One for your Diary - Friday 7th June Fish Fund Disco and optional Karaoke at Bar 57 Pershore
We need to continue to raise funds for the current and future stocking of the pools. Club member and legend Alan Gardner is doing the disco and I will provide the optional Karaoke. Bar 57 is on the high street in Pershore and looks like a perfect venue with plenty of seating close and further away from the music. It does stay open til 2am so gives everyone plenty of time to get 'Dutch courage' if they want to try Karaoke. There will not be an entrance charge but early on in the evening someone will be going around to get donations. Alan and myself will give our time for nothing. There will also be a raffle, not a long drawn out affair just a few good prizes. If anyone has something they could donate then please contact myself or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot make it but would like to give a donation specifically for the disco then please contact me or any committee member and we will make sure it makes up part of the disco fund raising total. Come and support us even if it is for a few hours. I am staying in a local hotel so I can have a couple of bevies.
This Weeks Matches
Easter Saturday Open 20th April Easter Egg Match
This SATURDAY is the Evesham Jubilee traditional Easter Egg Open Match.
There are a lot of great Easter Eggs and 4 or 5 bottles of wine up grabs. These have been donated so nothing has been taken out of the Pools money. Match fee's are £12 for members and £14 for non members with a full £10 going onto the payouts. With fantastic weather and a big turnout expected please arrive by 8.30 for 9.00 draw. Fishing 10 - 3.
No match on Easter Sunday
Easter Bank Holiday Monday 22nd April Open Fish Fundraiser
An extra match to raise some money for the fish fund and give us an excuse to go fishing. Planning to have lots of fun. Match fee is £12 with £5 going towards the fish fund and £7 going into the pools, this should give us a good payout. This match will be on Jubilee. Arrive for 8.30 for 9.00 draw.
Please don't forget the on-going fund raising for the 3 stages of the Bream stocking. The goal is to pay off the £2300 for the first batch and then fund two more batches over the next two years. It is going well but we need to keep the momentum going. Donate by cheque to Treasurer Bob Evans 188 The Ridgeway, New End, WORCESTER B96 6NP or if on the internet via the 'justgiving' page.
You can also just trickle cash to me or Bob at any matches, it all adds up!
Ensuring the new bream live to a ripe old age
A polite notice to ask all members to pamper the bream, they are not anywhere near as hardy as carp.
1. Pleasure anglers please release catches ASAP by lowering the fish into the water using your landing net.
2. Match anglers must have a separate net for silvers AND ensure that silvers are weighed separately from the carp.
There has been lots of great things happening regarding the Bream. It will be hard for me to put everything on this 'News' page as this promotes the matches, so it is imperative that all members join the forum. It is really easy to join and if you are able to read this then you will have no problem setting up access.
We have managed to get over 300lb's of bream between 2 - 3lbs into Jubilee Pool. They were added Friday morning and I have to say it was an amazing sight. The chairman has stated that this is phase 1 of 3 with an aim to get 900 - 1200lbs over the next two years. Obviously this has to be funded by donations as subscriptions must go to pay the rent.
It has certainly put the club on the map and we need members to take advantage of this buzz to get new members. As the club offers £15 off membership for members who recruit new members perhaps 'ride this crest of a wave' and donate the £15 to the fish fund?
We have started a just giving page to raise the money for these fish and hopefully sometime in the future we will have enough members not have to do this. This is the goal.

A cracking match on Withies with close placings. However first place was comfortably secured by Ian Pitman on Peg 25 with 33lb 2oz.
