Combe Martin SAC members assembled at the White Lion Inn, Braunton for their AGM where close to twenty members were in attendance. The clubs officers reported on a good year for the club with a significant upturn in membership. Nick Phillips and Wayne Thomas continue in their roles as Secretary and Chairman (a position we have shared for close to forty years). The club thanked Graham Snow for his sterling service as Cup Custodian over many years. The position has been taken by Rob Scoines. Young Jack Phillips has taken on the role of club Webmaster.
The club are considering joining the Angling Trust to take a greater role in consultations that affect Sea Angling and support the National Governing body. This will also offer insurance for club members. The membership endorsed joining the Trust if the committee sanction the move following a meeting with an Angling Trust coordinator. The club will remain in The BCFSA.
A full calendar of events was discussed and will be drafted and published in due course.
Contact details for membership can be found on the clubs website : www.cmsac.co.uk
