WACAC Club meeting 2nd April 2019

The AGM took place and ended with a raffle

Last month’s Minutes were Read and agreed

As stated in the AGM, the club mourns the loss of Les Evans who was a big influence on how the club operates its principals. Our thoughts are with his family at this time

Events coming up. Rod & Line this weekend and Woodlands Curlew at the end of the month.

Members are asked to be careful when using club waters. The ground is slippery around the pegs.

The fished stocked earlier are doing well with some good catches being reported. The club will likely continue with stocking larger fish next year.

The QEII is due for some work to be carried out by removal of the reeds from in front of the pegs. A digger plus volunteer driver has been approached so the work will go ahead when the ground is suitable. There are bags of gravel at Horton Grange which anyone is free to use on the pegs there to fill in the holes. Wire mesh has been earmarked for the front of the pegs to help with grip.

Netting waters. We have been advised to net our waters to gauge the population and condition of the fish we stock. Date to be agreed

AOB – Grant Downie, would the committee consider allowing ground bait in the winter to keep the fish fed?

Memberships – Seniors 158, OAP/Disabled 91, Juniors 6, U 12’s 22 = 277

Meeting closed 8:57 PM

WACAC Club meeting 5th March 2019

Last month’s minutes read and agreed

There was a large stocking of bream at Horton Grange along with 100lb of Tench. Milkhope received Carp between 2-3lb, bream and Tench. Brenkley also received Carp between 2-3lb with bream and Crucian carp. This complements the QEII stocking before Christmas.

There are reports of people fishing club waters that are not members. Please report anything suspicious and check memberships when you can.

Work parties this year will include the roads between Milkhope and Horton Grange when the gravel becomes available. Priority for the QEII is the removal of reeds from in front of some pegs and fencing around Brenkley at the back of peg 22. We will need a good attendance from members to achieve this

Events. There are still 2 winter league matches to fish followed by 2 rod and lines matches. Curlew lake at Woodlands is our first away trip. All waters are fishing well

The AGM is 2nd April and any proposed changes to the constitution need to be submitted to the committee at least 2 weeks prior.
