10th Annual Reef & Beef Extravaganza - Ironpot
The 10th annual Reef & Beef Extravaganza will be held at Ironpot Hall in Ironpot from 5:30pm onwards this evening. This all-you-can-eat event will offer guests as many prawns, oysters, Moreton Bay bugs, scallops, whole cooked Red Emperor and pan-fried reef fish fillets, rib steaks and BBQ rib fillet steaks as they can pack in, along with salads, vegies and dessert. There'll also be a licensed bar operating too - so no BYO - plus live entertainment from local performers. It's been a year since Ironpot last digested a Reef & Beef Night but it'll be a fantastic event (as it always is). And if you'd rather be driven than drive the 55km from town, there'll be a bus running from Kingaroy's Glendon Street bus depot at 4:30pm for a small extra $10 fee. Reef & Beef tickets are $80 per head for adults, $50 for high school students and $25 for primary school students and you can book them by phoning Sonya on 0428-648-142 or Hook on 0428-648-244, or by emailing them. Be quick, though! Numbers for this popular community fund-raiser have risen every year and places are limited.
Boondooma Yellowbelly Fishing Competition
The 30th annual Boondooma Dam Yellowbelly Fishing Competition will be held at Boondooma Dam near Proston all this weekend, commencing at 5:00am this morning and concluding at around lunchtime tomorrow. The event - organised by the Boondooma Dam Fish Stocking Association in conjunction with a bevy of sponsors - will have adult and junior sections and numerous cash prizes for each weigh-in period. A licensed bar, BBQ and food and drink stalls will be operating for the duration and accommodation for competitors is available at the adjoining Lake Boondooma Tourist Park. Competition entry fees are $20 for adults and $5 for children and all competitors will need to have a Stocked Impoundment Permit to take part. Last year more than 1000 keen anglers wet their lines for a share of the $4,500 prize-monies and large numbers of an campers packed the dam's camping grounds. This year organisers expect similar numbers or higher. More details and/or nominations? Phone John on (0427) 112-477 or send him an email. Want on-site accommodation?
