Please note that it was discussed and decided on the AGM that fishing on the jetty is not allowed at all. Not by members, neither their children for safety reasons. If a member or their children are caught or seen fishing from the jetty, they will be suspended from the club for a period of three months.
All boat members please take note in case of an incident involving our club or our members, we need to have a search team. Funds plus fuel will be provided for the boats and teams ready on a 24 hr basis. Kind regards - Committee - Meerensee Boat Club
