There’s something about an MD match that makes it a pleasure to be an MO Pete 👍
Having been involved on both sides over the years I have to say that it's down to those participating and their attitude, It's about the taking part. Pot and Glory Hunters tend to be disappointed when they realise that the only thing people are interested in are the bragging rights and the banter at the end of the day. ;)

NB: The odd side bet involving a "Golden Nugget" and a fellow competitor is entirely acceptable in such circumstances.:upthumb:

Only just seen this - too many forums to read through for a busy working man..... stick me down as a reserve, ta.

If I get on, happy to run a superpool.

Ive not fished the glebe for ages but its such an awesome venue you cant ignore the opportunity

Lake 1 anything can work
all rod and all pole disciplines
if your worried or not sure what to do just ask - everyone here is a friendly bunch and for us all its a laugh and the prises arent serious enough for money chasers or the big names

as long as you can cast and be disciplined in feeding you will catch

I’d say depths average 4-6’ with 2-4’ in the margins.
As Mogz said, all disciplines work. Long pole and 2+2, down the margins, waggler/pellet wag. On the tip, cast a feeder over to the far bank, as close as you can get.
Bait: pellet and corn mostly (no meat or bread), but take maggot and/or caster for the silvers - of which there are good numbers of skimmers and bream, worth targeting if you’re struggling.

ifr youve not fished it before or you dont fish a cage feeder much the one thing that will catch you out is the 20inch hooklength
if you try and 'launch' your feeder close over it will end in tears as the hooklength will fold over into the far bank if your chucking it tight. you need to be able to land and feather it

my bait will solely consist of 6 and 8mm pellets plus groundbait
2 plus 2 deck
long pole shallow or deck
edge
feeder

And you have to be careful with that one, as its not the actual hook length, but its the minimum of 20" hanging below your feeder.
Depending on how you set up your rigs your actual hook length could be 24 or 26".
