We had 31 members attend today’s match at The Glebe fished in very pleasant conditions & we managed to dodge the showers. So a nice day was had by all. Massive thanks to Mr Dippy Ward for running today’s match, sorting the pegging out, collecting in the pools money, calling all in & all out then paying people out. No wonder he struggles during the match as he must be exhausted with all this going on. However, he still managed to weigh 130lb 2oz today from rocket ship peg 20 on lake 1. Your efforts are appreciated by us all Mr Ward. To say it fished well today is an understatement, 26 anglers weighed more than 100lb & the lowest weight was a respectable 60lb+. In fact we had 4 weights in excess of 200lb plus another 3 in excess of 190lb ! Today’s match winner was Andrew Williams (pictured) from peg 103 on lake 7 who weighed in 252lb 14oz catching most of his fish on the feeder with micros & maggots before switching to his margins fishing worms on the hook then dead maggots feeding..
DIPPYS BIRTHDAY Happy birthday to our living legend Mr Dippy Ward. Friday is his birthday and we should all wish him a nice day on his remarkable achievement of making it to 72 years of age. It is also worth noting that this would have also been Hitlers birthday, obviously no connection. (Thanks again to Julia Ward for providing this information). It is a dual celebration because the launch of Mr Wards new book titled “how I messed up 513 winning pegs “ is pencilled in for the same date…except that there’s a small problem. The publishers were unsure how many copies to print on the first run. With Mr Wards global fan club it was anticipated that the first edition would sell at least two hundred and fifty-thousand copies. You will recall that we asked his many thousands of fans to confirm if they wanted to reserve a copy. After checking carefully we are just a little short of our target. Julia Ward has ordered one and we have three more confirmed orders. It is possible that many..
Dear Members, A CELEBRATION The Committee has decided that we should have a major celebration to give credit where it is due to our very own Mr Dippy Ward. As you know what started out as a paperback highlighting how Mr Dippy had messed up 512 winning pegs has now also turned into a motion picture as well as a book. The committee has decided that the book can now go to the publishers after the final chapter was completed on Sunday 8th April, a date which will surely go down in angling history. On this date Mr Ward was the top weight overall at the Glebe with a magnificent weight of 145lbs 8oz. The publishers are committed to launch the book on April 20th, Mr Wards 72nd birthday (Thanks to Julia for supplying the details). The King Power Stadium has been booked for the launch and with a limited capacity of only thirty-thousand hopes are that this venue will be big enough. At the launch Mr Ward will be signing numbered copies of the hard back book. As an alternative and bearing in mind the..
