St George and Sutherland Anglers Club and the Corona Virus

Due to the ongoing Government response to the Corona Virus situation and in the interests of the health of our members the Committee has decided on the following actions.

1. Cancellation of all club meetings until at least the end of June when the Committee will review the situation
2. Committee business will be conducted through remote means i.e. phone and emails, until at least the end of June when the Committee will review the situation
3. Postponement of all club competitions (Championships and Social) until at least the end of June when the Committee will review the situation. This is in line with the NSW FCA directive of which we are an affiliated club
4. Postponement of all Social gatherings i.e Life members day, until at least the end of June when the Committee will review the situation

The Club ramp will stay open for now. This may change depending on what further restriction are imposed by the Government. When using the ramp, it is expected that the current social distancing rules will be adhered to. Please do not gather at the ramp in large numbers. When using the ramp area launch your boat or retrieve your boat and leave the area. If there more than 4 members cleaning fish at the cleaning tables, please wait until a member leaves then clean your fish. The Committee will be monitoring the use of the ramp and cleaning facilities and will not hesitate to close the facilities should social distancing rules not be adhered to.

The Committee is committed to ensure that members can still keep fishing whilst the government still allows us to.

We are also want to ensure members still feel part of a fishing club. To ensure you get your regular fishing club fix the club will: -

a) Still send you the monthly magazine. If you wish to receive the magazine via email rather than post just contact us at contact@stgeorgeanglers.com and we will send you a copy.
b) We will be regularly posting on our Facebook site. If you are not on Facebook you can access the site via www.facebook.com/stgeorgeanglers or visit our web page, http://www.stgeorgeanglers.com.au/ and see posts there.
c) We are in the process of updating our website with more information
d) We will be sending emails with important information and updates. If you are a financial member and are not receiving emails from the club please send an email to contact@stgeorgeanglers.com.au

Keep sending us pictures of your fish and stories for our magazine. If there are topics you would like us to discuss or inform people of please send these in to contact@stgeorgeanglers.com.au .

In these uncertain times when we are being separated from not only our fishing buddies but also family and friends it is important that we support each other in anyway we can and our shared love of fishing is one way we can do that.

Stay Healthy

The Committee
