We would recommend you visit the club’s website, www.royalmotor.com.au to familiarise yourself with the Club’s facilities and activities.Whilst we have a significant amount of fishing know how and talent within our membership, the Club’s continued success and future is very much dependent in ensuring that this knowledge and skills are passed on to new members, particularly juniors.
To assist the assimilation of new members into both the social and competitive club activities we hold our Club meetings at 7.30 pm on the first Wednesday evening of each month in the Club’s Horseshoe Cove Room. Game fishing has four angling categories, Male (over 16) Lady (over 16), Junior (under 16) and Small Fry (under 11) and all are welcome in our competitions and at our meetings.
This meeting provides members with the opportunity to socialise and be updated on Club developments and activities. Many members meet for dinner around 6 pm in the Club’s bistro with family and friends prior to the meeting. Each meeting usually hosts a key guest speaker to discuss a varying range of topics relevant to boating, angling and game fishing competition. This program, over a period of time, provides an ongoing forum for existing and new members to enhance their knowledge, skills and competitive edge in successful game fishing.
