12 accredited BFTA members fished the match and also one guest founder member of the Association. 10 members were set against the boat crews in the competition.
This is the fourth Memorial match for Steve - our founder member and a major driving force of the BFTA. I am pleased to announce that the float tubers have once again triumphed over some very worthy local competition from the Thornton regulars. The score is now three to one in favour of the float tube group - (which it should be remembered contains many geriatrics)!?THE SCORES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
