More club notes:

Key holders for the tackle store and Library will be listed in the December B.B.

To ensure that accurate accounts of sales of carbide can be kept will members please let Garth Dell have as many Marvel tins or similar, as you can muster.  Members will remember that this is the way in which we sold carbide in the past.  Each type of container can be weighed and the amount of your sale recorded in the paying-in book.  Throw away your old bags but keep your tins!

A basic supply of tackle will be kept in the Belfry and the tackle store which will suffice for general needs.  Members requiring large quantities for away trips should apply to John Dukes in the first instance.  John is on the telephone or if that is not convenient then drop him a letter – giving him plenty of warning so that arrangements for the pick-up can be made. When returning the tackle make sure that it is clean and dry and make sure that it is returned to John in person. DO NOT LEAVE RETURNED TACKLE IN THE BELFRY OR ELSEWHERE ON SITE.
