Memorable Dates

MEMBER FUN EVENING
12th June 2014. Members should meet at Wolfclyde bridge at 7:30pm.
This is not a competition but a chance for members to gather and chat about the season so far, go away and fish and then meet again to chat about the nights sport. The aim of the fun evening is purely social.
