Until the last day of January, there is an entry fee of $5.00 for members and $25.00 for non-members (i.e., pay this fee and you get a FREE one-year membership in the Club!) which is due after registration of your first catch (See rule # 7). From February 1st on, the fee will be $10.00 and $30.00, respectively. Hurry.
Scoring: Each type of fish will be awarded points based (approximately) on the relative difficulty of catching it, thereby ensuring that the winner is really trying. Norm will total the points at the end of the year. If you catch something that isn't on the list, call Norm and he'll make up a new category.

The Fish Twitches: On three weekends each year, plus the last one before the Awards Ceremony, contestants will be allowed to fish anywhere in the Hawaiian Islands they chose, for two days, and as long as it complies with all the other criteria above, any catch will count, and, again, the honor system applies. Fishmaster Norm will more or less arbitrarily select the days for twitchin' so keep an eye on the web calender. As there will be no official scale available, a Biggest Fish claim for a Twitch catch will not be accepted, unless it's an indisputable monster, in which case a photograph will be required for the record.
Email Norm Chun (bluec239 (at) msn.com) or call him at 247-7610 for further info, or to register or to report. You can often find him at the Club paddles and meetings to pay him.
In addition to information about what fish and how big, Norm would also appreciate such additional data as you can provide: what type of lure or bait was used, water clarity, ocean and weather conditions, and type of bottom (sand, coral, deep water, etc), stuff like that.
