Sport Fly Fishing is a voluntary organisation as are the organisers so not directly covered by the H&S and employment act however are still required to take all reasonable steps as if deemed negligent are still open to prosecution more importantly make sure that all our mates return home safely so to this end.

- To compete all entrants must wear life jackets at all times and must be free of adverse affects of any drug or alcohol
- In case of an emergency three forms of communication needs to be carried in all boats, one being voice. Others any of the following, flare, PLB, cell phone. It is the responsibility of the “captain of the boat” (owner) to ensure they have these items on their boat.
- A briefing will take place on Saturday morning to answer questions, will include safety, organisers will be active in seeing that safety measures are being followed

A panel of three will be selected to make decisions around the running of the event including dealing with disputes (this probably being the three organisers, they will be named before the event starts). If unable to resolve an issue it will then be referred to the SFF committee. An issue (eg protest) can be resolved if the panel and the recipient of the protest are happy with the resolution. Any protest can be given verbally to any panel member but it will then be recorded in written form and signed.

Hopefully no protests hence the desire to spell out requirements and that if by chance one does eventuate it can be dealt with in the most effective and fair way with the least disruption to a fun event, end of the day shit does happen.

Organisers Lloyd Struthers: with Tim Anderson Johannes Krill
Back-up date for both competitions is 14&15 April 2019.

SFFNZ will notify all anglers with final details ASAP.
