Dear Members,

Just a short newsletter to inform you that the ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will be held at 8pm Monday 20th April 2015, at The Alpine Gasthof Restaurant, Whitworth Road Rochdale OL120JG.

The following proposals will be discussed:-

1. Any proposal to relinquish control of, or sell on a RWAS fishery, must be supported by 75% of the RWAS senior membership at that time in a written ballot, in order for the proposal to be passed.

2. Any proposal to merge RWAS with another society or societies, must be supported by 75% of the RWAS senior membership at that time, in a written ballot, in order for the proposal to be passed.

3. To increase subscriptions :- Seniors from £40 to £45. OAP and Disabled from £20 to £22.50. No increase for Juniors.

The election of Officers, Committee and Bailiffs, will also be on the agenda as well as the business of Subs, Honorariums, Life Members etc. There will be the reports from the club officers, match secretary, bailiffs, treasurer, fishery officer (including stocking and work on our waters) and webmaster. Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to ask them any questions and have your say.

There are currently vacancies for the posts of Treasurer, Secretary and two committee members.

Although there is business to attend to, the AGM is also a social occasion and once the business has been concluded there will be the presentation of the trophies to our match winners and a free buffet. So come along, it’s an enjoyable evening and it will be good to see you.

The Match Calendar for 2015/16, is included with the newsletter and can also be found on the website. Bank work between pegs 2 and 8 at the Dell will begin soon. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience.

A couple of reminders :- Membership Card – Always have it with you. Litter – If it’s in your peg, it’s yours, please take it with you, thanks.

If you have had a call from Barry (our treasurer) recently, please respond prior to the AGM, or on the night, thanks.

Jim (Secretary).
