    What's the reasoning behind the 'back on the beach by 4' rule?
  3. MidlandYakker

    MidlandYakker Blenny

    So we don't have to worry about people being out on the water whilst we're trying to organise the weigh in.

    Paddle power only does that mean no hobie?

    im no paddling puff but hobbie yaks have the paddles underneath the bloody yak wake up and smell the coffee or are you just trying to be awkward

    Is that not what the 'safety boat' is for?
  7. MidlandYakker

    MidlandYakker Blenny

    You're fine with your Hobie, Steve.

    Kev, what is the issue? I just wanted to make it black and white.

    Feeling grumpy are we Alain.
    Ian knows me well enough to im not being awkward just having a bit of fun and I'll think you'll find they are fins under the Hobie not paddles but that's splitting hairs.
    See u soon Ian and keep up the good work mate.

    Love it when someone who has clearly invested a lot of their own time and effort into something, posts some positive news and the only posts are pathetic little comments or gripes.

    Simple solution if you don't like it don't get involved.

    If you have nothing positive to say button it or go out there and invest your own time in making something for like minded people to enjoy.

    Cynical sad individuals.

    Thats a bit off mate, no ones been directly negative about it at all.

    My only problem with it is that it is a recipe for disqualifications to be honest, there's the potential for people to misjudge their return paddle and arrive a few minutes late, the possibility of poor weather moving in late in the match and delaying return to the beach on time, plus a myriad reasons that could make someone late back in despite thier best attempts.

    The system was always a "stop fishing at X time and be weighed in by Y time" at this particular match (I understand that this whole strict landing by a certain time rule is normal at other matches in the UK, it's just never been a thing for this match). people aren't normally thrilled with change so this is bound to raise a few questions, and what started as a 6hr match will now for me be a 5.5hr match at best to ensure im back on the beach with time to spare if I catch any possible placing fish

    I'm not trying to be negative and will happily fish the match, there's a hell of a lot of organising that goes on to provide these events for us and for that we should all be thankful to the lads and lasses that put themselves out for it.

    See how it goes mate and all the best, don't take negative feedback to heart as im sure it will be an excellent event :)

    Plain and simple imo...

    The launch is at 10am and back on the beach for 4pm.... not a hard concept to grasp really...

    If your not back on time and get disqualified then that's your own hard luck for not making sure you are back!

    If you choose to paddle over the horizon, that's your choice but it's gonna eat into your fishing time!

    People who are willing to step up and give up their free time to organise matches for nowt are few and far between :(

    Its great that some lads do it for the masses who don't have the time, skills or energy go do it :)

    If the organisers decide thats the rule then I dont see the problem ?? After all its the same for everyone is it not ???

    Either accept the rule, dont fish the match, or form your own competition and set of rules ;)

    Be thankfull tbat someone has worked hard and given up a lot of their time go provide a comptetition for everyone to enjoy :)

    Well said rob

    Basically what Ben said, Ian. I can see both sides so fair enough, like you said at least the rules are black and white, so there can't be another Flamborough match style farce with the finishing time.

    Make your mind up :-X
