Friday 21st April 2017 Presentation Night.

DSCN3670

 

On Friday 21st of April we held our annual presentation night at the sailing club and what a good night it was.

 

We started off with Treasurer Don Holland presenting a cheque of £200 to Phil Counsell and Dave Parsons on behalf of the RNLI.

This money has been raised by the club through our member’s annual subscriptions. Phil was then on hand to present the trophies to the winners.

Martin Quin had a good night, starting off by collecting both the Tony Holley Trophy for a dogfish of 2lbs 3ozs and the Presidents Cup for his 7lbs 2.5oz bass.

This bass also won Martin the Bass Trophy and he picked up the Labbe Challenge Cup as well with 5 species.

Martin’s boat Seanies Flyer also won the Top Boat Trophy completing a very successful night for him.

Pete Nicholson also had a successful night but as he was unable to attend this year, his boat partner Mark Bowden had to collect Pete’s trophies on his behalf.

You can imagine the comments Mark received each time he came up to collect one of Pete’s trophies!

Pete had won the Ray farthing trophy with a conger eel of 23lbs 8ozs, which also won him the Competition Conger Cup. Pete won the Whitbread Thornback Trophy with a ray of 13lbs 8oz.

Pete was also joint winner of the Fred Peters Trophy on 5 species with Andy Georgiou and Terry Garret and Pete was Mustad Runner up, again tied with Terry Garret on 15 points each.

 

DSCN3675The Annual Thornback Trophy was won by Andy Georgiou with a smoothound of 11lbs 4oz,  and Andy also picked up the Away day Trophy with a bull huss of 4lbs 8oz.

He won the Cod Trophy with the best of his many double figure cod he caught last year, a fish of 16lbs 1 oz. This all added up to Andy winning the Mustad Trophy with 30 points as well.

Mark Bowden did win a trophy of his own, the Conger Shield for his eel of 15lbs 10ozs.

 

DSCN3696

 

Richard Saxby won Best Flatfish Trophy and Best Overall Specimen Trophy with his flounder of 1lb 11ozs.

Please nobody mention rockling!!

Finally the most prestigious award of the evening the Boob of the Year, there was only one real candidate this year, or should I say group of candidates! The Saxbys.

What with getting the truck stuck in the mud and making the daily internet papers and running out of oil down Watchet way, we had to take it on the chin this year.

Although Fred Saxby may have cause to grumble as he was not present at either cock up!

DSCN3719It was a great night and special mention must go to Tracey for all her usual organisation and for cooking the curries and sorting out the food orders.

Simon made a grand job of hosting the evening and thanks to Phil Counsell for handing out the trophies.

Dom and Alex managed the bar and there was also a good raffle arranged by John May.

Apologies if I missed anyone out but a big thanks to all those who helped in any way.
