Club Book at GAC
Glasgow Angling Centre continues to offer members the opportunity to earn financial reward for the club. Members can request any purchase they make to be added to the 'Club Book'. Ten percent of the value of your purchase will be added to the club account.
So all you have to do when at the checkout is ask the sales assistant to put your purchase in the 'Club Book'. At the end of the season the club can collect the sum raised by member's contributions, this money is then used towards prizes for junior members and raffle prizes at the Annual Prize Giving.

Fee Paying 2021
Under normal circumstances you would have been notified by now of the dates for the prize giving and feepaying nights, however as you will have guessed neither will proceed due to the circumstances we are all currently facing. Instead of the fee paying nights that are normally hosted in the Boglestone Community Center, all membership fees this year will require to be paid by bank transfer or by cheque postal order.
Membership renewal letters are all ready to be sent out, they will provide all the details you require to pay your membership, however they will not be distributed until the printer is able to progress the printing of membership cards and car parking permits.
So be patient, we just need the current lock down to be lifted.
Members who have provided an email address will have received their subscription letters by now, if you have not please first check your spam folder prior to contacting me. Members who do not have an email address will be receiving their letters within the next few days, by the 9th February. Any issues get in touch.
Until current 'Stay at Home' guidance issued by the Scottish Goverment on the 5th January is modified or lifted no club competitions or work parties will proceed. This will not prevent members from fishing club waters as long as they comply with the guidance below. Additionally no day permits will be sold until COVID restrictions permit the reopening of non-essential shops.
Examples of reasonable excuses to go out:
'local outdoor informal exercise such as walking, cycling, golf, or running (in groups of up to 2 people, plus any children under 12, from no more than 2 households). Exercise can start and finish at a place in your local authority area (or up to 5 miles from its boundary), but you should travel no further than you need to reach to a safe, non-crowded place to exercise in a physically distanced way'.
