Age Groups

There has been some confusion of late about the age groups you can compete in for our competitions, so to clarify:

Those members who are 55 and up to 64 years old at the start (FW1) of any season will be deemed to be competing in the  Veteran class unless the weigh-master is advised prior to the season start.
Likewise if you are 65+ years old at the start (FW1) of any season you will be deemed to be competing in the GO class unless the weigh-master is advised prior to the season start.

If you are 55+ but would like to compete in Open, you can, but that decision would be valid for the entire season including casting events.
The same applies to GO members, if you would like to compete as Veteran or Open, you need to make that declaration before the season starts.

Please bear in mind that ALL anglers are competing for Overall Champion regardless of age.
