IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT TO MEMBERS

Due to the necessity for pest control at Hunstrete, which may include the

use of live firearms, the BAA committee has decided to alter the winter

access times to the complex.

 This is to ensure as best as possible that no members are present when pest control is in operation and that the best times for control are available to shooters.

 As from Monday 9th December 2019

the winter access times will be 8am to 7pm.

PEST CONTROL AT HUNSTRETE

 This may cause some disturbance to members but it is a necessary part of pest control as an alternative to culling.

Public Footpath

BATHAMPTON AA

 It has come to the attention of the committee that a recent altercation took place at Hunstrete between a member/members and a member of the public.

 This was manly due to a member of the public straying on to a vacant fishing peg near to where a member had cast a bait.

 As the public footpath runs along one bank of Main Lake it is inevitable that the public will be close to the lake side and this situation will not change.

 However, members of the public are not permitted to deviate from the path and should not stand on fishing platforms as this may cause annoyance to members fishing near to a peg that is along the footpath.

 Will members please attempt to resolve any situations amicably and if need be seek the assistance of a club official if present.

Many Thanks

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE BAA COMMITTEE NEWTON PARK – UPPER LAKE

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE BAA COMMITTEE

NEWTON PARK – UPPER LAKE

 

It has been brought to the attention of the committee by the administrators at Bath Spa College that fishing activities have been taking place at the UPPER lake.

BAA members do not have permission to fish this lake and any member fishing there will be deemed to be poaching and as such bringing the name of the Association into disrepute.

If apprehended, membership of the Association will cease immediately for the individual(s) pending a tribunal by the Association and the most likely outcome will be a life ban from the Association.

The administrators at the college will also be within their rights to pursue prosecution against any individual fishing the Upper Lake and security staff have been made aware of the situation and

will be vigilant in curtailing this illegality.
