First there was YoYo

skate comp

YoYo is a female common skate who held the record for the common skate being caught and released – 8 times.

Now we need a name for a new record holder – a male common skate currently known as tag 2412 – he was last recaptured at the recent Skate Tagathon and has now made the trip 9 times over an 18 month period !!

To celebrate this we have decided on a little competition to be open to anyone under the age of 14 –  just think up a suitable name for 2412 and draw a suitable cartoon to tell us why you picked it.

The closing date for the competition is the 6th June 2011.

The prize will be a free day out on one of OnYer Marks charter boats based in SW Scotland for the winner and one responsible adult.

You can send your entry by email to contact@ssacn.org or by ordinary mail to our Secretary whose address can be found here.

2412 was initially tagged 29/10/2009 he was recaptured on 05/02/2010,  21/02/2010, 04/04/2010, 31/10/2010, 08/04/2011, 09/04/2011, 16/04/2011 and finally the 18/04/2011.
