PADCAC Wednesday Evening Summer League 2020

There will be a series of 7 matches at both Cadover and Filham this comming summer. They will be run seperately, so don't feel that you are obligated to fish both leagues. They will be open to all members of the club, although numbers will be limited to the number of pegs available at both venues

Please don't be put off from "having a go" as these matches are a light hearted affair with a competitive element thrown in, which is totally optitional (pools money

The draw for the matches will be at 17.00 or 5.00pm (whichever flicks your switch) and the all in will be at 17.45 or (5.45pm) and the all out will be at 20.45 (8.45pm). Anyone turning up after the draw will be drawn a peg by the organiser who will carry the draw bag with them after the draw. (They will not be eligible for the Golden Peg for that particular match)

There will be 18 places at Filham and 22 places at Cadover. Names will be taken for places and will operate on a 'first come first served' basis. and as we all know from previous experience the amount of people that book in at the start of the series rarely finish,so even if you can only make one or two don't hesitate to call for availability of places up to the Tuesday evening before the match. A 'no show' of people entering and booking to to fish the series, without informing the Match Sec or Assistant Match Sec will deem that place open to any person who wishes to fish the next match.

There will be 7 matches at each venue and the best 5 of the 7 matches will count for points for the overall position in that respective series. Points will be awarded as follows:-

1st 1 Point

2nd 2 Points

3rd 3 Points, etc etc

Scales

Scales will be placed in an appropriate position. Anyone who catches a fish that requires weighing, will have to collect them, weigh the fish and be witnessed by a neighbouring angler, and keep a record until the competition ends. If any other angler requires the scales during the match, the person who has them, takes the scales to whoever requires them and witnesses the catch, and so on.

Nets

Fish freindly keep nets only please

Those of you who have 2 keep nets could you please use them both, ie.silver fish and carp kept seperate. Bream over 3 lbs can be put in your carp keep net.
