Eastern Region Shield 2021 Cancelled - 15th Aug 2021 by email

Dear Captains

After 3 attempts to secure team entries for this year’s event, we have only managed to secure 3 teams. I was expecting a surge in angler numbers after last year, but it seems angling and patricianly match is struggling.  Yes, the match calendar is busy as it has been for several years, but we have always found a way of supporting this historic regional competition. Sadly, it seems no more.  So, we have decided to cancel this year’s event.

The host club Boston and District have spent many hours on clearly some 60 new pegs on this once famous match venue, as well as addition weed cutting by the EA and the placement of additional weed booms. We have requested they halt their efforts from today.

We had scheduled the event as normal in the 2nd weekend of Sept, but this year the Div 2 national was moved to the same weekend, in which over 400 team anglers take part. So this could be the main reason. We couldn’t move it forward as it clashed with the Div 1 national and moving it back clashed with the start of the winter leagues. So I really have to ask, is their room for this competition any more.

Keep safe    

Regards

Kelvin & Andy
