Re. Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships GYMPIE 2014.

Dear Sir.

Most of your retail customers are concerned with the ‘land’, some are primary producers, or rural business people, or friends or relations of rural people. Due to these ties to the ‘land’ the benefits and problems of the land are of paramount importance to them. Even Australia target shooters are people who have connections rural Australia almost to a man they are primarily conservative and nationalistic. All of them would like to see your business name in the sponsors list for these two very worthy causes that are combined in the same event. The hunt has two main objectives, one to encourage the removal of as many feral pigs as possible, (which damage local industries and the environment) and as all proceeds go to the ‘Wandering Warriors’ veterans and their families, (organised by the SAS Queensland Association) to ensure that is the highest possible amount.

There is a third objective, that is to ameliorate communications between hunters, political leaders, media, business people and the community in general, improving the image and opening more public and private land to hunters.

Government sources place the number of Feral Pigs in Australia at 25 million. Most of these are in Queensland. Feral Pigs cost primary producers millions of dollars in damage to property and crops, control attempts by governments cost the tax payer’s millions yet feral pig numbers are still expanding. We have an opportunity to fill the need of feral pig reduction and show that recreational hunters can make a positive difference.

Please accept our invitation to attend and award your prizes at the culmination, weigh in, presentation on the 26th October 2014. The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships 2014 is a three-day hunt, with Bow, Firearm or Dogs for feral pigs, anywhere in our State .

If current pledges are continued to be contributed, the $20,000 dollar value of prizes will be easily surpassed. This will attract at least 500 to 600 plus nominations from hunters statewide. The list of donated Prizes from Sponsors is viewable on http://www.foaa.com.au/queensland-big-boar-hunting-championships/sponsors-please-support-these-worthy-sponsors/

The last major Feral Pig Hunt of 2013 had $12,000 of prizes and 494 competitors, and raised $26,000 for charities. The feral pigs weighed-in at 6 tons, 70 pigs in all. We hope to surpass all of these figures. Prizes will be awarded for heaviest Boar, Sow, Most number of pigs, Largest Tusk, Largest Pigs Ear, Longest Pig Tail.
TV Chef Matt Golinski has been asked by Gympie Regional Council to cook a pig on the afternoon. We have already had, two half page promotion giving positive response from the Gympie Times newspaper, and they have promised more articles before the weigh-in day. Sponsorship/promotion by the Yaffa Publications magazines ‘Sporting Shooter’ and ‘Bacon Busters’, has been promised and they have been invited to attend on the day. So to have ‘Wild Boar Australia’ and ‘Guns and Game’ magazines who have also promised Sponsorship/Promotion. National TV and local media will also be in attendance on the Sunday 26th weigh-in day.
Wandering Warrior is a charity initiative of the Queensland Branch of the Australian SAS Association. Its members are veterans of Australia’s military conflicts over the past 50 years. They volunteer their time, energy and resources to conduct events which raise funds for veteran and family focussed charities. Wandering Warriors has no paid positions. With the support of corporate Australia and the Australian community, the Wandering Warriors aim to raise badly needed funds for Wounded Veterans, and their families.

If you would like to contribute as a sponsor please phone, or email Ron on the numbers below.

Hope to see you on the day, if any further information is required please reply to this
