WHAT A DAY!

By October 24, 2016Blog

A hugely successful club open day, held at Buffalo Stadium at Woodend VIC on Sunday! The committee would like to thank all the presenters, sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers, members and general public for making the day truly memorable.

Approximately 300 people, both new to the game and old hands, came through the door.

Thank you to David Anderson twigwater.com for the images and observations.

The day started brightly with a really informative presentation by Ross Virty Virt of Kaos cod flys.
