Entrance blocked at Beckingham Hall

Unfortunately the entrance gate at Beckingham Hall has been blocked by fly tippers.  Our Secretary has been down to the lake for a look and the tipper has made a thorough job of blocking the gate with around a skip load of general builder/landscape rubbish with some cans and bottles thrown in for variety’s sake.  This means that the only way into the lake for members, until the rubbish is cleared, is to use our old entrance up the hill opposite the house.  This should be passable in a 4wd vehicle but the track is fairly well rutted and will be more difficult with a 2wd vehicle especially in the wet.  Apologies for the inconvenience caused by this situation which is out of our control.

Found at Slough House Farm

A member who visited Slough House Farm on Friday 14th Oct has found what looks like a car parcel shelf or floor panel leaning against the car park fence. It may be that someone removed it to facilitate tackle movement and then forgot about it.  If the item is yours, and you would like it returned, please contact David the Secretary on the phone number shown in the rulebook and he will put you in touch with the member who has taken it home.

Howells carp match result

Our annual carp match was held at Howells over the weekend of 24th-25th Sep.  7 anglers fished and 17 fish were caught for a combined weight of 259lb.

1st place and retaining his title was Graham Surridge with 5 fish for 93lb 14oz.

2nd was Tony Hayden with 6 fish for 59lb 4oz

Winner of the Alan Hare Cup for the biggest fish caught in the competition was Shaun Birnie with a Common of 27lb 10oz, the same fish that won it last year – Breeze Block.

Thanks go to our sponsors Specimen Carp Baits for their bait prize donations.

The average size of carp caught was 15lb 3oz and £70 was raised for the carp stock fund.

MAS garments make the perfect Christmas gifts

If you are wondering what to buy the Maldon AS member in your life don’t forget that we have a number of hoodies, hats, caps and shirts in stock in various sizes.  Please contact Denise or Paul on 01621 857427 if you would like to make a purchase.

We can’t be certain if wearing a MAS hoodie helped Graham Surridge catch the heaviest weight of carp in the Howells carp match final two years running but we can’t rule it out either!
