Fishing Competition Fury!

I was reading this in the Star Newspaper :

KANGAR: Angry anglers dumped a car into the sea after they did not get the prizes promised in a lucky draw of a fishing competition.

Some 3,000 anglers had earlier been vying for a Proton Gen2, motorcycles, vacation trips and cash prizes totalling RM30,000 at Kuala Sungai Baru, Kuala Perlis.

SHOW OF ANGER: Curious passers-by looking at the car which was pushed into the sea by angry anglers in Kuala Perlis on Saturday.
When the prize presentation ceremony came at 5.30pm, there were no cars or motorcycles.

The anglers then demanded a refund of the RM40 they had each paid to take part.

When this was not met, some of them pushed the car belonging to one of the officials into the sea.They also held two officials “captive” but released them when the police arrived.

According to the competition advertisement, the Proton Gen2 was to be the first prize in the lucky draw, followed by three Modenas Kriss motorcycles and six fishing sets.

The first three winners in the competition were promised cash prizes and the fourth to the 20th winners were to get vacation trips to Sabah and Tioman.

Kangar OCPD Supt Yusof Mohd Diah said the incident occurred due to the unkept promises of the organisers.A participant, Shafie Sawal, 54, from Padang Besar, said the event started on a bad note when the organisers delayed the competition time from 9am to noon.

“Some of the participants who did not want to take part asked for a refund but the organisers refused.

“The rest who continued to take part in the competition waited until 5.30pm for the prize presentation.

“When there were no prizes, the anglers became angry and the situation got out of control,” he said.

    Sembang Sembang at the Esplanade

    Last Friday we had our Sembang Sembang session at the center of the Penang Esplanade. The Sembang Sembang session is to promote fishing in Penang as a recreational activity and also to introduce the public to PMPP. Basically we were there from 8pm to 11pm (just before the World Cup Kickoff!) fishing and talking to the interested people walking by. We set up a small table and had nasi lemak and mineral water available to anyone interested.
    Here are some pictures from the event.
