It doesn't seem a year since our last presentation night but a year it is. Where does time go eh!
Our presentiation night this year took place on Saturday 29th January at the Northumbrian Piper.
Another good turn out from members, members family and friends meant that the small room we'd been forced to use was a tight squeeze but I think it's fair to say that a good night was had by all who attended. The Greally family(especially) would like to thank everyone who donated prizes for the raffle as it was they who took home most of them. Thanks once again to Bruce for the excellent slideshow which I know is appreciated by everyone, to Mike Bell, Denise and to all the staff at the Piper. This years winners were:
Dave Greally won both the Club Trip Championship and Pike Angler of the Year(as well as most of the raffle prizes). A deserved double for Dave as anyone who fishes through holes in ice deserves something(apart from being locked up). Not to outdone by his dad, young Aaron Greally won Junior Pike Angler of the Year. Biggest fish of the season went to Lyn Baker. A presentation night wouldn't be a presentation night without Ross Greaves and it was Ross who took home the award for the best fish caught on a lure. Simon Fairclough was another double winner as he took home the Stuart Mordue Trophy for services to the club and also the trophy for the biggest pike caught on a club trip. Unfortunately Simon was unable to attend the evening due to ill health and I'm sure I speak for all our members when i say get well soon and we hope to see you on the bank again soon.
Congratulations to all our winners and let's hope for another exciting season this year.
