Club Match Pools

Club match pools increased from €10 to €15, except on commercial venues where it remains €10. Section payout will stay the same but overall (1st/2nd/3rd) payout will double. This means that for a 15 peg match the overall payout would be €75, €50, €25 respectively

> Golden peg will be drawn using only pegs from competing anglers

  • > No more monthly meetings. Instead, committee meetings every second month.
