Its all on again!
August Club night – 18th, the Annual Club Auction
Another big night on the Club Calendar. Start time of 7pm with the doors open about 6.15pm for the delivery of your surplus fishing and other assorted gear.
Our outstanding auction team of John Hobson and Martin Heal will be back to battle the bids and clinch the sales. So, do not be tempted to scratch your nose or wave at your friend. Even a wink could land you a bid.
It goes without saying that the pandemic has affected all of us in some way and many of our donors to the auction will have been affected as well. There are promises of some good gear so far, but we need you the CAC Club members and your friends to help make the night a success and you normally do so. Please bring something along that you think others will bid for.
Club member Bob Jones has donated a terrific collection of Fishing Books with some noted titles. Authors such as George Ferris, O S Hintz, John Parsons, Bob South, both Malcolm & Adrian Bell, Ron Giles, and plenty more. A collection of over 50 books. These are classics.
Reg McClintock has also offered another box of his exceptional flies and if we are lucky, some more of his now famous cod and groper traces.
I am told we will also have the famous SAFA toolboxes and plenty of surprises.
On the night please see Barry and get your auction bidding number. Tea and Coffee will be available during the night so please help yourself from the kitchen.
