dhossackMany thanks to all that have contributed to the post. As we know, after the meeting in March minutes were sent out detailing the decision made by members at that meeting to trial a central venue for Club Nights for East and West to attend on the same night. These minutes received no feedback from any quarter and that’s a pity because had I received any negative comments we would have had almost two months to revisit the decision and hopefully come to a more acceptable solution for all. As I’m sure most will understand, it can be very difficult for me as RO and the team to resolve situations when information is not being passed on to us by club members. Moving forward, in an effort to resolve the situation in the West I propose we look towards the upcoming meeting on Saturday 6th July. I will send out an agenda with the item of Club Nights/Business Meetings firmly on this agenda and invite members to make suggestions or comments on this or any other topics for discussion. I would hope for a good attendance on the day. Donald. R1, RO.firstname.lastname@example.org 724441
MadelvicI think you raise some fair points Scott. But I don't have the same recollection as you of the March meeting. It wasn't that the West meeting was cancelled (nor the East for that matter). What did happen as I recall, was a small and vocal number of members were pushing hard for a joint meeting over the summer months somewhere in between. This was done to try to bring the Club together. The irony for me, and with genuine good intent, the most vocal of the proponents for a joint meeting was a member from the West. I recall the same member pushing for the same at Bo'ness previously For what it is worth I was not in favour, and I said so but was willing to give it a go. I agree with Craig! I'd far rather meet locally. I can walk to the location for the East meeting but I drove 90 miles (not 80) in the hope / expectation of meeting up with Members whose company I've enjoyed in the past. So I reacted badly when I found out afterwards that the West had had a separate meeting. I do apologise if I've stirred things up The only good thing coming out of this is at least feelings are being aired and something needs to change for the better. Let's hope we can fix it
