Reel People Christmas Meal and A.G.M
Once again the food was excellent but the turnout for the meeting was disappointing with only 14 members attending.
Minutes of last years meeting were passed as a true record.
Chairmans Report - Rob thanked Tom for running some of the matches in his absence,and Vic and Gerry for their help also.He also thanked the sponsors of the 2015 matches.
Achievement trophies were given to Dennis Sambridge and Tom Mitchell for match weight over 100 lbs.
The Chairmans Merit Award went to Vic George for his services to Reel People since he joined the club.
The balance sheet was discussed and although a very small loss was shown the club is still in a relatively healthy position financially.

No proposals had been received.
It was agreed that membership and match fees for 2016 would remain the same as 2015 at £10 single £12.50 joint and £7 per match.
It was also agreed that any member wishing to fish a match where we were restricted to a certain number of pegs would be liable to pay the peg fee if they were not to turn up for said match.
THIS IS VERY,VERY IMPORTANT
when returning your membership forms for the 2016 season to Tina in the section asking for 'medication' please list all meds being taken and DO NOT put 'as last year',Tina is not allowed to retain previous years forms under the Data Protection Act, all the forms are taken to every match as a precaution in case a member takes ill and emergency services have to be called so that they can see what medication a member is on .
