10% member discount on rod building course

Gavin St Leger is a custom rod builder and is running another rod building course in Colchester on the 2nd and 3rd of November.  If any members are interested he is offering a 10% discount, all you have to do is write Maldon Club where it asks for the promotional code.  There are a couple of guys from Total Sea Fishing magazine on the course at the moment and there are 5 spaces left.  If you are interested you can either visit Gavin’s website or contact him on 01206 579 532 or 07907 445653.

Division 1 National Result

On Saturday Maldon took part in the Division 1 National on the Trent and Mersey Canal.

The result massively surpassed our target which was to avoid the ten team relegation. Graham Garnham won a bronze medal finishing in 7th place overall , Mark Campion was third in his section and as a team we finished with a collective 10 kilo 160 and 278 points to finish 30th out of 56 teams. We were one of only 11 teams in the top 30 without major manufacturer sponsorship.

Everyone can be proud of what they achieved well done all. 

Lastly but by no means least  thanks to our sponsors New Hall Fine English Wines and Colchester Bait and Tackle.

How each member of the team contibuted to the final results can be found on the senior match results page and the overall result can be found here.

You can now find us on Facebook

Following a conversation last week with our esteemed membership secretary (that’s Kyf by the way)  around the website limitation of having no on-line forum for members to raise issues, ask questions etc I have created a Facebook page (which already has 28 likes) to provide a vehicle for those with 21st century savvy to kick off conversations etc…..

Please note that this is a forum to raise questions or to share updates not a forum for arguments or slander so please keep it sensible otherwise the page will be removed.  As long as it’s kept clean and sensible I’ll keep the page live.  

So if there’s anything you feel needs to be shared then please join the group and start posting away  (Denise got the ball rolling last week and not only liked the page, but also posted about the open day within 5 minutes of me sending her an invite to join! – 3 Gold Stars to you Denise).

Beware of EA impersonators

During a recent burglary of Environment Agency premises, corporate branded clothing was stolen. The EA have good reason to believe that this could now be used to impersonate Environment Agency employees. Environment Agency officers always carry photographic identification with them, and they never offer any work or advice for cash. Likewise, EA officers never demand cash from anglers for licences or for fishing licence breaches (only Maldon AS approved day ticket bailiffs on the canal or Railway Pond have the authority to ask you for day ticket money).

If you are aware of any instances of people being approached and demanded to pay an on-the-spot-fine, or are suspicious that someone is impersonating Environment Agency staff, please call the EA immediately on 0800 80 70 60.

Members are reminded that guest tickets are available from our three main agents (JP Tackle, Angling Essentials and Bevan) but will only be sold to members (not their guests) who produce their current 2013/14 membership cards to prove that they have rejoined for this season.  If you have a Paypal account you can purchase an online guest ticket here.
