Day tickets to be purchased on the day however please let me know if you are coming so we can inform the fishery of numbers - please state Oaks if you want to fish the Specimen Lake

The Pairs Tournament:
There will be Two Matches spread over the 28th and 29th July 2018
On Day One (Saturday) the entrants will be split into groups of TWO drawn from a hat to make up 'The Pairs'
These Pairs will fish together as a team for the duration of the weekend

The peg draw will then take place for the Saturday Match with each angler drawing a peg as per usual
At the end of the Saturday match points will be awarded based upon the combined weight of each Pair

Day Two (Sunday) everyone will again draw a peg but keep their Pairs Partner and at the end of day two of the tournament again points will be awarded based upon the combined weight of each pair.
Saturdays and Sundays points will be added together to determine the Maggotdrowning Pairs winners

Cost for the Pairs Tournament: £25.00* per person + Pools Money (£5.00 per day)(*This is to cover the peg fees and the cost of the trophies)

Friday Match (Pines):
Meet at the fishery on Friday morning, Draw at 10.00am, Fish 11.30 - 5:30 (ish)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​

Everyone
Friday and Saturday Evening/Night: by kind permission Bivvies will be allowed to be pitched on-site but no further fishing will be allowed.
I will be bringing the big BBQ and the Gazeebo again and cooked breakfasts will be available onsite.
BBQ will be available for all to use on Friday night if anyone wants
Saturday Night, Your's truly will play host and cook the BBQ - I haven't poisoned anybody yet :D



Important Bits
1) Firstly, due to the resounding success of previous years tournaments, many of the entrants have already requested that they be able to attend this years Pairs Tournament, they will receive an invitation and any untaken places will be offered on a first come first served basis
2) However, the criteria for entering the Pairs Tournament is that you must have been a Member of the Maggotdrowners Forum prior to Midnight 31st December 2017 and you must be a Site Supporter when entering and also during the event (only applicable to the Pairs Tournament)

In the interest of fair play, last year's attendees who are current Site Supporters are to be given an invite which they need to confirm their attendance ASAP. However there needs to be a cut off point and this will be Midnight Saturday 23rd June , after that any remaining places will be offered to the reserves list on a first come first served basis, site supporter's again take priority.
