It was just 10 years ago,
November 2000, when
the VAC membership totals passed the 1,000 mark. That was a real milestone in
itself at a time of uncertainty for angling clubs. This success was not by
chance. For many years the VAC has been fortunate to have a well balanced General
Committee (GC) lead by talented Chairmen who have formulated and then
followed a clear but careful growth strategy. This has allowed for the additional income
from annual growth to enhance existing venues and
to deliver on the promise of at least one new water per year.
This growth continued to the point
where last season we ended on 1,987 members. An amazing achievement when you
consider that most angling clubs in the South-East are struggling to maintain
membership numbers. At the end of September membership for the current season
stood at exactly 1,900. Traditionally we get an influx of new subscriptions when we launch,
from November 1st, our Half-Year option. Therefore, this year, the GC has agreed that the 2,000th
member will get his or her payment refunded in recognition of this historic
Letters are now going out to those
who have yet to rejoin from last year. If you are one of these or if you are a
prospective new member then now is the time to check out our membership options
and sign up to probably the best angling club in the Soouth-East.

options including the Half -Year deal please click the Subscription tab above.
Not a Leather....technically this 32lb caught by
Tom Stevens is a Mirror as it has a handful of scales.
This season has been a great one
for specimen fish on VAC and associate waters. Not just carp but big barbel,
roach, chub, bream, perch...the list goes on. Unlike some clubs the VAC actively
supports its specialist anglers with it's own committee, web pages and numerous
events through the season such as the popular barbel and stick float days. Check
out the link on the top left for more details.
Please note that our own new
freehold fishery is now closed for redevelopment work. An e-news will go out
when it's ready to re-open
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.

Keith Speers put his theory into
practice on the Stick Float clinic at Marford last month and landed this 'record
gudgeon (!) along with several much larger lumps before letting his 'students'
have a go.
It's bad enough when you have to
strip off after falling in...but then to have someone take a photo - arghh.
