Latest Happenings!

Firstly, thanks to all who attended last nights meeting at the Horseshoe (all 5 of us)!
Unfortunately I have had to cancel this Sundays match at Acorn so I apologise in advance for those of you who had made plans to fish this one.
I have now booked up another weekend festival at Holgan Farm for 19-21 September.
The format should be pretty much the same as the last time (1 match on each of the three lakes, winner of the first match gets first pick of the accommodation) only this time round we will all be able to stay on the venue as Ian has now built 2 new lakeside lodges as well as the existing farmhouse.
The cost of the weekend will be £125 which includes 2 nights B&B plus 3 days of fishing.
Obviously pools, evening meals and alcohol are extra but if you have a look under the desk in the tackle shop or under the dog's bed there should be a couple of bottles of single malt lying around.
Please let me know as soon as possible and I will be looking for a deposit of £20 at the next meeting which will be on Tuesday 4 March at The Horseshoe.
Please note that the March meeting will also be the AGM and membership renewal time so if you have any concerns / criticisms over how the club is being managed or if you fancy having a go yourselves then now is your chance to shine!
I suggested at the meeting last night that we should keep the membership open this year (rather than capped as before) to attract a few new members as the numbers fishing recent matches have been pretty dire which is a shame.
So if you are reading this and fancy joining feel free to come along.
In the meantime there are spaces left for the next three matches which are:
Harescombe (16 Feb)
Sedges - Tile (23 Feb)
Shiplate - Main lake (2 March)
