From the latest Angling Trust update.

There is strong advice against travelling to or from Tier 3 areas which we will reflect in our revised guidelines which will be published later this week once the parliamentary process is concluded.

Is this liable to affect any members Scibe ?

The Tier 3 areas are

  • Liverpool
  • Knowsley
  • Wirral
  • St Helens
  • Sefton
  • Halton
As far as I am aware there is no one taking part from those areas.

If anyone is not sure what tier they are in, there is a post code checker here

Where - Lakeview Fishery

The fishery is very accessible with a straight run from the A46 and has superb facilities and there will be more than enough room with two or even three lakes available if we need them.

As an incentive (bribe) I will put up three of Melton Mowbray's finest pork pies for 1.2 & 3 rd places.

We have exclusive use of the following lakes which will give each angler an empty peg to one side.

Marina - 24 Pegs
Reef - 24 Pegs
Oasis - 20 Pegs

Peg £7 - Payable on the day.
Pools £13
Winner take all £1

There will be a charity raffle - I'll get our business to put £50 in the pot of Bobco vouchers and I will personally double that, so its a £50 a £30 & £20 Bobco voucher for three lucky winners, no doubt Lakeview will donate some prizes from their tackle shop.

I have received the following very generous donations from MD'ers.

£50 Donated by a well know MD'er that likes to fish at TBF. :sneaky::sneaky:
5 Piece Luggage Set including holdall / Carry All & Ready Rod Bag donated by @Yosemite Sam
Carry All & landing net head donated by @warrington63
Gold,Silver & Bronze Medal donated by @ukzero1
2 X 12 months site subs kindly donated by @davej @dealornodeal
60 Hooks tied to someones choice and a hookbox kindly donated by @ulladubulla

I'm completely in limbo at the moment as my mind tells me it's going and my body tells me it's not :(

Listen to the voice within. As long as you don't kiss anyone on the day you'll be fine.
You didn't used to worry about all the viruses you passed on at fishins :p

@Dave
I’ll check on here Sunday morning before I leave, so you can let us know whether you’re up to it on the day or @pete can tell us on arrival ?

Dave if at anytime you feel up to it, then don't risk it. It's a just a match, there will be another one next year.

Don't worry I am sure @Peter will survive the Winter without your nugget,

Important Update

@Dave @Peter @Northantslad @dirk @90's Gear @MOGZ @kev Coke @Krh57 @fish4alarf @ulladubulla @notneeded @legs230258 @Gixer13 @nutmeg @160642fishing @Whisker @Dchambo @tysontim @mattnewark @AFletcher22 @Barbelcatcher @cant compete

Lakeview have requested that the draw takes place at 09:30 Hrs as they have another match that is drawing at 09:00 Hrs and want to keep the two groups apart so new running times as follows:-

Draw 09:30 Hrs
Fish 11:00 Hrs to 16:00 Hrs

Apologies for the late change.

It doesn't look like I'll be going to the PP match :(
T has had the final say on it and told me I'd be stupid if I did it (or words to the effect of :))
And tbh she's right.

I'm not too good on a morning at the moment and to get there in time for the draw and a breakfast would mean setting off from here at 6:00am, up at 5:00am - not good before I start.
Followed by a 2hr/ 90mile drive - definitely not good.
Car sharing is out as Leeds is Tier 2 and I'd be a fool to stick my neck out and risk it being Mr Maggotdrowning, and coming down with team Mods captain Peter would get our names lambasted over the internet faster than a tin of chopped spam at Whiteacres

Once I got there I'd have to wheel my gear to the peg and back - that'd finish me off before I start
5 hours of fishing and an hour or so either side socialising (from a distance), 7 hours - not good, it'd knacker me if I wasn't already.
Then 2 hours drive/travelling back home - not a chance I'd manage it safely.

I'd be on the go from 6:00am to 7:00pm or thereabouts which if that doesn't see me off it would most likely result in being laid up for a couple of days afterwards going by present standards.

I didn't get out yesterday other than an hour walk with T and Winston on the fields, and that was enough.
Did the same today and been rough this after, there seems no let-up at the moment.
So tomorrow I'm aiming to get to a local pond for a few hours to get out, drown my sorrows and myself, the plus point is the forecast is fine.

I thought I'd post my reasoning publicly so Scribe wouldn't have to repeat it 22 times; and Peter is happy enough to represent Team Mods single handed ;)
He'll just have to owe me a nugget :p

Hey ho, 2020 is just a bad dream, one day we'll all wake up from it and hopefully put it all behind us (y)

See you all another time x

Bloody ell Dave if I knew you were that bad chip, I would have banned you anyway.

Seriously though it's a match, that's all at the end of the day. I know you don't like to let anyone down, but really If I was in your shoes I wouldn't even consider it.

You do enough for the MD Family keeping it all running and giving a bunch of 'neer do wells' a digital street corner to meet up on.

Look after yourself and tell T that Scribe has said you are allowed extra Hobnobs. :upthumb:

Shame you can't make it though, I had a feeling you were going to draw the winning peg as well, :D:D
