Rutland Water Event - an update

Monday's PAC event on Rutland Water will be the club's biggest ever event, events organiser Mark Skinner said tonight.

Nearly 100 members will be fishing the Anglian Water trout reservoir in a day which will raise money for our adopted good cause, the children's cancer charity CLIC.

They'll have the chance to win a day's fishing donated by our hosts - as well as one or two other prizes in a special raffle.

That's on top of whatever we catch on a beautiful water which offers a perfect venue to unwind for those who are attending the PAC's 30th Birthday bash at Stoneleigh over the weekend.

Mark said: "It's the biggest event we've ever staged and just about every boat is booked.

"Members will be meeting in the car park from 7am and once all our members are booked in we hope to get all the boats out by 9am."

Breakfast will be served from 7.30am. Members should head for the lodge in Normanton Road, Edith Weston, Rutland LE15 8HD.

Mark said those unable to attend the Convention would also be able to obtain a copy of PAC30 - the acclaimed book published to celebrate 30 years of the club - at the event.

"Mark Barrett will be fishing the event and has said that if any members attending would like to buy a copy to contact him he will bring some along on the day, you can contact Mark on his email address, wit6372@aol.com ."

Rutland is just one of a calender of events stretching across the winter, with several new waters being opened up to PAC members.

We are close to clinching access to another trout water, details will be made available via Pikelines.

Limited places on some events will be available at Saturday's Convention, where the draw for places on the Lake of Menteith will also be made.
