Fresh Wind!

The AGM of Boyle & District Angling Club was held last night. A new format for the club was introduced in agreement with all those present and new officers and a committee were elected to look after the management of the Club for the next year.

The new committee of a Total of 12 persons consists of the elected officers, vice- and assistant officers and 5 additional members as follows:

Chairman: Eamon Conroy
Vice-Chairman: Patrick Egan
Secretary: Jane Suffin
Assistant Secretary: Brian Rush
Treasurer: Hubert Geoghegan
Assistant Treasurer: Shane O'Dowd
PRO/blogmaster: Bodo Funke

Owen Garvin
John Nicholson
David Greene
Joe Mulrennan
John Gallagher

I am personnally excited about this new concept and in particular about the fact that a few more of the younger generations have made it into the committee and will be able to have some input into the running of this club.

I want to congratulate the new chairman and his committee and sincerely wish them/ us the best of luck with the tasks ahead.

So it looks like you are going to put up with me here on this medium for another while as the running of the blog is now part of the PRO job-sheet.
Thanks to everybody for showing an interest and looking in here over the past year. I will try to update this column frequently with hopefully some relevant and interesting items on a continuing basis.

An update with photos of our Christmas Party and Presentation of the Angler of the Year will follow here soon.

An EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting) of Boyle & District Angling Club will be held on Thursday January 8th 2009 in Tawnytaskin School, Boyle.
On the agenda for this meeting is the presentation and hopefully adaption of a constitution for the Club.
