Get' em Whilst They're Young
It's vital for the long term
future of angling clubs such as the VAC that young people continue to take up
angling. In recent years many clubs, including us, have been increasingly active
in encouraging junior membership.
Our efforts have now taken a very
big step forward with the appointment earlier this year of a new Junior
Development Offcer (Jon Webb, pictured below) and the funding of several VAC
officers to gain Level 1 and Level 2
angling coach accreditation
With this new enthusiasm in the
club, head coach
Roger Smith supported by our other qualified coaches, has been running a
number of sessions for VAC junior members, predominantly at Riverside Rd. The
club also agreed earlier this year to significantly reduce junior membership
fees and juniors aged 12-16 can now join the VAC for just £18 with no
extra joining fee. Juniors over 16 and under 18 on June 16 2011 can join
for just £35.
All in all a lot has been happening
in recent months to support our younger members. For lots more information why

link on the navigation bar above.
MEGA CARP WEIGHTS ON VAC MATCH
3,000lb of carp
This was the total weighed
in by 27 VAC anglers fishing our most recent fixture at a commercial
water in Essex. To save your fingers that's over 110lb per angler. The
VAC match section has enjoyed yet another great season so far. For more
results and information on forthcoming fixtures click the Match
button on the left bar.
Fishers Green Consortium
As the largest club in the
Fishers Green Consortium we are delighted to welcome new members who
are particularly keen to fish the former CEMEX fishery.
We appreciate you have a
choice of 11 clubs so we hope you will recognise the great value the VAC offers
with eight rivers venues, six still water complexes and access to eight
other consortiums in addition to Fishers Green.
Membership for 2010-11 Season
We've learnt that some who
were members last year think that if they've not renewed by June 16 then
they have to pay a joining fee again. This is not correct. So long as
you rejoin this season at any time you do not need to pay the joining
fee. However, should you not renew until next season you previous
membership will have been deemed to have lapsed. You will retain your
member ID, it stays with you for life, but if you let your membership
lapse for one or more complete seasons a joining fee will be required
when you come back. If you were a member last season and have not yet
renewed you can download a form, get a form from one of our local tackle
shops or, best of all, renew on-line via
Member Services. Once you have completed your details you will need
to print out and post back the form with payment and pictures if

WE GOT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS?
Remember, that unless your email
address is registered on Club DB, our membership database, we can't keep you up
to date via e-news nor can we accept your application to join the VAC Forum. To
check and update your details see the Subscriptions page
Club DB, our
excellent member database, is now serving us well with members able to
log in and update their details at any time.
However, a large number of
members have not yet sent in or uploaded a passport style picture which
we will need to print up your next membership card. We believe we have
now resolved some the technical difficulties but for those who cannot
upload a suitable picture please find time to either email your photo
(quoting ID number) or pop a picture in the post to the Registrar. More
details on the Subscriptions page.
