The Lake Burrendong Easter Fishing Classic has received a huge boost in support, with BCF announcing its major sponsorship of the event in 2019 for the celebration of the 10th annual fishing fundraiser.
BCF Dubbo store manager Shane Glynn met with event organiser’s and said “ it’s an absolute pleasure to support our local OzFish chapter in their 10th year, and help them to continue to improve the health of the local waterways”.
With the event being born out of some big sky dreaming by local Inland Waterways OzFish volunteers 10 years ago, their vision to improve the health of the river soon became a powerhouse fundraising initiative that has seen over half a million dollars raised, hundreds of thousands of fish stocked, and in recent times large scale habitat projects unfold.
The group has also been nationally recognised for its River Repair Bus project, that has seen work for the dole participant’s plant 7,000 trees on the Macquarie River, and remove over 150 trailer loads of rubbish.
With Easter set down for late April, a huge array of prizes will again be on offer, with prizes, donations and cash already rolling in. Over 100 sponsors contributed to the Easter Fishing Classic in 2018, with the volunteer committee again hoping to surpass that figure in its 10th year.
