took Section 1 with 23lb 12oz from peg 3. With Section 2 going to Den Porter on peg 13 with 15lb
Thanks to all
those that turned up to the AGM this year. There are some committee changes to make you aware
Paul Edwards has
taken over from Paul Cooke as Assistant Match Secretary with immediate effect due to Paul Cooke's other
commitments. Thanks to Cookie for his help at the Matches over the past few years.

had to give up the position of Minute Secretary due to work commitments, again we thank Ian for his valuable help

This means, of
course, that we are now looking for Ian's replacement!

known. It was a chilly still day and the lake was surprisingly clear after reports of 100lb+ catches from a midweek
match. For such a normally prolific water it was, apart from the top two, very tough
