MENS SHED BOAT REGATTA SUNDAY APRIL 14 From 10am near the Swing Bridge
The yachts are built, and the date is set for the Lorne Men’s Shed Regatta.
We are proud to be sponsoring the event.
The model T37 yachts have been built by the Shedders and they are practicing their sailing skills near the swing bridge every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between 3 and 4pm. Spectators are more than welcome.
There will also be a motorised racing boat event.

LORNE LAWN BOWLS CHALLENGE TUESDAY MAY 7th at 5pm 
Congratulations to the Lorne Bowls Club who had 3 teams competing in the district competition and amazingly all 3 teams won their respective grand finals.
We are on fire here in Lorne at the moment with the bowlers now joining our local footy team as the reigning premiers.
We are also the premier Angling Club in Country Victoria with more members and fishing competitions than any of the others.
I have issued a challenge to the bowls club for a one-night competition which they have accepted.
The date is set and I’ve recruited a crack team to represent the Anglers with over 30 players signed on. I reckon the ‘’Cup Cakes’’ at the bowls club don’t stand a chance.
There will be a barbecue and refreshments available on the night.

World Sausage Roll Championships.
On the Queen’s Birthday long weekend we are holding the inaugural ‘’World Sausage Roll Championships”
Entries are now open but hurry.
We don’t want any of our judging panel to die from overeating so we will have to limit the number of entries.
We are also having a condiment competition for the best homemade Relish, Chutney and Tomato Sauce.
You can enter by dropping into the club and filling out an entry form or you can email me at ; keith.miller@live.com.au with your contact details.

RECENT EVENTS

MAJOR FISHING COMPETITION Number 2
We held our second Major fishing competition for the year on March 10th which was the Sunday of the Labour Day long weekend.
The weather was perfect so we had a lot of competitors. I counted 22 boat trailers which is easily the most I’ve ever seen here.
There were plenty of fish caught and the big news was that for the first time ever we had two kingfish weighed in which is very exciting.
As usual after the prizes were awarded and everyone enjoyed a beautiful roast lunch which is now free to all competing Anglers.
The senior winner was Joel Norton with a Kingfish 4150 points.
Second was Harley Davies also with a kingy a tad smaller than Joel’s 3940 points.
Third was our reigning club champion Andrew Clarke with a snapper 2680 points.
In the Junior section the winner was Daisy Lodge with a Mackerel 2880 points.
Second was Zane Lodge with a snapper 2390 points and third was Jack Addison with a flathead 2330 points.


Tom Dawson with 5 kingfish and a Tuna caught by himself and Kaide Love off Lorne recently.

LIVE MUSIC 
On the evening after our fishing comp on the Sunday of the long weekend we had our local rock legend Ron Hollmer and his band perform live at the club. The weather was perfect and a good size crowd rocked the night away and a great time was had by all.
