Club finances approved from the membership.
Fishery    2019
It was mentioned that due to swearing and abusive language directed at the Glebe fishery owner by a club member the Big Bash AC is now banned from the Glebe fishery and the club will not be allowed back. This is on the back of the arranged knock up where we were moved to Lake 9 and lake 3 from our original lakes.
A lot of members were unhappy at this news and a discussion took place and it was decided that an extra rule will be added in the rules which states an instant ban would be applied to any member who brings the Big Bash AC into disrepute at any fishery. In this instance because no rule was in place it was thought suffice to mention the club members name in these records.
Note editors priviledge This has since been removed because the member in question will know who was guilty of the swearing resulting in the club ban affecting all club members. It is then up to the person in question as to if he retains his anonymity or goes public.
