G911 Bass Fishing Competition

2018-10-24 06:01

THE annual G911 Bass Fishing competition fund raiser, organised by the Umvoti Agricultural Society (UAS), is being held on November 17.

Registration is from 5 am at the Bridgeford Dam’s Jondol venue, near Greytown.

Lines in will be at 5.30 am. There will be seven dams available within a nine-kilometre radius, 13,5 km of dam frontage and 122 ha of water to fish. The first prize is R4 000 for the longest bass.

The entrance fees are R120 for seniors and R70 for under 12 years.

After the popularity of the swindle entry the last two years, this will again be an option; for an extra R30, the longest bass bag will win the swindle.

Lines up at 3.30 pm and the scales will close at 4 pm. The competition is open to carp and barbel and there are numerous other prizes, including junior prizes up for grabs.

There will again this year be a fun trail run or walk. There will be two options, a five-kilometre and a 10 km option. Registration is at 7.30 am and the start is at 8 am. The entry cost is R40 per person for the five-kilometre and R60 for the 10 km. We would like to encourage all runners and walkers to participate in this.

Food will be on sale during the day.

Over the past few years, this annual fund raiser has raised a generous amount of funds from donations and the entrance fees from the competition, for the local G911 Centre in Greytown. The planned use for the funds, which have been raised over the past couple of years, is to install a Licence Plate Recognition System in the Greytown area. This is an integrated security surveillance system that incorporates military grade applications. The intention is for this system to be placed on all major roads entering and exiting our district.

It is felt that this system will benefit the entire community by detecting through licence plates undesirable vehicles entering or leaving the Umvoti district.

Through the support of the Umvoti community, the UAS have been able to meet a large portion of the budget and is hopeful that with another successful fishing competition, it will be able to meet its target and implement this long-awaited project.

The UAS looks forward to seeing G911 go from strength to strength as it continues to improve and better the service it provides to all in our community. Inquiries for the fishing competition can be directed to uas@

This event is for a very worthwhile fund raiser and we would like to encourage the Umvoti community to support it as G911 offers an invaluable service to our area 24/7, 365 days a year, and is run solely on donations.
