Membership competitions

Membership competitions for ’09-‘10
There will be two competitions revolving around memberships running through ’09 and into ’10.
The first will be based upon the special 3 year deal that is being offered until it’s conclusion on 31st April ’10.
ALL members taking up the scheme will be entered into a draw for a chance to win 2 prizes, both prizes consist of a PAIR of FREE SPIRIT pike rods picked from their range.
FREE SPIRIT rods are superb bits of kit and very much at the top of the tree.
The FREE SPIRIT competition shall be drawn in MAY 2010
(All those who have already taken up the scheme will be entered)
The second is our “Win a day with” competition, which is always a firm favourite (this years with Dave Kelbrick was a huge success).
This year we have the one and only Eddie Turner stepping up to show the lucky winner a good time and hopefully a few fish.To enter this competition you simply have to recommend a new member to join the PAC and ensure that your details (memb. No. and name are also on the form)
The list will then be drawn in MAY/JUNE ’10 but fished at a time to suit Eddie.
For those recommending a new member, you can be entered into the draw up to a maximum of three times but please recommend as many people as you can to join.

Piking 2009

Convention time
It is that time again, the piking masses will once again descend on Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire for a one-day bonanza comprising all that makes piking great.
Speakers this year are:

Graham Booth, one of Norfolk’s finest giving his first ever talk, over 30 years of experience and Graham’s wit are sure to make this one memorable session.

Mike Green, from deadbait to lure and on into fly fishing, the gentleman of the sport brings his humour and knowledge to an exciting talk.

Ian Weatherall, the quiet man at the PAC, Ian will entertain and impart skills and secrets best known only to him and his close friends – one not to miss.

Mark Barrett & Denis Moules, definitely not the quiet type, ex PAC secretary and all round superstar Mark combined with truly accomplished fenland piker Denis reveal a comprehensive look at fenland piking.

There are some great new products on show, from the likes of Chico’s lures, Greys Prowla launch as well as Waterwolf, together with the usual crowd, Neville Fickling, the Friendly Fisherman, ET and others.

So make sure that date – Saturday 26th September is in your diary, and remember those of you that drink Guinness in the bar (and you know who you are), it is Guinness’ 250th birthday too!
Bring a friend, neighbour, fishing colleague and let’s make the 2009 PAC convention better than ever.

Tickets are available on the door £12.00 for members, £14.00 for non-members and under 14’s go free.
