Mallacoota Round 7 Rescheduled – PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE

Mallacoota Round Rescheduled To Oct 19 20

We understand the disappointment this may cause for each and every angler who was eagerly looking forward to the BERLEYPRO / FISH-TEC SOLUTIONS MALLACOOTA event scheduled for this weekend. Your participation is highly valued, and we are deeply sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

The decision to postpone the event was not taken lightly. The potential impact of severe / gale force winds in the region has led the team at HOBIE FISHING to make this advanced decision. We are not weather experts, but the safety of our participants is our top priority. The unique structure of the Mallacoota systems, heavily impacted by the force of the specific forecast SW winds, has made this the most prudent course of action.

We may be right / we may be wrong, though, in good conscience, I am far more concerned about the financial impact on Angler for having taken the time to travel and time away from work and family with the predictions for conditions that under our insurance we could not hold the event in any case. Holding a 4-5-hour session on Saturday morning is not a tournament.

We have spoken with several of the accommodation providers to give some advance notification, and all have otherwise confirmed the ability to move without fee or cancel with a minimum processing fee of $35 (Foreshore Park).

Our proposed reschedule will be OCTOBER 19/20th, subject to final confirmation.

My personal apologies for any direct negative impact on you because of this decision.

Considering the circumstances, we are offering the following options regarding your current Mallacoota entry:

  1. Keep your place in the queue and have us migrate your entry to the weekend of Oct 19-20.
  2. Have your entry administratively moved to the Gold Coast or the Forster round.
  3. Receive a penalty-free refund.
