I think it's going to be behind the retail park pretty much opposite Tilbury Ferry,i've never fished down there but once it's confirmed i'll pop down there at low water and try to get some pictures uploaded.Also if it is there it might work out better for some of you to come over on the ferry and i could run a shuttle service with all you gear.

Hi Shadow mate howaya, well I hope.!!!..............Myself and Whelkie were down Tilbury the other day and I was looking at the area you are describing..............it looked to me a very 'muddy'area which in my opinion is good, great for Flatties.............any idea where 'Codcrazy' has gone no word from him about the meet for nearly two weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!! after all he is supposed to be one of the organizers, what's occurred???? is he off line or what ??????, can anyone throw any light on the subject????


ALL THE BEST ................JOLI

Mmm Cliff was going to take up the mantle!
But as he says "A few were also a bit put out that the organiser had to pull out at the last minute, and the talk was to have one person that does not have the ties of family etc. and that could be there at every match, unless otherwise arranged, and would not have to drop out at the last minute......I did volunteer as I have no family, and currently no work committments, but this is entirely down to everybody else, there may be better people that would like to do this?? ".
The offer was there ! and now we have lost a member due to some people not backing him up.

Hi Paul,

I did notice the thread and asked openly that anyone can assist or help but got no reply."Cliff especially"
I texted him the other week as i did with evryone who i have on my phone, but he said being as he did not get the backing then he was a little upset and wouldn't be attending the third match.


I just don't want this meet every month to crumble as its a good chance to have a laugh do what we enjoy doing "Fishing" and raise some monies for the RNLI.

Have not heard from Shane since i was on holiday on or off the forum so am doing the best i can to keep its momentum going.

3rd charity match

Shadow mate,
dont forget your water wings on the off chance that your peg is next to me lol.
Cabrat,
i dont see any reason our monthly matches wont continue, its a great idea and a very worthy cause, if any body dont wont to join in cos they dont get there own way, well, that to me seems a bit daft as the RNLI and those who dont attend are the only losers.

And lighten up everyone, to organise these meets aint that easy, most of us have our family and lives to live, i have ran Martial Arts Clubs for 10yrs and unless you have had involvement in running /organising clubs/meets then you have no idea of the commitment you are making its not as easy as you think.
Instead of moaning we should all be patting Cabus on the back for the time and effort he puts into this, and also Kopite for standing in last minute.
Tim.

I know Cliff offered and i would of wlcomed his assistance but hey ho things happen.
This was set up as a monthly meet with a chance to all have a little sport banter and get some cash for a worthy cause.
Yes I have got commitments but will carry on as long as all you guys keep turning up and supporting it.
Luckily Frozentoes understands and supports my time sorting this out.
Like i have said from the beginning all input and advice from you guys is gratefully accepted

Where do yu want the 4th one to be and what we gonna target
All advice much appreciated.

Cabrat
