It's all go at Snapper HQ. Behind-the-scenes planning has been well under way for many months. Final sponsorship negotiations are nearing completion, so we should have some more exciting announcements over the coming weeks.

Co-ordinator this year, Gail Rostig, may be new to the position, but is an old snapper comp hand, having worked with the team some years ago.

On-line entries can now be lodged via our website, or if you prefer, you can download hard-copy forms and either post or fax them to the snapper office.

In the meantime, further traditional hard-copy forms, flyers and posters will be out and about before the end of the month.

All sections of the website are gradually being updated so check back from time to time for the latest info.

Regular competitors can expect the 24 th championship to be run similar to previous popular events with the usual 100-plus prizes, snapper categories and other species.

Nevertheless, Gail and her team will be introducing some additional initiatives to add that extra bit of interest to the event.

These include:

•  Two Top 10 Leader Boards - one for visitors and one for locals to ensure the importance of visitors to Whyalla is recognised - with the overall Top 10 winners combined from these.

•  More random draws.

•  An atmosphere packed Thursday night on the eve of the comp with entertainment, a special briefing session and a return to the taking of late entries when the championship marquee opens at 5pm.

Gail and her team are working hard to ensure all visitors enjoy both Whyalla and the snapper championship.
