Vacant positions threaten future of Boyne Tannum Hook Up

THE future of the Boyne Tannum Hook Up has entered murky waters.

The annual fishing competition draws tens of thousands of people from across Australia and is heralded as the biggest community-run fishing competition in the southern hemisphere.

But when the committee held its annual general meeting last Friday, not enough people turned up to fill the vacant positions.

Now the remaining committee members are making a desperate plea to the community for the next group of volunteers to step forward.

Six people left the committee after the 20th year in June, including long-serving president Jeff Amos.

If the positions of president, secretary and treasurer aren't filled by the end of next week, a Hook Up next year will be in doubt.

Acting president Ned Beaumont said the positions were best suited to semi-retired people willing to give up their time to reap the rewards of being involved in such a successful event.
