BRITISH CONGER CLUB

It is coming up to that time of year when our great club meets for the Annual General Meeting where we can discuss matters that are important to us all and decide who we all put forward on our committee.

As we have all seen in the December newsletter two of our stalwart committee members are retiring, thus leaving some very important roles that we need to fill.

The vacant posts will be:-

Secretary                              Fish Recorder

Records officer                   Merchandise officer   

I hope you will all join me in thanking both Di and Kath for all of the sterling work and commitment that they have put into the British Conger Club and wish them well for the future.

What we must not do is ignore the fact that they will both be retiring and believe that they will carry on if nobody is available, we must ensure that at close of the 2016 AGM that we have a full working committee to carry us forward.

I implore all members to consider taking up available posts and also will reiterate that I will also be standing down as Chairman at the 2017 AGM hence we do need to consider someone for this role.

Over the past two years we have, as a committee, used to good effect the internet via SKYPE for committee members not able to attend a meeting sitting around a table.   This has worked extremely well and I personally think that meetings can be run this way, thus opening up the prospect that committee members do not need to live in a certain locality as history has meant for us.

Again, please consider all available committee posts.  It is a fact that if they are not filled then this great club of ours will be in danger of folding due to lack of support.

Best regards and tight lines

Bryn Lavis
Hon. Chairman

Footnote:   Please note that the Headquarters for the Members Championships has changed.  It will now be the function room on the first floor of the Three Crowns Pub, 11 The Parade, Barbican, Plymouth, PL1 2JL.
