Convention trials big screen TV link

A TV link is being set up so talks at his year's Pike Anglers Club Convention can be screened live in the main hall, PAC chairman Colin Goodge said today.

That means those manning stalls won't miss out on the speakers, while anglers visiting the event won't have to spend all day in the lecture theatre if they want to take time out to shop and socialise.

"We'll be trialling this so people can shop for tackle and spend time on the stalls without missing out on the talks, as there's a very busy programme lined up for Stoneleigh and people will want to catch as much as they can," Colin said.

Entrance timings are also being brought forward, to give people a chance to browse the stalls and grab a coffee or a bite to eat before the speakers get under way at 10.30am.

Doors open for advance ticket holders from 9am, while tickets will be available on the door from 9.30 - both times subject to confirmation.
