WORCESTER AND DISTRICT UNITED ANGLERS’ ASSOCIATION

2016 THURSDAY CANAL OPENS
                  Please find below full details of the Canal Open Contests which we plan to run this year. I hope that this information will help those anglers who hope to join in and who need advance notice to plan work and/or holiday commitments.
We shall be organising five open contests over the Summer and then a second series of another five matches during the Autumn.
You will note that we are making two changes in 2016:
1. pools will no longer be voluntary - the entry fee for each open match will be £15 and all of this will be paid out in prize money subject only to a deduction from the total of entry fees collected of a £50 donation to WDUAA funds (or £3 for every peg fished, whichever sum is the greater);and
2. if you are over sixty years of age and want to compete in the Summer and/or Autumn Pensioners’ Leagues which are fished within the Thursday Canal Open Contests (best four results out of each five matches to count)
then you must have a current WDUAA Card (either Honorary or from an Affiliated Club - it does not matter which) before the first match in the League in which you want to participate.

Honorary WDUAA Cards at £20 for anglers over sixty years of age may be bought from Jerry Bartlett before the draw for every Thursday Canal Open Contest.

Incorporating a Pensioners’ League (best 4 results out of 5 contests) for WDUAA Card holders over 60 years of age.
THERE WILL BE WDUAA AUTUMN CANAL CONTESTS ON 22 SEPT, 06 AND 20 OCT AND 03 AND 17 NOV.

“The first 2016 WDUAA Thursday Canal Open Contest will be held this week on 2nd June. Further Birmingham/Worcester Canal Open Contests are scheduled for 16th and 30th  June and 14th  and 28th July. All draws at 09.00 on Perdiswell Leisure Centre Car Park. Please arrive early.

All welcome. No booking, membership card or day ticket needed. £15 match fee payable at the draw. A total of £50 or £3 per contestant (whichever sum is the greater) will be paid into WDUAA funds. What remains of the entry fees collected on the day will all be paid out in cash prizes. Depending on how many anglers fish each contest, we may be able to pay out a £100 first prize with proportional cash awards for the first and second placed individuals plus two section winner payments. The more anglers who enter each open contest, the more we can pay out in cash prizes! 

If you are over sixty and want to fish the Pensioners’ League (best four results out of five contests to count) which runs inside the Thursday Canal Opens (at no additional match fee) then please bring your WDUAA Card with you or buy one from Jerry Bartlett (cost £20) just before the 09.00 draw 0n 02.06.16.

Cash prizes for the Pensioners’ League are neither paid out of WDUAA funds nor are they deducted from the monies collected in open contest entry fees. All Pensioners’ League costs are funded out of the proceeds of the raffles which we organise before each Open Contest draw. Surplus raffle monies are paid into WDUAA funds.

There are no cash prizes for the highest placed pensioners in each Open Contest. We aim to make money awards to the first three individual anglers aged over sixty with the highest points totals at the end of the five match series. Final positions are calculated by discounting each pensioner angler’s lowest points total and aggregating his/her points total from each of his/her four most successful contests. Pensioners’ contest points are allocated after removing from the weigh in sheets all the “not over sixty years of age” open match anglers’ results.

A bottle of whisky goes to the pensioner with best five contest weight aggregate who has not won a cash prize in any of the Open Contests or in the Pensioners’ League.

By the way, the winning weight in a contest held on the Birmingham and Worcester Canal at Perdiswell on Sunday 29 May was 33-07-00.”
