The History of Kiama Gamefishing Club

he Kiama Gamefishing Club was founded in 2001 following the vision of the inaugural President Mark Way. The idea came to fruition when it was noted that a significant number of the members of other regional gamefishing clubs resided in the Kiama local area. These fisherman came together and felt that it was an ideal opportunity to add to the Kiama region and form this Game Fishing Club.

 

The founding committee was formed in the year 2000.

 

President: Mark Way

Vice President: Brett Cooper

Secretary: Deborah Cameron

Treasurer: Peter Verhey

Recorder: Virginia Way

Weighmaster: Greg Cameron

Harbour Representative: Trevor Newcombe

Safety Officer: Geoff Rogers

Newsletter Editor: Louis Whant

The committee was also ably assisted by Mrs Helene Rogers.

The committee and the president worked tirelessly to establish the club. This came to fruition in June 2001 when the KGFC became an affiliated entity and with the New South Wales Gamefishing Association sanctioning in July of that same year.

 

Renowned game fishing identity Mr Peter Goadby agreed to honour us as our club patron.
