    Apologies for crashing this thread but I'm after tench advice of any shape and form for Horseshoe please ?

    I don't do so much carping now (I had one of the original 15 year Horseshoe tickets), but I am a mad keen tencher.

    PM me if you don't want to take up this thread with off topic tenching ! Thanks !

     

    Give Miles a call at Horseshoe, he'll put you right. I know the Tenchfishers have a weekend on there later in the year

    YES! Alan and I are well up for this, Phil. We too are utterly mad busy with the wrought iron stuff but I could juggle things to get there. High time we met up and I want to shake a few hands at Horseshoe.

    Andy, Stoogie...up for this? Anyone else?

    Ian.

    I can't see a problem, date dependant,

    :D

    From Tim Paisley

    It's good news week… There is a press release going out from the Carp Society announcing that the four deposed directors – Malcolm Coller, David Mannall, Derek Buxton and Shane Thompson – have finally conceded defeat in the 'boardroom battle' and will play no further part in Society affairs, as directors or members. The four have made a substantial contribution towards the Society's legal costs. For those of you who don't know what this is about, keep an eye on the press for fuller details, esp Carpworld and Carp-Talk, to which I contribute. It has been a protracted, sometimes nerve-racking, legal battle, with the beginnings going back nearly two years. Massive thanks for the support the Society has had from many individuals, and some members of the trade, and for the fund-raising efforts of Mick Dee, his team, and supporters, and Kev Knight for making that avenue possible. During this process there has been the odd comment along the lines of 'Why bother?' Well, in a nutshell, the approximate £2,000,000 that the Society and its assets represent was built over a 30-year-plus period by the world of carp fishing for the future, and its status had to be preserved.
    Well done to John Seal, Bill Ward, Greg Fletcher, Steven Hall, Miles Carter, Marsh Pratley, Paul Boichat, Brian Sefton, Sabrina Widdows, Steve Bowles, the Society's life members, and chairman Derek Stritton for helping make this outcome possible. I have been proud to have been part of that team, which had to hang tough through some scary, and, for a handful, potentially individually ruinous, legal ramifications. There is a significant shortfall between the Society's costs and what they have been able to recoup, so the fund-raising will continue for some time to come. Give whatever support you can, please. The Society is once again a democracy, accountable to its re-growing membership, as it was when it was created in May 1981. When this legal process started the voting membership had been eroded to 10, or 12, plus the key, seemingly overlooked by the previous board, life members. What a result!
