Bream Grand Final Info Please

Post by DaveW » Wed Oct 21, 2009 6:00 pm

We're pretty much a week away from being on the water.

1) Where is the briefing?
2) Where is the start?

Thanks.

It's on your invitation info sheet.

In short it's all at Darling Harbour.

All anglers will be called on Mon & Tue to confirm and give details of briefing.

For those that aren't aware, as you pass Balmain East on the way in to Darling Harbour be careful, from the Ferry Wharf it is all 8 knot zone and as that area is near the Waterways base they are always around.

Just a heads, up but be aware of your speed in and out.

Thankyou.

As usual Simon a response that gives an answer yet doesn't answer the question.

On my invitiation sheet it says "staged at the iconic Darling Harbour" No mention of a start point, yet it does say weigh in "Darling Harbour".

I would hate to make an assumtion about the start point as it seems that every time this year I have made an assumption about an ABT ruling based on past history I've been wrong.

It also says briefing location TBA. This doesn't look like an answer to me.

It's always good to see the ABT Tournament Director take questions seriously and give a thoughtful, succinct response that leaves no question unanswered.

Am I allowed to ask just how many Boaters get to fish the Sunday, or is this another answer I seem to have missed? I'd hate to assume anything.

Thankyou very much Simon, clears up any uncertainty.

Thought you might have missed it so I'll ask again:

How many boaters are fishing the Sunday?

Thanks in advance.

Dave,

To be fair to Simon, I've told them not to announce that until the briefing night.

As we're not filming the event this year, it'll definitely be more than the four that we ran with last year.

We were thinking either 10 - like a Super Series or even 20. It'll be a balance between cutting the field and putting on a show that'll give us value for the bazillion dollars we're spending for the privilege of running the show in Darling Harbour.

I'm leaning towards 20 ATM.

Give us a call if you need it discussed further.

Cheers,

SM

Hopefully the extra expense of running it at Darling Harbour will be mean greater exposure for the sport. I hope it all goes well for all concerned and good luck for all those who have qualified.
Cheers

Thanks for that Steve - appreciate your input.

From an anglers perspective top 3-4 v top 10 (or 20) can change tactics significantly.

Same goes for things like start and finish places, even where the briefing is can impact pre-fish times for those of us not staying close to the water.

Jay, The Kissing point ramp is in the suburb of Putney. Street names nearby are Morrison Rd and DeLange Rd. Put into your GPS and it should take you right to the water. Bring a pen and you can make a time and date on the back of the mens toilet door.

Wardy.
