Newsheet 361 - August 2017

In memory of Walt Brown who sadly died on Thursday 20th July, following a long illness. Walt was a long time member of the YDAA committee, serving as Chairman between 1987-2004. He was also well know on the local and national match scene, being three times Ouse Champion. Our condolences go to his family and friends.

Apparently difficulties are being experienced here regarding the installation of the ‘screw’ due to flood conditions, but work is still being carried out. Care should be taken when visiting this venue.

Left hand bank. YDAA no longer has the right to fish from the ‘kissing gate’ to the picnic area, but negotiations are in hand.

This is to be held on the third Wednesday in November (15th), why not come along and hear what the Committee proposed as projects for 2017 and what has already been achieved, also to be advised of forward planning for 2018. It is for your benefit that the Committee works.

We are pleased to inform the membership that the weed boat has been out and about on Selby Canal and vastly improved access to the water...many thanks to the Canal and River Trust.
