Our first newsletter of the year was posted today and members should receive this within the next couple of days. The newsletter contains information about the river Rede which members should read carefully. The other information enclosed contains details of the minutes from our 2012 AGM and the agenda for the 2013 AGM. The date of the 2013 AGM is the 6th February commencing at 8.00pm and will, as usual, be held at Birtley Golf Club. We will also have our usual buffet that will be taken at some point through the evening’s agenda. Please ensure you make a note of the date in your diaries, lap tops, I pads or whatever contraption you have at your disposal these days.

Should you wish to raise any item under Any Other Business then please send this in writing to club secretary Dave Wilson at least one week before the meeting. Any nominations for committee should also be sent to Dave along with the persons name, proposer and seconder again within the same time scale. The meetings are generally well attended and we look forward to seeing faces old and new this year with the main topic of conversation amongst members no doubt being the horrendous fishing conditions we had to encounter last season.
