The main problem is most of the regular social attendees,  don't come on here anymore,  was a time when you had to get ya name down quick so not to miss out & that's was with over 20 going . We still all go on socials just not arranged on here anymore .  But there's nothing stopping  us setting up a new scene on here , & depending on the interest will decide the size of the venue . The two guys I was in France with last week I met on here many years ago .

Trick is to be sure no one is out of pocket!! 

My first thought venue for a social is linear. Plenty of swims & fish. Pay as you go. I believe we can book out swims if there's more than 10. 

Booking smaller waters will involve trusting someone with the money, etc.

I don't mind being treasurer..... I am currently organising, (and holding the funds) for a golfing trip to Lincolnshire for 48 members of the golf monthly forum, something I have done for the past 5 years. This amounts to over £5,000.00

Also, I'm holding funds from the 6 of us going to Lake Beauregard in July. 

I consider myself to be totally trustworthy and would offer full transparency.

I've heard good things about horseshoe and see that it has hosted the forum previously. I believe there's a trophy too!! 

I don't get out fishing as much as I'd like, so having a date & social to look forward to is something I'm well up for!!

Yes mate ... my better half made the trophy for us back in 2012 , it's got a good few names on it now from various socials up & down the country & abroad .  Currently up in Telford with my mate who came with me last week , he won last year in France for the biggest fish of the week .

From my very limited knowledge of socials, small lake bookings don't envoke much socialising, its more about getting your spot going, too many lines out shuts down the bites, some of the group have a hike back to base for the grub up. 

Fishing the same bank with a few mates however I've had great times.

I have very limited venue knowledge, but somewhere like brasenose should result in a good social and a fish or 2 for most attendants.

That would work as its rectangular , and swims are very close to each other

Just spoke to mate , who holds  an event on brasenose most years . You can only book the whole lake between November & March & he pays £1.400 for 48 hours . So you would have to get a fair few anglers to make it affordable.  Not normally my cup of tea but an option . 

Another option is a cash injection for any of your syndi's,  could raise important funds for lake work /fencing / stocking / peg work etc . So if any of you think your syndi would be up for it & it's members , could be a way forward too . Until you know numbers though it will be hard find the right venue tbh .

Merrington ticks all the boxes and we’ve had a few socials on there that have been a success (Nige zig masterclass) although I believe he’s banned zig fishing on there now. It’s a decent water to nab a bite there’s facilities on there the only problem I see is actually getting the numbers to make it affordable 🤔

Shame that would be. 

I would look forward to hearing any info he has to offer on zigs, that and not having to buy boilies anymore!!

I'll struggle to make it this year due to the baby lads.

Straying off topic but for a good reason.. how is little one? Does the house have that wonderful hint of poo and formula milk in the air? Hoping all is well and you’re getting some sleep. Just keep in the back of your mind..this is the easy bit!😂
