ESSEX PAC REGION 102 wishes all our pikers in the region a very merry Xmas and a happy new year. I'll be having a tipple on Xmas day, reflecting back on the last few months and how exciting it's all been, starting up a new region. Thanks to everyone who has lent their support and to all those who have attended our speaker evenings and our first fishmeet. 2011 holds fantastic and exciting times ahead, not least with the guest speakers lined up for Jan, Feb and March. We have been reaching out now with our posters hitting the tackle shops each month, spreading the word. Last month, a dozen tackle shops were displaying our posters advertising the meetings, from Chelmsford, Stanford-le Hope, Canvey, Benfleet, Brentwood, Basildon and Billericay to name a few.
We have had all sorts of new faces at the meetings each month, it's been fantastic getting the Essex pikers together in one venue, it's great to see them all chatting between themselves. Long may that continue.
2011 will herald big things for the Essex PAC, we will be working twice as hard at getting the word out there.
Thanks guys for your support.
Sean Ellis, RO, ESSEX PAC 102.
