31/03/2020 NON-FISHING GUESTS

The Society's Membership Secretary is receiving an increasing number of renewals with a request to add a non-fishing guest.

This historically was most often utilised to enable an angler to take a partner or friend along
with them but applications are now regularly asking to add a child to a membership and for this reason it is
deemed sensible to clarify what is and is not allowed in this respect.

All applications for members wishing to add a non-fishing minor over the age of 8
will be fully considered but no application to include a minor under the age of 8 will be accepted.

As it is difficult to gauge the age of a minor from a photograph,
any member wishing to add a minor over the age of 8 will
need to include proof of their age with their photograph.

It is hoped that this clarification will assist members when submitting
their renewals and avoid any future confusion on this subject.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

1) Renewal forms are on back of the AGM letter as it states.
They also will be on website.
If you’ve thrown AGM letter away without reading it and didn’t know it was on back.

The club generally sends out another but this isn’t a certainty so be aware.

2) Season ends 31st April so renewals will need to be in before season ends as renewal date is also 31 st April.
There’s no room to extend renewal date as it’s a massive job for the membership secretary.
So if you want to fish you need to either photocopy the back page or your book
or take a picture on your mobile so when bailiffing we know you have
a valid membership as it needs to be on you if you on complex.

3) Please see you can now pay for membership via bank transfer.
Please ensure you follow the guidance as stated on renewal letter.
Not putting your name and ID on the reference or sending it the receipt
will make it highly likely your membership won’t be processed as we won’t know whose money is whose.

COMPULSORY USE OF DIP TANKS
EVERY MEMBER MUST FULLY SUBMERGE AND COVER EVERY PART OF THEIR
NETS, SLINGS, AND CRADLES / HIGH SIDED MATS
THIS INCLUDES THE SIDES AND TOPS OF THE CRADLES,
IN THE DIP TANK SOLUTION BEFORE TAKING TO THE LAKESIDE.

FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN EXPULSION!


IF ANY OF THE ABOVE EQUIPMENT HAS LEFT THE QUARRY LANE COMPLEX
IT MUST BE RE-DIPPED ON YOUR RETURN.
YOU ARE ADVISED TO WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER DIPPING.
YOU ARE ADVISED TO USE GLOVES
IF YOU SUFFER FROM SKIN CONDITIONS.

BY ORDER OF THE CDAS COMMITTEE.

ALL MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE,
After routinely reviewing cctv it is noticeable that
some members are still not dipping sufficiently.
The whole of the mat / cradle must be totally covered by the disinfectant solution.
Leaving the mat folded up inside the case and dipping the case
is not sufficient as you cannot guarantee the folded-up
equipment gets coated with solution.
Please ensure you take all parts of the mats cradles out of its cover bags
and dip them individually, thus ensuring all parts are covered.
IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP OUR FISH SAFE

Members are advised that due to the fact that several fish have been caught recently with one or more rigs in them,
the Society’s Bailiffs have been asked to undertake examination of members rigs at the bankside.
Please check your rigs carefully and if asked to show them to one of our Bailiffs, please comply with their request.
This course of action is clearly necessary to avoid more of our prized fish stocks suffering
as a result of poor rigs and your co-operation is greatly appreciated.

Saving Swims

It is an increasing problem on site that members are reserving swims for their friends
which is a clear breach of Bylaw 16 in your Membership Book.
Please desist from blocking swims which you are not personally using,
to enable all members to have the same opportunity to fish in their preferred swim if it is not already occupied.
The Societies bailiffs have been asked to be vigilant in overseeing that this request is observed by everyone
to ensure a fully democratic and fair process exists for all.
Advance thanks for your kind attention to this request.
