On December 16, MCU’s Sports Fishing club sent out a big group of competitors and school ambassadors to the 2017 Taiwan International Lure Fishing Tackle Show in Kaohsiung. The event was held to give local fishing industry companies a chance to market their products as well as give fishing enthusiasts a chance to meet and interact with other hobbyists as well.
A major part of the event is the university competition where schools around Taiwan would send a team of students to partner with a local fishing company to promote and market a single product of service. This time around, MCU was fortunate enough to have two teams participate in the competition. Team MCU A was comprised of Michael Chang, Gia Nhi Lama, Phan Aihanh and Sachi Singeo sponsored by SAME Fishing. Team MCU B was made up of Fidel Castillo, Irene Wu, Mark An and Peggy Hsieh backed by FiveZoom. Alongside the teams, MCU Ambassador team included Vicky Lin, Adriana Najera, Astrid Palacios, Nikolas Kurniadi, and Caden Davidson. Of course none of this would have ever been possible without the support of our advisor, Professor David Trott.
At the end of the competition, MCU raked up six trophies! MCU A walked away with three first place trophies for English Presentation, English Explanation and Overall Performance. MCU B came home with three trophies- second for Chinese explanation and third place for English Explanation and Overall Performance. The club won the most trophies altogether and have truly set the bar for next year’s competition. Our club is always inviting new members to join us so please consider it for next semester!
