    We are planning a fun weekend incorporating a fishing competition.
    Campsite : http://www.hoar-park.co.uk/
    Date : 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th September
    Fishing venue : http://www.hoarparkfishery.co.uk/


    The weekend is being organised by C.L.S and DMS , briefly Hoar park has something for everyone including ,craft shops , resturant/bar , childrens farm and playground , garden centre ...etc Located between Nuneaton and Birmingham set in fantastic countryside. Opposite the site on a Sunday is one of the largest carboot sales in the Midlands (weather permitting.

    Fishing is not compulsary , plenty of other things to see and do.......

    The campsite has a few hardstandings should the weather not be kind , fresh water and Elsan point (no hookups) plenty of room for everyone.

    There are 2 lakes approximately 1.5 Acres and 3/4 Acre, both are stocked with a mixture of course fish including Carp to 21lb, Tench, Roach, Bream,Gudgeon and Rudd.
    The Lakes are set amongst some stunning rolling countryside with 360 degree views of fields and forest. Depending on numbers we can have bothg lakes for the competition. Shay who runs the fishery has now got his certificate / badge to coach fishing so if anyone wants a lesson this can be arranged (Not you Alan (DMS) :Rofl1::Rofl1:) Refreshments , breakfasts can be delivered to your peg if required. Shay will oversee the competition and will weigh all fish and catches.



    Thursday 16th : For those who want to arrive early (may be to practise fishing :Laughing:) opens 1.00pm

    Friday 17th : We have the Barn booked for the weekend , Friday night is Quiz night (with a twist) , bring your own refreshments and nibbles , the weather can,t spoil our FUN :Smile:

    Saturday 18th : Fishing competition between 10.00am and 3.00pm . For those not fishing and who fancy some retail therapy , Direct Taxis ( http://www.directtaxisltd.co.uk/) can arrange a minibus to Birmingham or Coventry for a shopping expedition ( Price dependant on numbers )

    Saturday evening we have a Race night , Race nights give you all the excitement of the races without losing all your money :BigGrin:. You are able to bet on a race from the comfort of your own seat , we will also be having an American type supper .

    Sunday 19th : Massive carboot opposite campsite for bargains galore

    No doubt we will come up with more ideas before the weekend arrives :Laughing: :Wink:

    Pitch £7.50 per night incl. use of the Barn and entertainment

    Fishing £5.00 per peg

    Oh what a shame, I love supporting meets and this one sounds like it will be great, in fact if its half as good as the last fishing meet or the Robbie meet as its now known it will be a blast.
    However, its the weekend of the Bath comedy walk and we are down to attend and I promised JJ I would heckle him :cry:

    Thats a shame Paul , I have seen you fish and DMS could have had some competition :Rofl1:

    Unfortunatly it was the only weekend that the barn was available , with the great British weather we thought it was a must :Smile: to have an undercover venue

    This really is an easy venue to fish, almost overstocked , my lad Daniel has been fishing there this afternoon and had over 40 fish on the bank. So Alan (DMS) Hopefully should catch something :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I'm sorry but I have to withdraw from this meet as I have just found out that our annual family get together is on the same week-end.

    Tight lines.

    We are interested in the meet :thumb: (but not in the fishing! :thumbdown:) and would like you to put us on the list.

    I need to confirm with work though and may not be able to confirm until early September if we will arrive Friday or Saturday. Is that a problem?

    Robin, Hilary and James. (plus the cats :Wink:)
