We are planning several Meetings this year including the usual ones such as in Kent, Shropshire, Jersey and Essex, plus some new ones perhaps in South Wales and Scotland and maybe even reinstate the Meeting in Cambridgeshire. The 2019 Yorkshire Meeting venue was fantastic so we intend to rearrange that one, but earlier in the year as the short days in November gave us a arduous challenge to run all the competition events in daylight.
Picking dates for the meetings is not that easy as we only run them at the weekend to hopefully maximise the attendance and we avoid bank holidays. We also try to ensure that as many of the key BFCC members, who help to run the Meetings and/or provide tuition, are available too. Hence it does require a lot of time to organise things to balance all these considerations. As I have a big birthday to plan for James plus other big celebrations for some close family members, I will aim to keep those dates free too.
Regardless, once the dates are set, it means that I can then plan my own fishing trips around these dates (or in some cases such as Jersey, during the days around the Meeting). I plan to arrange lots of fishing in Wales, both North and South,plus in Scotland during 2020. Also, James fancies a few short fishing trips abroad, with a long holiday later in the year to Australia. Well, we need something more interesting to talk about in our FPs! So now just need to get out the calendar and get planning!
Whatever you are doing this weekend, enjoy and tight lines,
