It dawned a beautiful day last Sunday for the last competition for the year The Alliman Shield – 2014 December. 59 divers gathered at the pavillion at Gunnamatta bay looking forward to the days competition. Little did they know as the were putting up the channel that the diving conditions would be very ordinary indeed with very dirty water, a sloppy Nor-east swell, cold water and a scarcity of fish (You were the smart one Trippey).
A good day weather wise for the Alliman Shield – September 2014 on Sunday, sunny, light winds and flat clear seas, all of you that didn't make it you missed a great day! There was a bit of fog about though!
The divers gathered from 7am and by 7:30am there were 71 divers signed on and ready to go. All were excited because of the three month layoff due to cancelled comps and July being a no comp month (this needs to be reviewed)
It was impressive to see the bay full of boats and the boat start was as usual spectacular including a jet ski crew that were dumped in the water!
1:15pm saw all divers back with no late comers and no disqualifications and the weigh started and some top fish was seen to come in like:
It was a superb day for diving as all the divers on the day would agree, there are three more competitions left for the year the next one on the 12th October at Bayview. All USFA members are welcome to compete and if you need the Alliman fact sheet emailed to you please let me know.
