mt. Isa, Tin Can Bay, Paradise Dam, Bribie Island, Wivenhoe, Deception Bay, Roma St Parklands, Callide Dam, Southport, Quart Pot Creek, Raby Bay, Hayes Inlet, Paradise Point and Dawson River. As you can see they cover saltwater and freshwater and range from south east Queensland to the far north, the Gulf and the west.
The events run have been located across the length and breadth of the State and have also penetrated into most socio-economic groups.
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.
