New format for VAC Carp Match....
After considerable review the
format for the annual VAC Matt Mills Memorial Carp Knock-out
competition has been revised and hope that this will
inspire a few more competitors to take part this year.
We have tried to make the competition a little bit more
interesting with pay outs on all the qualifiers and final, and
opportunities to fish other qualifiers if unsuccessful on the
first round. Venues will be as previous years at Lancaster Lake,
Smallford and Moor Mill and to make it even more interesting the
final will be held over two legs, one at Moor Mill and one at
Smallford. Weights will be converted to a points system so that
weight of fish caught becomes irrelevant.
For more information please contact
Andy Killinger or check out the

Following agreement at the recent AGM the new adult annual
membership rate will rise by £2 to £92. New members and previous
members who have allowed the membership to lapse will pay a £40
joining fee plus £4 for a gate key.
Other memberships will increase pro-rata. Existing members will
receive invitations to rejoin during May. Existing tickets
remain valid until June 16 and over-the-counter membership from
Verulam Tackle and Colney Tackle will be available around
mid-May. Also around the same time we will open up our online
system for new applications with payments accepted via Paypal.
CHANGED: After refreshing
the VAC home pages every month or two since March 2000 I've decided
to slow things down a little pending a complete site makeover
hopefully later in 2017. So, for the time being, each quarter of the
calendar year will see a fresh home page published rather than
monthly or bi-monthly. Any urgent notices, e.g. new venues, will be
added as and when to the existing pages. As ever, I would love to
receive your contributions, be they pictures, articles or just
feedback. And remember that you can look back at all the old issues
via the Archive link. Thanks....Stan, Webmaster
