News. AGM has taken place, see attachment for discussion/action points. The 2020 first half fixtures have been posted. If any member pleasure fishes (as per rules) and catches a fish they can have it weighed and verified by a fellow club member for the annual leisure fish trophy. If anyone would like to join this club they can ring a committee member on the numbers in relevant page. Congratulations to Darren Swan for winning the 2019 winter league and to Mal McIntyre for catching the HF of the year.
Points raised and discussed
1- Bank statements. BC gave an update and will bring statement to next match
2- A discussion regarding whether the 3 day time opens should still count as matches in the fixtures, GH voted against this but the majority voted for these to remain as part of the fixtures and weights to be included.
3- Discussion regarding Xmas fare and should the 6 match rule remain in place (members must fish 6 matches to be able to fish this match). The majority voted for this rule to remain in place.
4- Guests - discussion whether we can accommodate guest anglers. This was voted in, however, any guest angler can only fish for the money paid out on the night and not be included in any fish of the month or year. A guest can only fish as a guest on 3 occasions, they must then either join as a member or leave.
5- CG asked if anyone wanted to become Chairman to take over him. After discussion CG to remain as chairman
6- SS wanted Arbroath trip to be raised, majority voted against this and any member can go when they please but not as part of a club trip.
7- SS wanted a discussion regarding match start and finish times and could these be earlier in order to attract potential new members. The majority voted against this therefore match times to remain as they are.
8- Insurance for the club was raised- we have no insurance. GH seek advice and update members.
9- Summer league- MP asked if members wanted a summer league, majority voted for this, however this to be individual matches where payouts are for each match, and not on a league basis. MP will organise this and arrange fixtures.
10- Next AGM 8th Jan 2021
