Following a request at the 2016 AGM it has been decided to take on 20 new members to fish the RCAS Troy lake for the season June 16th 2016 to March 15th 2017, Note this DOES NOT include the close season. Membership is for the RCAS Troy lake only, There is no guarantee this will continue after the 2017/18 and will be voted on at the 2018 AGM to continue or not. Troy membership does not give the member a right to vote at the AGM. Troy membership does not include close season fishing. Cost £180 includes one key to main gates, additional gate keys and freezer shed keys can be purchased at £10 each. For the 2017/18 season and onwards either an opt out fee or work party completion will be required. This by-law was ratified at the 2017 .2018 A GM and again in 2019 into the Rules and Regulations, but will be voted on every year at the AGM.
The Sailing Club Road by South Troy Lake is a Private Road and though members are allowed to drop off their tackle on our North Troy lake, by crossing over the Colne on the pedestrian bridge, they are not allowed to subsequently park there. The Byelaw is therefore:NO OVERNIGHT PARKING ON THE SAILING CLUB ROAD. This byelaw will be ratified into the Rules and Regulations at the next AGM.
The committee have instigated the following Byelaw. DUE TO A SERIOUS DOG INCIDENT IN WHICH A COMMITTEE MEMBER NEEDED A SKIN GRAFT ON A CRITICAL ARM WOUND, ALL DOGS MUST BE KEPT ON A LEAD AT ALL TIMES, WHETHER JUST WALKING AROUND THE LAKES OR IN A SWIM. DOGS IN SWIMS MUST BE SECURELY TETHERED WHILE THE OWNER GOES ABOUT HIS/HER FISHING. ALL DOGS MUST BE UNDER THE CONTROL OF AN ADULT AT ALL TIMES. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS NEW BYE-LAW COULD MEAN EXPULSION FROM THE RCAS.
