MEMBERS MEET

Post by rabbi2 »

The thought just crossed my mind that I haven't met one of you guys yet and I wondered just how difficult it would be to organise a bi-monthly meet for members with a view to buying, selling, trying out rods, reels ect and exchanging ideas. I know that this is what the forum is all about but it may just take off who knows. Of course it would be for various areas around the coast and locations. Let me know your views on this (would it work or wouldn't it)

It could work as another site i go on do a similar thing. i might find it hard though myself because of work commitments. Maybe organize weekend meets every 3 months for fishing outing's at different areas. e.g south one time then west another and so on. See how many people want to go then book a hotel or b&b for that particular weekend. It's worth a try and see how it goes.

If it really took of I myself am prepared to travel about 200 miles although I realise most folk can't do this, I am prepared to offer free transport to a couple of lads in my area.

It would be good to have a friendly comp or fishing session, then go on for a knees up at a local pub.

Ok lads lets stop talking and do summat about it. I wonder if our good friend mrix could organise summat and take a list of names for various locations that would consider attending such a meet. How about it mrix could you help organise summat? PLEASE.

I might draw your attention to the Orford Beach Clean event which gets guys from all over coming to Orford in Suffolk to clean up the beach for a few hours and then we fish all night. It should be quarterly but we have an issue with breeding seasons at the time we should be going in the spring so it may become a four month event. Anyone is welcome so keep an eye out and have a look back through the East coast forum for the reports.

Having said that, events on other coasts would be welcome should anyone have the time to put something together.

Just had a look at MEMBERS MEET and out of 144 folk viewing it only 4 have bothered to reply. What a pathetic response. Even it they weren't interested at least they could say so.




A dissapointed rabbi!

You have to realise that most of those people that have viewed are non-members.
At this time there are only 16 members online and 186 guests !!!!
Also the post has only been up for a few hours what do you expect !!

Anyway like Dunc says, keep an eye out for the Orford clean/fish thing.
A fantastic event and I will be looking for ways to raise a few quid for the RNLI while we are at it :D :D
If you post possible venues and possible dates I am sure you will get more response.
