I also enjoy it, and think they are a good idea to get to meet the other members and have a laugh, get to know the owner too. I cant always make it but ive enjoyed every one ive been on, owner buys lunch bit of chit chat . Mind you i can remember grumbling about cheap labour in the past but looking at it now i think work parties are okay and ive never felt forced to go yet.

Syndicates can be good if the numbers are relatively low and toxic members/bailiffs are quickly removed.

Unfortunately Carp fishing seems to breed toxic individuals at an alarming rate but then again this may be just a reflection of an increasingly DGAF selfish society.

One of my club lakes has a incentive to carry out work parties, £10 voucher towards next season membership for every party you attend.

I personally enjoy the work parties

IMO doing work parties is part and parcel of being in a syndicate. The one I am on now doesn't seem to have them but plenty of work has gone on down there.

Personally I Like doing work parties.
Many hands, make light work, friendships, and satisfaction with improving the venue..

My memory is not that good but didn't we have work parties back in the rmc/cemex days? Remember I was on another cemex ticket when the big sell happened and roach was on my radar. Again if memory serves he paid £300,000 for it but that was still big money back then and volunteers may have helped fence it but doubt they paid for the materials, believe he also added stock and a future stocking plan. Personal opinions may differ but would I still like to fish there, yes, would I do work parties, yes, as said it gets members together that may otherwise not meet.

I donít get any of these syndicate jokes, and I donít think I will ever understand that.
This whole thing looks like a great scam intended for people who want to get passive income without doing anything. This is not really what you can do in our capitalist society unless you really have a lot of brains and some knowledge.
I just hope that I will be able to save enough money for my retirement with goodlifehomeloans.com unless I am completely tired of working and wasting my precious time doing things that I donít like at all.

Not everyone is and the owner has to make a living, the jump in price is high though, not the overall price.

The first to moan, and the ones that always moan.....exactly the same with local clubs, when the members help is truly needed, they are.....invisible

I'm still waiting for the punchline of this syndicate joke.

Although we have gone off tangent a bit; my point of view is work parties are part and parcel of joining a syndicate. I just like to put something back in and hope it pays me back...it's still owes me bigtime !! lol
Some only have one a year. The syndicate I'm on, and bailiff will have one each month. We have plenty of work to do on there.

Ticket is beginning of May to end of March. If you do 3 work parties during that time you are allowed to fish April.
No one is forced to come but you can guarantee that the work parties in Jan-March we will have 10+ members.

One thing for sure though is the first to moan about something will be the last to turn up to a work party. (edit) that is in general not just my syndicate

Work parties could also be thought of as a way to help keep the ticket price realistic and inclusive, plus still have the ability to spend on things like stock fish, materials, barley straw, lime etc...

Totally agree with this, never thought of a work party as free labour. More of a get together with everyone, you usually get fed and then you fish the night. Whatís the problem?
