A number of our members were out at the weekend providing maintenance to the duck nesting tubes on club land.
Hopefully we have now said goodbye to the Beast from the East and on to better weather.
The Environment Agency has issued a warning due to the heavy winds and high tides expected in the coming days. The incoming tides are expected to be faster moving and higher than previously timetabled.
According the Oxford English dictionary a scurry is a situation of hurried and confused movement. If you were with us yesterday you might agree with the accuracy. Some dogs hurried, some were confused and all had a splashing good time.
The work party on the pond turned into a dirty days work. Reed pulling and general maintenance was carried out by a number of members last Sunday. Young members got involved by helping on the bank side. A real good start to the clean up was made. Some members took a dip in the pond to cool off, or so they said.
We even had a couple of spectating swans watching over us as we worked.
We are now counting down the last 48 hours of our auction.
You still have time to bid so make sure you don’t miss out.
If you are looking for a days rough shooting, or a dedicated pond flight, or a day fishing with friends, or maybe car needs an MOT, or you are a collector of rare pin badges we have lots that cover every taste.
There is now less than a week to place your bids.
We have been asked by a couple of people about the guide prices for the auction. They are just that, a guide. We have taken the information from previous BASC auctions as to how much a days shooting would be and used that as a rough starting point for bidding. Please bid what you can afford and feel comfortable paying. Some of the opportunities we have available are unique and haven’t been offered up for auction prior to this.
