2018-2019 Back-to-back Greenback has officially commenced. Our last back-to-back was in 2014. We are now 200 days from Sign-On.
2019 Greenback is going to be the start of a new era with the management of the annual Lions Greenback fishing competition event.
The Lions Cabarita Beach and Pottsville Beach are now in a partnership agreement with Pottsville Beach Sports Club and Pottsville Beach Fishing Club to run the event based at the Pottsvile Beach Sports Club.
We would like to do as much as we can on-line. The use of on-line tools to manage registration, entry tickets, sign-on, 4WD permits will help with the volunteer workload required leading up to and supporting the weekend event. We understand that may be challenging, however it provides a significant reduction in volunteers required leading up to the event.
If you are able to help please consider volunteering and supporting the Greenback Management Project Team.
Our new Titanium sponsor is the Pottsville Beach Sports Club. Madkeen have also renewed their Platinum sponsorship (keep a look out for the 2019 NSW and QLD Greenback fishing tops).
Work is in progress with 2019 Sponsors. The Lions Greenback Charity Raffle will soon be available.
We are taking the best of ‘Cabarita Beach Greenback’ along with the ‘Pottsville Fishing Beach Classic’ and turning it all into an awesome ‘The Pottsville Beach Sports Greenback Fishing Competition (A project of the Lions Club Cabarita Beach and Pottsville Beach)’ event. The 2019 Greenback Fishing Competition will run the same format as it did in 2018 with some on-line changes and a new secret fish prize.
One significant change is the removal of the competition boundaries. Boundaries are tidal waters only. We are going back to the early years, where the Greenback fishing competition did not have boundaries. [This should even up the playing field with the ‘Fowler QLD v’s NSW Greenback Shield’.] Boats are permitted in estuaries & rivers only. As a result of the boundary changes, we have changes in the fish sizes and bag limits have also changed. All fishermen bound by same Rules and Bag Limits.
