Assemblée Générale du Club, Novembre 2017
On November 25, 2017, in the Salle des Cistes in Carnon, the Carnon Fishing Club General Assembly was held. The Club is very active in Carnonnaise life as recalled by Mr Dominique Balzamo and Mrs Laurence Gely representing the Port and the Town Hall.
President Jean Luc Naudet, assisted by the Club board, presented the many activities which took place throughout the year. In particular the fishing trip for a class of children and the participation in the events of the Port, with introductions to the sea fishing by boat and from shore for adults and children.
The introduction to fishing for children is an activity put forward by Rudy Robin throughout the year.
The Master and the other offshore trips also gathered many participants and created an animation on the Port.
With a balanced budget presented by René Horain, the club is ready for a 2018 year full of projects, with classics such as the Master that will take place on the first Saturday of August and new trips in Spain.
A meal allowed all members present (nearly 50), to develop projects for the coming year.

Events June 2017
The members and the Carnon Fishing club have broken the Club's activity records in June 2017.
On 13th June nearly 30 members gathered at the 'Maison Familiale des Mines id'Alès at Carnon Plage to organize the two strong events of this month and all had a dinner by the beach.
On the 17th, during the "Carnon en folie" events organized by the municipality, the CFC took over 50 people for an hour fishing at sea. Despite the windy weather conditions that required the team strong efforts when docking. All the "guests" were delighted with the trip and many promised to return if the opportunity arises. In the evening the municipality organized a dinner prepared by the cheerful Carnonnais to thank the organizers of the activities and the CFC was very well represented.
On 20 June, after many joint efforts, we welcomed the Ulis class of Mauguio to allow these slightly handicapped children and their teachers to enjoy a fishing trip at sea. Great atmosphere for these children who were able to catch some fishes which were released when the size was not the right one. Lunch in common with club members and french fries ... All were delighted.
Thank you to all the members of the CFC who gave their time for these events.
