HDAA carp evening a huge success
Well what an evening at the HDAA carp night with Terry Hearn.
It was great to see some old faces and speak to some new ones and our little competitions were well received with Rich Share and Lee Watson winning the Carp-Talk subscriptions and Chris Fullard winning the CC Moore bait package with his guess of 298 boilies and mixers in the jar! (There were 297)
Terry Hearn was spot on and now has one of our hoody’s that should hopefully appear in the media someday and in total we raised £248.46p, which is fantastic so thank you to everyone who supported us.
A big thanks to Matt Ward and HDAA for having us and donating £75 from ticket sales and we look forward to being there next year!
