Everyone
I have booked the Test at Timsbury for the annual fish in, on Sunday 18th November 2007. The cost this year will be 18 per person with a maximum of 20 anglers fishing. fishing is from 8.00 am to sunset and this year packed lunches are delivered to you on the river bank @ 5.00 per lunch; if people are interested.
As we did for Gerry last year on the Itchen, we will be having a toast at the end of the day to commemorate the life of Alan 'Meatballs' Campbell who tragically died last month. Sue and I will provide the drinks.

So far the following have indicated they would like to go

1. Me
2. Sue Urwin
3. KAYC (thanks for the leg work)
4. Vidar
5. Anderoo
6. Goosequill
7. Steve Walker
8. Will Wilkinson
9. Anthony 78
10. Anthony 78
11. Leon Roskilly
12. Andrew Boyd
13. Christian Caudell
14. Dave Harden
15. Wyeknot
16. Jiqotai
17. Chavender
18. Wanzelbin
19. Seph
20. Malc

List Closed.
This year as payment is initially by deposit I will not need the cash until about a week before we hold the event so I will PM those interested when I want paying.
There is space in the Sutton Scotney Travelodge should anyone fancy turning up for a social on Saturday night, there is a good pub in the village.

After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.

Put me down please Tony - thanks for organising it. A toast to Alan is a nice touch.

Could you also put down Goosequill please?
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Tony,

Can you put me down for a place? I would love to be there and try and catch a grayling for Meatballs.

Regards,

Steve C.
