THE first round of Boyne-Tannum HookUp registrations got under way this weekend, with organisers hopeful of strong entrant numbers.
HookUp president Jeff Amos said on Saturday he had hoped to get as many as 1000 entrants finalised for this year's event, which starts on May 2.
"I'd really like to have a thousand people here today," Mr Amos said.
"If we were very, very lucky and we got 3000 adults here today (Saturday)... then that'd be it; she'd be all over, but basically right up until the week prior to the event we'll keep putting entries in until we get our 3000."
Entries can be lodged at Pat's Tackleword, Boyne Bait and Tackle or www.boynetannumhookup.com.au.
