Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule - Toft Newton Change
Post by: andre on January 22, 2019, 10:32:40 AM
Spoken to Andy at Toft, March 2nd confirmed, he requested moving the July event to June as he wants to revive a Toft Newton Open Competiton which he will advertise.

See the proposed schedule page, we have agreed June 29th for the summer meet.

Andy has asked if we can supply some spare kit for the meetings up there as he is trying to push tubing as a way of increasing his business. I have spare flippers, boots, waders and a life jacket, can anyone provide a tube & any other sundries ?

Andre.

Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: andre on April 10, 2019, 08:03:52 AM
It's a meet Dave, we have two more comps on Ladybower within the current schedule. The WOTR is a Ladybower organised event. Hope you and the other attendees have a good day.

Andre.


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule AGM
Post by: andre on April 12, 2019, 08:15:54 AM
DATE CHANGE

The season in the south doesn't finish until October 12th I have therefore moved the AGM back to October 19th.

This years meeting will be held at the Ladybower Inn. Martin has booked space in the pub for us and food will be available from 16.30. Fishing prior to the meeting from 09.00 til 15.00, Autumn Trophy and sweepstake up for grabs as normal.

Andre.

 will we be fishing eyebrooke on the 25 as i have to book a hotel as i will be on my own i don't want to book another one and not go as there is no sign up on site as yet


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: buzzerman on May 13, 2019, 02:33:28 PM
Chemical twins will be there and I know Mick Woodcock will be there not sure about the others probably fishing down south there does not appear to be any interest in the north chemical twins will not be at Thornton as there appears to be as much interest as the Barnsfold event


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: brian on May 13, 2019, 02:45:57 PM
if there is only going to be three at eyebrook I am not spending £40 on a room so I will not be at eyebrook and I cant do thornton as I am away this weekend


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: Salmo7723 on May 13, 2019, 06:35:24 PM
Have just read you post Brian. I was hoping to fish both Thornton and Eyebrook but like you said if there is no support for either i can see your point. I thought there would be more fishing both of these venues. Will have to hope we get a few more for rest of season. I am only 1 hour 30 mins from both of these so might go for visit as have never fished Thornton before. Lets hope a few more decide to fish the comp. Mick Woodcock


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: andre on May 13, 2019, 09:38:14 PM
Gary and I will be at the Eyebrook. I will be at Thornton on Saturday but I can't do Scaling Dam this year.

Andre.

Post by: fishicist on May 28, 2019, 05:52:05 AM
Can confirm Sweethope booked, I have never know fishing like it on any stocked water, more Mayfly than ever before profusion of food in the water. I havent done anything as yet re Scaling, last year it would have been two unless more numbers I will need convincing to travel 90 minutes each way.


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: andre on May 28, 2019, 03:39:22 PM
Well done Tony, I'm up for Sweethope but I can't do Scaling this year.

Andre

Post by: Ric the Red on July 07, 2019, 01:19:15 PM
Gents,

Fishing on Saturday it was said we have a comp at Einor on 13.7 and Ladybower on 20.7.19, can this be confirmed and posted, thanks
Ric

13th Elinor confirmed. My mistake on Ladybower nothing planned until the AGM.

Andre.


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: Montanajoe on July 08, 2019, 09:03:01 AM
I think Ric is getting confused with the SKB Event at Ladybower which is also on the 13th.

I think that Elinor should be rearranged as there will probably be a bigger turnout at Ladybower where there will be a few of the London and Lancashire contingent along with myself attending. We will be camping over the whole weekend with beer and BBQ. We usually have around 15 to 20 tubers there and I will be encouraging them to join the BFTA if they are not members already.


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: andre on July 08, 2019, 11:26:44 AM
Thanks for that clarification Iain. Unfortunately I have already confirmed numbers to Ed at Elinor and I don't want to let him down as we have cancelled twice with him this season. On a personal note I wouldn't be able to fish Ladybower as I'm out early on Saturday evening and I wouldn't get home in time but thanks for taking the time to let us know what was happening. I knew I had something in my mind just couldn't think what exactly it was !

Tight lines.

Andre.


Title: Re: 2019 Proposed Schedule
Post by: Montanajoe on July 09, 2019, 08:57:49 AM
Fully understand. I do like fishing Elinor and Ed needs all the support he can get.
I should have spotted the double booking earlier and made a proposal back then.
Next year we'll have to look closely at other events when making up the schedule.

Iain

Hi Iain it is a pity regarding schedule these are done early January and I have told Rich to look at our dates before booking events at Ladybower but alas this has not happened
