A big thanks to Robert Paul for helping me organise this competition .We also held a charity competition on Bradley's lake in Tobermore the day after our very successful open day and raised £360- for Charis. Our two weekends away trips turned out very successful once again, and a big thanks once again to Philip Maguire for all his help throughout the year, and especially on our away trips.I would like to thank my outgoing assistant competition secretary Ruth Arrell for all her help over the last two seasons. I am back in for another year, so hope things go as well as last season.Seamus Donnelly & Wesley McClenaghan are my assistants this season.
