Fun and fish tales at celebration

 
 

Mangawhai fishing club 2016-98
Club secretary Isabel Hollis reports up to 90 current and former members came to meet and greet, wander in and out, renew old aquaintences or stay for the evening at the Mangawhai Boating and Fishing Club’s 50th Anniversary on July 2.


The get-together was held at the Mangawhai Tavern which was also the site of the inauguration of the club.

“It was great to see a number of old members still proud to display their pins from prize-winning fish,” said Isabel.

Following her introduction, current president Buck Buchanan shared some of the history of the club from past to present, momentous occasions and changes within the club over the years.

Howard Hill also addressed the gathering. Howard is believed to be the last remaining member of the first committee from February 1966.

Guest speaker was Grant Dixon, editor of NZ Fishing News, the country’s longest running fishing magazine and a master fisherman himself.

The group enjoyed a sumptuous buffet dinner prepared by Tavern staff and as the evening progressed the fish tales got longer and the fish tails got bigger, but a great time was had by all.

FRIENDSHIPS: Rolling back the years, from left, Bruce Beale, Ian Cameron, Buck Buchanan, Dawn Powell, Terry Newdick, and Pip Beaven.
