Watford Piscators Annual Prize Giving and Barbecue for the 2016/2017 Season

September 14, 2017

This event was held  Sunday 3rd September immediately after the competition on Tolpits Lake.

Trevor Francis started proceedings by welcoming those present and thanking all those  who had helped in various ways throughout the season.

Trevor went on to thank Tony Edwards' partner Maggie, and and her two daughters, for helping Bob Horwood with the excellent barbecue, for providing a selection of delicious cakes and also taking photographs of members receiving trophies.  He also thanked Ian Halford's wife Marcia for providing some very tasty Malaysian Pasties.  Nobody needed to go home hungry.

He went on to thank Wally Thomas for  maintaining the records of competition results and co-operating with Simon Hutchings who manages the website. Simon is doing an excellent job of keeping it up to date.
