CHAIRMAN of the Mary Valley Fishing Classic Committee, Glenn Williams, said this year's event, held on the first weekend of November at Lake Borumba, would not have been as successful without support from local sponsors.

"We had support from about 25 different sources which was the best since the competition began in 2012, meaning we can return more profits to Lions community projects with this year raising around $1500," he said.

Mr Williams thanked the following businesses and supporters for getting behind the Lions project: The Gympie Times, Amamoor Lodge B&B, Gympie Cooloola Foodservices, Sullivan Livestock & Rural Services, Sunshine Mitre 10, Bunnings Warehouse, BCF, Fisherman's Warehouse, Kandanga Country Meats, Koolewong Par 3 Golf Course, Borumba Fishing 'n' Outdoors, Mr Warren Truss, Bush & Beach Magazine, Moffatdale Ridge Winery, Mr & Mrs R Mills, Lake Borumba Fish Restocking Association, Borumba Deer Park, All About Bass and More, Mr G Walker of Kumbak Kamping.

After the success of this year's event it was expected to be held again in November 2015, and Lions were be keen to hear from anyone interested in sponsorship. Contact gympielions@gmail.com.
