GLADSTONE mother of two Sandy Dimitrov is still riding on a high after winning the biggest prize at the Boyne Tannum HookUp last night.

She took home the $90,000 boat, and she says she'll be keeping it.

When her name was called at 8.15pm she was standing with her husband, chairs packed up, ready to make the mad dash to their car to miss the traffic.

"I didn't even hear the announcement.

"I turned around and my husband turned and said, 'that's you, that's you'," she said.

Mrs Dimitrov, not usually a runner, dashed to the stage to claim her prize.


"I'm not much of a runner but I think I made that quarter mile in less than a minute," she laughed.

"I still can't believe it.

"I woke up this morning and thought I just had a really good dream."

She and her husband Clifton regularly go fishing and they also have a tinnie, which she says they'll probably be selling now.


"My husband thinks he's going to need a bigger shed now," she said.

For 17 years the couple has entered the fishing competition.

And it's not the first time their family has had a win.

The first year they entered her daughter Jenny won the junior boat.

"It's just such a great local fishing competition and I think it's really important that we support it," she said.
