I’m not a Glebe member although I did join one year and I never went... waste of money that was!
I fish some (not all) of the annual charity matches in May and have fished the odd MFS match on there in the past.
How do chaps and chappeses.
Following a bit of ping pong email tennis with @Scribe, I have booked Lake 1 at the Glebe on Saturday 23rd October 2021 which should be approximately 3 weeks after the 2021 Pork Pie match (details for which are coming soon).
There are 30 pegs on Lake 1 and given the time of year, I'll cap this match at 18 to give everyone fishing some extra room.
In true Maggotdrowners spirit, the match will be as fair as possible for all abilities and a staggering 50% of you lucky anglers will go home with some dosh.
The format will be:
6 x teams of 3 anglers
1 member of each team in each section
Each angler will draw a ball that says (for example) T4 S1, which means that angler will be fishing in Team 4 and fishing in Section 1
Once all teams have been selected, the anglers will then go on to draw their pegs
Each angler MUST weigh in as the winning teams will be decided on total TEAM weight
There will be nice envelopes containing said dosh for the Top 3 teams
Peg fees to be paid by 30th September (details nearer the date).
I will send reminders nearer the date but I will not chase you after 30th Sept.
Anyone not paid on by then will be removed from the list and a reserve added.
The cost for this fantastic event is an eye watering £20 all in, comprising of £10 peg fee and £10 pools.
This leaves us with £180 to pay out to the top 3 teams, as follows:
1st £90 (£30 each)
2nd £60 (£20 each)
3rd £30 (£10 each)
If someone wants to run an optional superpool, let me know and I'll point people in your direction on the day.
I need to see Roy about where we can do the draw, hopefully outside the marquee if there's no other matches and likely fishing 10.30am - 3.30pm.
I have 1 set of scales, weigh net and bar, @ulladubulla has kindly offered to bring a set. I'd like 1 more set so we have a set for each section if possible to speed up the weigh in.
Any help with weighing in equipment will be greatly appreciated but won't guarantee you an envelope!
