Richard wins over 60′s trophy

Congratulations to Richard Seabright who won the over 60′s trophy at Rook Hall yesterday by just over a pound from his closest rival Dave Auston.  The full result can be found on the concessionary match results page.

April match dates

With the 2013 rulebooks still at the printers these are the matches you need to be aware of in April:

There are two senior matches on Sundays:

14th      Slough House Farm (AGH Engraving Cup)
21st       Totham Pit

and 5 concessionary matches on Tuesdays:

2nd      Bog Grove (silvers only)
9th       Totham Pit

Next working party

The next working party will be held at either Totham Pit or Rook Hall (dependant upon the available kit) on Sunday 17th March.  Please meet Paul at the Totham Pit container at 8am if you able to lend a hand as it will be good to get the necessary bank clearance work done before everything starts growing again.

There is plenty of work that needs doing on Rook Hall front lake.

Accessibility of venues

A potential new member recently asked about ease of access from car to swim around our waters and I thought I would share my reply:

In terms of accessibility we can split our venues into 3 categories:

Very good – you can park in at least one swim: 

Howells (1 swim)
Little London (1 swim)
Little Park Main Lake (3 swims) 

Good - the nearest swim is a short walk (10 yards or less): 

Beckingham Hall (if parked by pump house)
Bog Grove
Brick Kiln Pond
Chelmer & Blackwater Canal (Heybridge Tesco stretch only)
Little Park Top Lake
New Hall
Railway Pond (but its too weedy for you to want to fish there)
Rook Hall 1
Slough House Farm
Totham Pit
Whitehouse Farm 

Poor – a lengthy walk to the first swim:

Heron Hall
Rook Hall 2 & 3
River Blackwater
The rest of the Chelmer & Blackwater Canal

Little Park scores highly on accessibility.
