So members of the River Kelvin Angling Club will soon be receiving the annual reports and accounts of the club. It is also the notice of when the AGM will be taking place. Last week I received a letter stating the AGM would be taking place on Thursday 25th January at 7 pm in Partck Burgh Hall. I duly put this date in my diary. After spending around 45 mins putting over 400 leaflets in envelopes and then sticking on stamps we found that the date is in fact wrong in the newsletter (and on the letter sent out to the committee). It states in the newsletter that AGM will be on Thursday the 23rd of January. This in fact is a Tuesday. The Tuesday is the correct date for the AGM. We spoke about how to rectify this, it was suggested that we could write on the envelopes the correct date, however considering the joke names and addresses that were found amongst the member list we decided that it might just confuse people further. A notice will be placed in the newspaper and a signs put up in Angling shops. Dougie stated that people donâ€™t go into angling shops in the close season as they are not fishing however considering some unscrupulous members were still catching Salmon a full month after the season ended I would imagine they might still be stocking up on prawns or such like.
You gotta love it- the one thing that had to be rightâ€¦..was wrong.
