With just over a week to go everything is looking good for another great tournament.
Next Thursday at Hervey's On the Bay will be the 11am briefing.
If anyone would like to come down and check out the boats in the comp you are more than welcome.
There are raffles and local skippers will give talks about the area and where the fish are.
The boats will return on November 15 in the afternoon.
