Online Spearfishing Competition Update - Prizes

I set up a web page on

You can see the related info on it - I will run it from there - i.e. pics will be available as they come in during September as well as some links of interest are there - not all active yet - for now I made the record percent personal scoreboard available for anyone to download and apply - it's my own list of personal bests which you can easily alter for yourself and get a score as shown.

Shane of Freedivers has generously offered a pair of Freedivers Fins and a speargun as prizes that can be added to my mentorship program, correspondence course and my divebook on CD.

This way we have some categories and scope for various prizes.

I am typing out an information sheet that will be sent to relevant mailing lists soon.

Please help spread the word aftetr all it is for our Springbok team.

another thought for the photos of the fish during the competition. You've got to find a way in which the date of the photo can be established, otherwise contestants can send in photos of any big fish they shot at any time; there is a date setting on your camera that you can switch on, which could help verify the date, perhaps you can think of another way?
Congratulations, I think it's going to be amazing. Can't wait for September!

I have it sorted out - two methods that will be publicised just before comp begins.

Excellent, guys! Just one comment, how about rather weighing fish whole?

I did think of weighinfg teh fish whole but often people gut fish before getting to a scale and must then still dispose of the gilles and guts.
