JOHN O GAUNT  SAT 12th JUNE PAIRS COMPETITION

Dear All,

 

The following have previously advised they would be attending, and paid a deposit.

Messrs Bateman, Bloom, Broome, Burdett, Burgess, Butler, Fulton, Haskins, Holloway, Littlestone, Maguire, Martin, Sahami, Tom Smith, and Tufo. In addition Lynda Foster is coming with Dave Brome.

 

As I need to confirm breakfast numbers please only let me know if you are now not able to attend.

If you are not on the list, and would like to come let me know ASAP. We do need a minimum of  20 as we have booked the fishery for our exclusive use. 

 

Once I know the final numbers I will do the pairings, and send to you, as well as Tom's list showing what is owed by everyone. Once again payment by BACS is appreciated, or by cheque to Tom.

 

The arrangements are meet at The Crown in Kings Somborne at 8am for a full English breakfast, then up the hill to the fishery.

Cost for the day £65 for a 4 fish ticket, and breakfast. We will aim to start fishing by 9.15. There will be 4 moves of 35 minutes during the morning which will take us up till 11.35 then free roaming till we break for lunch at 1pm. By that time, and going on previous experience I would expect many to have bagged up. Free roaming after lunch if you still have fish to catch.

 

The John Fuller Trophy will be awarded to the pair with the heaviest combined weight. A prize for the best individual weight,  one for the biggest fish, and another for the secret weight. We will be having the lucky raffle draw with a Day Ticket to John O Gaunt, £30 towards your days costs, a day at Farmoor with boat, and two 6 fish tickets worth £70, and a couple of bottles of wine. If you want to take part in the raffle please add £5 to your payment.

 

We send our best wishes to Carl who is having an operation next week, we wish him a speedy recovery, and to Colin Mann who is awaiting his MRI scan, and is unable to walk, or drive at the moment. We hope to see them both later on in the season fit, and well.

 

I look forward to either hearing from you, or seeing you at John O Gaunt.

 

Kind Regards, and Tight Lines

MAKING PAYMENTS

Would all members paying into the club account via BACS please use a reference so that Tom can recognise who it is. He suggests your initials plus the venue. For instance if its Tom Smith for Lakedown it would be TSLAKEDOWN. He is receiving payments he can't relate to members which is causing some confusion.

 

Thanks for your cooperation.

Michael
