    It's finally over and we've won 

    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!

    Rumours are they have turned down the claim for the record from this capture. I hadn't even realised they had put a claim in for it .
    The right decision in my book .

    Well the Auction went well ,over 4 grand raised .... some absolute bargains were had by the people who attended , including me .
    You should of seen Andys face when I had a bid on something he wanted
     
    Did manage a few hours fishing & was hopeful when I had fish heads down on my spots halfway through the Auction & really fancied a fish when I got the rods out .
    But unfortunately had to leave before anything rattled off .

    You are not going to catch a racehorse or greyhound and try to claim a record for weight!
    You cannot compare the two.
    Millions and millions of ££££££'s have been spent over the years on improving the bloodline of racehorses and to a lesser extent greyhounds to win races and make profits for their owners.
    There is a huge industry that has been around for years and years and years for improving the performance of horses, 
    This carp was "bred" purely to claim a record on weight.
    It was stuffed to the gills on high protein food just to fatten it up.
    It might as well have been fed a diet of big macs and fries!
    Two totally different scenarios/

    Apparently it's never been caught before and word is it was stocked a week before at 74 .
     
    This is going to ruin the records, and go the way of the wells catfish and make the records unclassified
