How do I contact the Honorary Secretary or Membership Secretary if I have a query? You will need to set up a Clubmate profile (if you don’t already have one) and then you can e-mail him. Failing that, you may write a letter to The Membership Secretary, ODAA, c/o The Original Cobbler, 79 Cotmandene Crescent, St. Paul’s Cray, BR5 2RA.
How do I renew my membership or join ODAA? You have TWO options. The FIRST and, for most people, most convenient, is to go on-line to Clubmate.fish/odaa and follow the on-screen prompts. The SECOND option is to use a paper form and follow the instructions printed on it. You can print a paper form off of the website OR collect one from The Original Cobbler, 79 Cotmandene Crescent, St. Paul’s Cray, BR5 2RA OR from one of the following TWO tackle shops: Danson Angling in Bexley (Blendon) or Fish On in Paddock Wood NOTE - it is ESSENTIAL that if you use the on-line Clubmate system, you upload a photograph of yourself otherwise it will not work.
How long does it take to get my Membership Card and Security Key? Up to TEN days, though usually a little less.
What if I want to get a map booklet? That will be posted to you separately if you have paid for one and requested it.
Can I take someone such as my wife, husband, partner, carer with me? Yes, but they MUST have a permit, and these are issued by the Membership Secretary separately to other cards. A non-fishing partner or carer card costs £10, and if they want to fish, it is £30. If you join on-line, make sure you use the Clubmate e-mail system to tell the Membership Secretary the name of that person, so he can send them their own card.
I have done one a work party and received a discount voucher how do I redeem it? If you use a PAPER form to renew your Membership, send the voucher or vouchers when you return the form, and adjust the membership fee that you pay accordingly. Each voucher (maximum THREE) is worth £10. If you use the on-line Clubmate system, e-mail the Membership Secretary who will give you a special code. You then click on the 'Start a Membership tab and then scroll to the bottom. There is a space to add the code there.
How do I do online guest tickets At the moment, the issue of Guest Permits (on-line and at shops) has been suspended until further notice.
